All pieces are designed with care in house and skilled welders create unique pieces in the tradition of fine craftsmanship Pampanga artisans are known for. The company has been able to nurture and maintain good working relationships with international clients because of consistency in the quality of their products and on time delivery. The pandemic has caused the slowing down of production and even cancellation of orders, but things have slowly picked up and they are now back on track. Clients and buyers of BMA exports range from small shops to top importers. They export to the USA, EUROPE, JAPAN and other countries. BMA products can be found in big chain stores like Pottery Barn and TJX.
Their factory is located in Pampanga, one of three major production areas in the Philippines.
