Bahrain Foam Factory showcases new products
Manama, February 5, 2014
Bahrain Foam Factory (BFF), a major manufacturer of polyurethane foam used mainly in the furniture and bedding industries, is showcasing its sofa bed and new bean bag at the Gulf Industry Fair in Bahrain.
The sofa bed is an all-purpose model that can be folded into a seat or opened out into a mattress. “It can be used outdoors especially on desert trips,” said Varghese Karakkal, group finance manager of J A Zayani and Sons, part of which is BFF.
People should be more aware of what goes into making the mattresses as they spend one-third of their lifetime in bed, BFF believes. “What mostly concerns people is the price of the bed and not what goes into it. There is just more to it than what meets the eye,” he said.
BFF is a 30-year-old company and its products are widely used by furniture manufacturers for sofa sets, Arabic seating and other household furniture where foam is used. It also produces beds with coils and latex mattresses.
It can produce foam in various densities -- soft to hard, depending on the requirement. Size is also no issue for BFF, said Karakkal. “We make custom-built sizes. So if there is an odd room, we can make a mattress for it as well.”
BFF has been a regular participant at the Gulf Industry Fair since the inception of the event seven years ago and being a Bahraini company, it takes keen interest in the show that promotes Bahrain’s industries. “We basically want to showcase ourselves, create brand awareness and show visitors what we have to offer as a local manufacturing company for bedding,” said Karakkal.
BFF markets its products either directly or through a large network of distributors.
