For her part, COHCI Brand Development Manager Maria Cyrina Pascual added, “The brands we carry share our commitment of bringing impressive designs and tools for home improvement or commercial space renovation but also to deliver products at the right price that meet global standards.”
Interestingly, one of the highlighted products from Cebu Oversea Hardware Co., Inc. at the WORLDBEX 2019 is the BALDOCER big size porcelain tiles and EL MOLINO family heritage tiles and its own LUXE premium tile collection.
The company’s own in house LUXE brand is the end product of collaboration with Italian designers and selected Asian factories to develop top-quality, artistic tiles.
CAPUCINO, and STUDIO are also exclusive brand collection featuring a wide range of simple and minimalist designs that capture the preservation of human space—be it for home or commercial use.

COHCI WORLDBEX exhibit also features a collection of tiles from a range of other premium brands they carry, namely Argenta, Alaplana, and Cicogres. The collection highlights floor and wall tiles with Spanish designs, and comes in 60×60, 31×60, 14.5×89.5, 15×90, 23×120, 20×110, 40×120, 25×92, 30×90 and 22.5×90 variants.
Unlike other tiles available in the market, COHCI explained that all the brands that they carry would never go out of style and quality. It’s an integration of arts in a simple ceramics.
This was explained to THEPHILBIZNEWS during the sideline interview with BALDOCER’s Area Manager Oscar Vilar, whose company is based in Spain when he said, “Many just put chemical to make the tiles look good and apart from the fact that tiles are porous. And when it’s porous, it easily gets broken and most of the time, they have to put something on the top to make the tiles look shiny. With the tiles that COHCI carries, all of them are quality and the designs are impressive.”
“But what COHCI tiles offer is not just quality, but also the sophistication of arts in every tile”, he said in closing.
Apart from the quality and new designed tiles, Cebu Oversea Hardware Co., Inc. also launched COOL Bath System’s new generation of intelligent toilets and bathroom products for 2019. And bathroom being the most important part of the home because it demands to be always clean and fresh, the COOL Bath System’s Integrated Intelligent Toilet innovation (INTELLET) would provide that comfort and convenience to every home.
With its strong brand commitment of delivering a better bathroom experience, Cool Brand Manager. Lyn Sinconiegue gladly shared what customers can expect from this state-of-the-art and reasonably priced intelligent toilets, The Foss and Newton INTELLET.
These sophisticated but not complicated toilets are equipped with auto flush and pre-flush smart features, wireless remote control, heated seat and cover and deodorizer, comparable to the exorbitantly priced toilet.
