In the first quarter of 2020, high-performing brands, such as Lustro, Rossio and Brauhn, came from our tiles and sanitary wares category.This is a result of well-chosen tile designs as well as unique, functional sanitary ware items that are displayed elegantly and prominently in the stores. The company currently sees continuous growth for all exclusive brands, most especially the ceramics line.
Inventory for these in-house brands are stable, despite current pandemic uncertainties. “We maintain six to eight months’ worth of inventory. Although tiles and sanitary wares is one category with stock acquisitions affected by the pandemic, we have addressed this by importing from South East Asian countries that provide easier logistics,” says AllHome Vice Chairman Camille Villar.
