Uratex firmly believes that “a family who sleeps and takes a good sleep is happier, healthier, and does more bonding activities.” And the best family that could represent this is no other than Team Kramer

Q and A portion

I got a chance to ask a question on how long does the Kramer family is using URATEX Home products . The family stays in one bed that Mr. Doug Kramer had to order a customized mattress from Uratex , The family is happily using the bed for  few months already. They couldn’t fit -in a king sized bed because of their size and due to the playfulness of the kids .  But the family could easily fit-in  a king and a half sized which Doug named as an “Emperor -sized bed”.

The couple puts the kids to bed when they are already . They would also read bible stories fairy tales and watch DVD’s  marathon  to the kids, until they fell asleep. Mr. Doug and Cheska Kramer  also shared that Kendra even wanted to have her own Uratex Mattress in her own bed, Kendra loved to play around . She is the best endorser of the mattress. 

jam packed- crowd

I have posted several days ago about a story of my mother’s family -Upholstery business spanning for more than 50 years! Almost all our appliances like sofa, mattress, bed and mono-block chairs  are bought from the company.  Some of my aunts are still in the business of upholstery and some of them gradually shifted to interior decorations and townhouse developers.  I must say that it is a life-long partnership with the company.

URATEX HOME showcased their newest,stylish furniture, sofa beds, and home beds  . how the company caters the right kind of  service that each member of the family .


Uratex provides uninterrupted sleep and quality foam because of an innovation called “Quali-5 Cellular Technology” which makes sure that all Uratex foams are produced with world-class quality. It also shows the company’s superior formulation and stringent process through its ISO-90001 certified facilities and top of the class equipment. Their sofa’s and mattress are also hypo-allergenic .

Hampton’s Series

Hampton Series which comes in 4 models: Royale, Prestige, Mystique, and Premiere and AIRLITE COLLECTION . There is an ongoing 10 % to 20% discount promo which customers can avail until this weekend.

Ms. Natividad” Naty ” Cheng- one of the pillars of the company

 The company also established during that decade was a major foam factory in Muntinlupa City to cater to the industrial needs of the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) area; a foam research and development center; and a separate subsidiary called RGC Textile, to manufacture of the Boa fabric for the local toy industry. It was such a privilege to meet the founders and pillars of the upholstery industry . I was a bit surprise that Ms. Naty Cheng knew some of my aunts who were the dealers of URATEX products

URATEX corporate heads and partners

Adults and the General public  will also be very happy hopping around and sleeping comfortably with the URATEX HOME products . I am sure about it since we are using them in our home for several decades!
