Manila Bay Hosiery Mills, Inc. (MBHMI) is the pioneer in the hosiery industry in the Philippines. Established in 1955, we operated one of the biggest and most modern manufacturing facilities in the Philippines. We are the licensed manufacturer of the famous US brand – GOLD TOE® since 1968. We are also the proud owner and manufacturer of the popular PRESIDENT ® brand.
Our brands are in almost all of the leading department stores in the country. With its expertise and production capacity, Manila Bay Hosiery Mills, Inc. also manufactured socks for brands such as Adidas, Guess, Arrow, Brooks, Accel, Onesimus, Greg Norman, First Quadrant, and Kids Sport. For schools like La Salle Greenhills, Miriam College, Xavier School, and St. Theresa’s College, and for institutions like the Armed Forces of the Philippines ( AFP), Boy Scout of the Philippines, Girl Scout of the Philippines, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and Sisters of Mary.
MBHMI serve both the local and international market. We manufactured socks for US and UK brands such as Nike, Esprit, Marks & Spencer, Limited, Sarah B Studio, Candies, C & A, and others. We exported our high quality socks to these high-end brands.
In 2004, during a GOLD TOE® Brands, Inc. Sales Conference in China, MBHMI had the chance to visit one of the world’s biggest and most modern hosiery manufacturer. GOLD TOE® Brands, Inc, then established a manufacturing facility in China supplying majority of its goods for the US market. This paved the way for MBHMI to have access to modern designs and high-tech GOLD TOE® products such as All PRO.
During the last quarter of 2006 the MBHMI board of directors decided to cease manufacturing operations in the Philippines. By 2007, MBHMI’s products were all imported from China. Today, with a bigger production capacity, improved technical expertise, high-tech machineries, better design ideas and a wider source of raw materials, MBHMI is closer to its goal of being the leader in the hosiery industry for many years to come.
