Company Overview

"We will not stop until we give every Filipino a comfortable and affordable mattress to lie on."

- Robert G. Cheng, Founder

Naty Cheng, Founder and CEO

Under a santol tree, Uratex founder Robert G. Cheng started his dream of providing high quality foams and affordable mattresses for every Filipino to lie on. Together with his wife Natividad Y. Cheng, they built Polyfoam Chemical Corporation in 1968 with a capital of Php 4,000 and the help of 10 employees. 

The brand grew to become RGC/Uratex Group of Companies to cater to the growing demands of other industries. This paved the way for the group to venture in other products such as specialized foam for electronics and automotive seating. It also embarked in supplying textile, food packaging, and automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products.

Now in its 53rd year and with 23 plants and showrooms nationwide, the company continues to innovate and use the latest technologies to provide durable, comfortable, and high-quality mattresses for every Filipino home.
