Golden Haven launches first memorial chapels and crematorium in Las Piñas
MANILA, March 3 (PNA) — Listed Golden Haven Memorial Park, Inc. (GHMPI) has launched its first memorial chapel and crematorium complex in Las Piñas City, progressing with its vision to become the first full-service deathcare company in the country.
“Not only does this open a new chapter in the Golden Haven story, this chapel and crematorium opening also creates a new opportunity for us to increase our recurring income prospects,” GHMPI chief operating officer Maribeth Tolentino told the local bourse.
Tolentino said its opening allowed the company to expand its offerings across five segments of the deathcare industry, which are memorial parks, memorial chapels and services, columbariums, deathcare merchandising (caskets, urns and keepsakes), and pre-need planning.
“The chapel we opened is just the first of a chain of memorial chapels that we are looking to open in various locations around the country where we see a growing, yet underserved market for cremation,” said majority shareholder Manuel B. Villar Jr.
With the completion of the Golden Haven Chapel and Crematorium, the Ezekiel Complex in Las Piñas now offers a full range of memorial services, including embalming, cleansing, dressing and cosmetic restoration, chapels, hearse services and stores for the sale of death care products.
GHMPI has developed over 66 hectares of land in eight locations nationwide.
The company was the first firm to be listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange in 2016 and is the first company from the deathcare industry to do so. (PNA)
