How long has Latexco been in business?

Where is Latexco located?
Latexco has centres in different areas of the world. The headquarters, production and large warehouse are in Belgium. Additional Latexco centres were opened in other parts of the world to meet demand and facilitate high-quality manufacturing and service in these areas. Most of these locations play a role in production and/or distribution, and are located in Singapore, Indonesia, Spain, Sweden, Brazil and the US. In fact, their Asia Pacific office is located right here in Singapore.
This is good news for those of us shopping in Singapore: with Latexco's two centres in the Asia-Pacific region, we do not have lengthy waits for product to come from across the world. Instead, top-notch Latexco products are available to us promptly here with superb service and support.
Is Latexco socially responsible?
Yes, Latexco has a strong commitment to environmental and social responsibility. Some of the steps Latexco has taken already are:
Participation in Flemish Covenant Energy Benchmarking. In doing so, Latexco commits itself to meeting the best international standard of energy efficiency of process installations by 2012 - a continuously improving standard.
Reduction in water consumption and wastewater. To be more environment-friendly, Latexco created new water purification techniques in order to reuse wastewater. As a result there has been over 45% reduction of water usage, and over 90% reduction in wastewater discharged.
Scrap latex recycling facility. Scrap latex from production at Latexco is now recycled into a variety of other items such as sports mats and packing materials. This decreases landfill waste.
Recycling of used packaging materials. Latexco selectively sorts and recycles used industrial packaging to minimize environmental impact.
Socially responsible business culture. In addition to valuing the contributions of its workers, Latexco values community commitment by getting involved in activities that help the local area.
I want real examples: what are some recent achievements and innovations by Latexco?
Latexco was awarded the Industrial Management Winner Award for its wastewater recycling process in 2005.
Latexco has been awarded the following certifications: The Okotex Standard 100, the EuroLATEX ECO-Standard, the LGA certificate, and European Eco-label. These certifications show that Latexco products have been tested by an independent third party and have been found to meet these stringent international criteria.
Sports mattresses are an example of a new product line by Latexco. Latex mattresses designed specifically with the needs of elite athletes in mind have been created. These mattresses have been tested out on real elite athletes to maximise rest, comfort and performance. Latexco sponsors the 'Quick Step' famous cycling team and athletes bring these mattresses along when traveling, for example during the Tour de France. Belgians football team also brought these mattresses to Brazil during the recent 2014 World Cup. These sports mattresses are available at European Bedding in Singapore!
