At 55th year, Uratex brings honor to Philippines with new Guinness World Record
MANILA, Philippines — Marking its 55th year in the business, Uratex Philippines’ anniversary celebration not only has brought joy to the company, its people and supported charities, but also pride to the Filipino nation.
The homegrown brand successfully beat Brazil’s Guinness World Record (GWR) of the largest Human Mattress Dominoes in its first attempt to break the prestigious title held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City on October 22.
Thousands had witnessed the historic event live—both in-person and online—showing the nerve-wracking scene of the first person in line falling backwards with the top-selling Uratex Classic Mattress that touched the second person, thus creating a continuous domino topple until the end of the line for 14 minutes and 25 seconds.
After deliberations of the GWR judge and stewards, thunderous cheers and applause from the participants and guests filled the venue, together with the virtual spectators, as the final results were announced.
Upon her declaration of the firm’s victorious try to outdo the previous record with 2,355 people, GWR senior records manager/official adjudicator Mai McMillan then presented the GWR certificate to Uratex Philippines CEO and president Naty Cheng joined on stage by the company’s top executives and Kapamilya actress Kathryn Bernardo.
Just like the record-breaking world-class brand, the box-office queen, with her latest top-grossing film A Very Good Girl, was introduced during the event as the newest ambassadress for the Uratex Classic Line.
The 2,355 human mattress dominoes registered in GWR have a deeper meaning to the company’s existence. The first two numbers, 2 and 3, were derived from the year 2023, while the last two digits, 5 and 5, stood for Uratex’s 55 years of providing quality mattresses, foams and sleep solutions to Filipinos.
Not only inching up but further surpassing the previous world record, the Philippines, via Uratex, outperformed the 2,019 human mattress dominoes performed by Brazil in 2019.
“I would like to congratulate all of us for breaking the Guinness record for the largest human mattress dominoes. Uratex has always striven to be a world-class company. What a fitting way to
