Packaging Company Betafoam Rebuilt Itself From The Ashes with The Help of This Energy Expert

  How does one rebuild from literal ashes? You do it with strength, character, a lot of optimism, and the right partners. For Betafoam Corporation, an insulation and packaging company located in Dasmariñas, Cavite, this holds true. During the pandemic, Betafoam increased its operations for products that saw higher demand, including packaging for essential goods and logistics companies, bubble wrap, and plastic sheets. Betafoam Corporation has been manufacturing insulation and specialized packaging since 2003. In 2014, Betafoam was on its eleventh year in manufacturing polyethylene (PE) foam when its two-building facility in Dasmariñas Technopark, Cavite was decimated by a fire. “Our entire factory got burned.

Better shopping experience with Go Shopping Philippines

  The COVID-19 pandemic totally changed the way Filipinos shop or make purchases. When before it was about taking a trip to the nearest mall or department store, the idea of being struck by an unseen virus drove fear into the hearts of many Filipinos. Good thing that merchants stepped up and went digital to provide services to customers who can’t go out. By going online, many existing and aspiring small businesses were able to survive and provide for the shopping needs of Filipinos. But shopping purely online has its own share of problems, like fake items, miscommunication on product specifications, late deliveries and worse, getting a product that’s not what was ordered. The birth of Go Shopping Philippines These scenarios struck a chord on Neil La-as, Chief Executive Officer of Go Shopping Philippines, so he decided to establish a shopping platform that will make every Filipino’s shopping experience truly exceptional and satisfying. “When I came up with the Go Shopping Philippines co
