On its founding on 1979, Du Ek Sam, Inc. primarily engaged in copra trading until it expanded into hardware retailing. During the Marcos years, a big blow fell on the coconut industry when the government decided to regulate and control the coconut industry of the country causing the business to close. The family had to divert to another business venture. This hatched the decision to abandon copra trading and convert to appliance and motorcycle retail that required a hefty startup. On June 26, 1979 the appliance and motorcycle business was officially birthed as DU EK SAM, INC. – in honor of the Chinese name of the family patriarch Samuel Du. The principal office was located at Jagna, Bohol. Fast forward to today, the company sells motorcycle, appliance, furniture, power products and spareparts. We are now growing to 282 branches and still counting. Our branches are strategically located at key areas in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Du Ek Sam, Inc. envisions itself to be the nation’s top player in motorcycle and appliance industry. It shall be guided by the high standards of retail business with the aim of providing excellent consumer products and quality services for the utmost satisfaction of its clientele.
