HONG KONG, Oct. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Madrid-based furniture supplier is investing in Ukraine to prepare for post-war reconstruction and to provide some relief to refugees. Chris Exline and Andriy Smagliuk, the Major of Kremenets, delivered the first 100 mattresses in Kremenets this week, on 5th and 6th October.
Home Essentials has acquired the production capacity of a mattress factory in Kremenets in the Ternopil region of Ukraine and plans to expand manufacturing capability to provide its own brand of quality mattresses to refugees displaced by the war.

The initiative has been welcomed by Ukrainian local authorities, especially the regional government of Ternopil.

“The tremendous strength and resilience shown by the people of Ukraine makes me fully confident of a successful outcome to the conflict for Ukraine in the near future. We are proud to be investing in the country at this time, and we want to do what we can to help channel much needed assistance to those displaced by the war,” said Exline.
