Who is Latexco?

Latexco is a family business that has been developing latex and technical PU foams for the bedding industry for over 60 years. Latexco has come a long way in that time, starting from a small family business in Tielt, Belgium, to become a business with a global presence. Today we employ over 600 people worldwide. The entrepreneurial spirit from the early days has never disappeared. We’ve grown, and we’ve grown up. Our organization has evolved and professionalized accordingly.

Throughout our international expansion, we’ve always remained true to ourselves. At Latexco, we always cherish the same core values: respect, commitment and trust. And this is translated into respect for people and the environment, personal service, superior quality products and innovative solutions for every one of our customers. Each and every day.

Our solid reputation for high-quality latex along with a strong focus on the development of specific technical PU foams enable us to be a one-stop-shop for customized sleeping comfort. Thanks to our worldwide geographic spread we strive to be the preferred partner to design the unique sleeping experience every bedding company around the globe is looking for.

 

Sustainability

Since decades, Latexco has been a pioneer in sustainable business development. Latexco worked hard to minimize the environmental impact of its activities. We were the first in our market to deploy our own water treatment plant, to use 100% green energy in our manufacturing processes and to set up our own recycling company.

In 1955, Sylvain Maes, father of the current owner Luc Maes, founds Latexco. In the early years, Latexco is active in two sectors: the bedding and the furniture industry.

From the 1980s onwards, Latexco starts focusing on the bedding industry. The company manufactures mattress cores, pillows and toppers in latex foam.

To drive its steady growth in the nineties, Latexco invests in a brand-new logistics center. In these years, the company increasingly focuses on sustainability. Latexco speeds up its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. Just before the end of the century, Latexco Solutions is born. This Latexco subsidiary processes industrial residues, including the waste that is inherent to Latexco’s production process.

Latexco consolidates its international expansion and new Latexco facilities open around the world. We inaugurate a manufacturing and distribution unit in Indonesia, as well as the Latexco Asia-Pacific sales office. A few years later, a new production and logistic unit is set up in La Almunia (Zaragoza – Spain) and we launch the Innergetic quality label. ‘Latexco US East’, a production and logistics unit in Lavonia, Georgia, and ‘Latexco US West’, a manufacturing and distribution center in Los Angeles, California (US) follow two years later. In São Paulo, Brazil, we also establish a sales office to cover Latin America.

Latexco keeps innovating and develops the unique and patented SonoCore process in 2011, resulting in the PULSE product line.

To better serve the Scandinavian market, Latexco acquires FIAB, the Scandinavian market leader in latex components. The company currently trades as Latexco Sverige.

Very recently, Latexco decided to invest in producing technical PU foams – the Latexco ‘fom’ range. Following the establishment of a fom unit in the US, in 2013, we also set up a fom unit in Belgium in 2016. Latexco is now a one-stop-shop for comfort in the bedding market.

These days Carole Maes, daughter of Luc Maes, helps steer this fast-growing, global company.
