In 1963, when our founder, the late Mr. P. C. Mathew first began manufacturing coir mattresses, it was a pioneering effort. In the 50 years that followed, much has changed. People, policies, economies, markets, ergonomic theories, customer preferences and many new technologies. But the spirit of new ventures has endured.
The pioneering effort 50 years ago has endeavored to create India´s leading manufacturer of rubberized coir mattresses. We are now India´s largest exporter of sleep and comfort products. What began as a small manufacturing plant along the quiet canal at Alleppey, Kerala, is today a leading enterprise with the most modern manufacturing processes in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. And customers across the world.
We expect more change in the years to come. But what will stay with us is the endeavour that began it all. A spirit that will challenge and motivate us to innovate and continuously create better sleep and comfort products.
FOUNDER & HERITAGE
In 1963, late Mr. P.C Mathew an enterprising, young entrepreneur, armed with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Benaras Hindu University set out to build a mechanized, rubberized coir plant and completely changed the way mattresses were made.
His vision led to the creation of a range of sleep products that were much more comfortable, durable and easier to maintain than those that were previously available.
The success of Duroflex and its products was nurtured and expanded by his sons, the late Mr. P. Chandy Mathew, a Chemical Engineer from IIT, Madras and a Business Graduate from IIM, Ahmedabad, and Mr. George L Mathew, Bachelor of Economics from Loyola college & a Law Major from Madras Law College. It is their vision and commitment that continues to drive us at Duroflex today.
