Aside from developing products that would leave a mark on their customers, Mariwasa has a plan to revamp its trend of automation and technology and upgrade its manufacturing line to come up with high-definition tiles, donning realistic textures and showcasing distinct designs.
To this extent, they created the Mariwasa 4.0 to showcase their new set of products that embody “digital innovation and connectivity” that were made from a new trend of “automation and technology” to satisfy and surpass their customers’ expectations, according to Mariwasa President Jakkrit Suwansilp.
Mariwasa 4.0 will be the company’s theme to this year’s Philippine World Building and Construction Exposition(WORLDBEX) on March 13 to 17 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City where they will launch 106 new tile designs that display timeless, elegant yet natural-looking creations that will cater to every buyer’s unique and preferred tastes.
These designs were inspired by three different concepts—Revitality, Technique, and Wanderwall that Mariwasa’s designers created as they explored different places in the country and abroad to discover new ideas and trends, with an influence of contemporary features to incorporate in their tiles.
Revitality tiles exhibit timeless designs with relaxing and therapeutic touch, Technique tiles give off a mix of cultural vibe and modern feeling, and Wanderwall tiles display an elegant ambiance that offer a more luxurious look. These tiles will be available in a 20×20, 20×30, 30×30, 30×60, 40×40, 60×60 sizes.
The latest innovation expected to grab the spotlight is the R11 stone effect, an innovated Mariwasa tile that features a glossy surface but has an anti-slip function. With its relentless pursuit of innovation as evident in innovative products and features such as the R11 stone effect.
“The R11 stone effect proves the company’s commitment in bringing innovative designs each year. We guarantee our customers can look forward to new, innovative and high-quality designs and products that will last,” said Suwansilp.
Mariwasa will also be launching its newest product addition, the Mariwasa Sanitary Wares that will let Filipino homeowners decide to choose practical and affordable yet stylish and high-quality home products.
“As a solution provider we thought of bringing Mariwasa Sanitary Wares beyond our product portfolio. Our inspiration is to provide Filipino customers bathroom solutions with more practical choices that do not compromise quality and style,” said Suwansilp.
In addition, Mariwasa will also be offering the Luxurio Porcelain Tiles that deliver the latest and in-demand quality of porcelain tile to the consumers and can be bought in prominent home depots and tile stores in the country.
To bring convenience to their customers and to promote its image, Mariwasa also launched its new face last year with the name “TYLER,” the professional tile installer.
Through him, customers can ask their questions and concerns about Mariwasa tiles and even how to properly install them. Tyler will also give suggestions and recommendations to help address their customers’ problems.
“The primary difference of Mariwasa is we take priority on our after-sales service; this is also the reason why we launched Tyler the professional tile installer to communicate better to our customer’s concern. We created Tyler’s hotline and e-mail to answer customer’s queries immediately.
