“We reached our target for 2021 with a 30% increase in our sales compared to 2020,” Merlgen Euro Designs, Inc. Manager Honeylet Lim said.
It’s a busy time for the homegrown modular cabinet specialist during this span of COVID-19. With the population spending time indoors, home improvement and the creation of a home office with a “work from from” lifestyle proved to be profitable for the modular cabinet maker.
The pandemic period locked in the people. While homes were re-purposed to accommodate home schooling and work, there was also the need to make spaced stress-free. Decluttering was necessary and smart storage systems were more vital than ever. Whatever is in the home should be functional.
The kitchen ranked number one on the list of contracts, counting both new installations and renovations, while home office set-ups came second.
“With the restrictions easing down, homeowners are more relaxed on having our vaccinated staff enter their protected spaces. This also accounts for the high volume of orders that were placed. As to new installations, new residences were quicker to finish construction with the increase of the workforce,” Lim said.
Of the total contracted orders, 80% were served in Davao and 20% were out of town projects.
“Distance is not an issue and Merlgen will deliver the same best product and service wherever it may be,” she added.
Clients were happy to share their feedback on why they invested on the Merlgen brand and they contracted in the time of the pandemic.
From a client in Agusan: “Merlgen was recommended by a contractor. We saw the work executed by Merlgen and the other brands. Merlgen’s workmanship is what made us decide to go for them. Plus, the price is very affordable. It was worth every penny. We didn’t stop constructing our house during the pandemic. Come the interior installations, the border controls ease up and Merlgen was able to make the initial visits and installation.
From a contractor from Davao City: “We wanted to support a locally produced furniture manufacturer that can deliver quality products and service.Merlgen has proved it!
A client from Davao City: “We decided to invest in the Merlgen brand because of its value for money. Merlgen assisted us from the initial site measuring and design to the final stages before production. We were not disappointed. We were impressed with the final outcome.
A client from Davao City: “When pandemic hit, we were forced to stay and work from home. That was the time we saw the need for additional cabinet requirements and at the same time our kitchen needs renovation. We looked for a local manufacturer and we came across Merlgen in SM Lanang. We were satisfied with what Merlgen proposed. Excellent workmanship and quality at its best.
Client from Tagum City: Professionalism and dedication is what Merlgen does at its best! Highly recommended.
