Pacific Traders & Manufacturing Corporation has been producing quality furniture for more than 40 years.
Founded in August 23, 1973 by Hugo C. Streegan Jr., Pacific Traders started as traders and exporting rattan poles to the production of timeless furniture pieces.
Pacific Traders exports primarily to the Middle East, Japan, South America, Australia, United States and Italy.
The company has also partnered Arte Vivo in Dubai and Curate in North America to expand its market.
With over 1000 employees in Mandaue City, Cebu, Pacific Traders has manufactured furniture such as wrought iron, outdoor – using resin weave, wood, rattan and wicker.
The company also produces veneer wall panels in wood and marquetry, and accessories were added to our furniture line to enhance the collection.
Doing Business with Passion
Pacific Traders is a Filipino family business committed to delivering quality furniture to their customers.
Now managed by the second generation of Streegans, Pacific Traders continues to develop their company culture in the relentless pursuit of excellence.
As explained by Ms. Bernice Streegan-Montenegro, Design Director of the company, the success of the company is rooted in their family legacy and love for the industry.
“The legacy handed by our father is passion and commitment to our business. To achieve our goals we constantly innovate to grow and address market needs,” she says.
Enhancing Business Operations
The transfer of some furniture models to Indonesia came about as a result of high power cost, labor and materials in the Philippines.
In spite of this move, Pacific Traders continues to upgrade the skills of its workers and machinery in Cebu.
However, the move to Indonesia was inevitable due to the manufacturing costs in the Philippines.
Pacific Traders works very hard to keep a presence in the Philippines.
“We are proud in the creativity and capabilities of our fellow countrymen. We hope our government will support the furniture industry because it is now considered a sunset industry,” Ms. Streegan-Montenegro says.
