Uratex formally opens its latest manufacturing plant and showroom in the Cagayan de Oro City. Widely known as the “City of Golden Friendship,” RGC Group of Companies Executive Vice President, Mr. Eddie Gallor, considers CDO as a melting pot because of its accessibility and great base for businesses in Mindanao. According to him, “It [CDO] has always been considered to be one of the most progressive cities in the Philippines. Establishing a manufacturing plant and showroom in CDO is part of our commitment to expand our business in Visayas and Mindanao, and support the continued development in the region.”
Similar facilities have also been opened in Cebu and Davao recently as part of their expansion to the Vis-Min region. The company is also eyeing other areas such as Butuan, Iligan and General Santos City for further expansion in the future.
RGC Group of Companies began its thriving foam business in 1968 when Mr. Robert Cheng realized his goal of producing high-quality foam. His Polyfoam Chemical Corporation soon addressed the demand for foam materials to be used on automotive, bedding, furniture, textile, garment and other industries. Its four decade of being in the business has made Uratex one of the most trusted and awarded foam brands in South East Asia.

When I started to be aware of the things surrounding me, I also started to care about the environment. I believe that Mother Earth deserves our care. Though I was not an avid advocate who devotedly spent my time in volunteering, I subconsciously do things to contribute to Mother Earth’s welfare. I started throwing trash in proper places, turning off the lights when they are not in use, not burning plastic bags and many others.
In 2009, I was introduced to Earth Hour. I believed that their cause is worth it. I started observing it that year with my family and every year thereafter. It was made into a family event. I also used it as an opportunity to share to my kids how to love Mother Earth and take care of it in their own little ways.
Though I wasn’t able to spend Earth Hour with my kids this year, I was able to observe it still. I went to the Habagat Earth Hour Night Ride at Centrio Mall to support their activities and also witnessed the announcing of the winners of the Earth Hour Recycled Lantern Making Contest at Seda Hotel. It was my first time to witness these events during Earth Hour.
The experience was great. I got to know different people and organizations who are advocates of the environment during the Habagat Earth Hour Night Ride from the local, national and international scene. As for the Earth Hour Recycled Lantern Making Contest, being able to witness those beautiful lantern creations from trash was both educational and inspiring.
Some may say turning the lights off for one hour doesn’t make a difference since we do that every night when we go to sleep and even more, but Earth Hour is more than just turning off the lights. It is a movement that creates global awareness that people should take care of Mother Earth and be aware of environmental issues. Turning off the light for an hour symbolizes as our commitment to Mother Earth. We only have one planet to live in and we, the inhabitants, should take care of it.
