With the desire to improve the Philippine landscape, Johnny Cobankiat brings high quality but affordable home improvement solutions to the country. He is currently the President of the biggest hardware store chain in the Philippines, ACE Hardware and CBK Hardware. The birth of this hardware chain is built on his father’s mission to improve the lives of the Filipinos. Their mission is not to gain profits but to help the Filipinos develop their dreams.

To achieve this mission, they bring world-class hardware and building material brands in the Philippines. The launching of ACE Hardware and CBK Hardware in the country is a fulfillment of Cobankiat’s quest to improve the quality standards of residential houses, hotels, commercial, industrial, and office buildings. With the availability of premium home solution products and superior hardware brands, the Filipinos will bag loads of benefits from it.


Buying high-quality products is one way to save money for home or office building expenses. It means saving more cost in the long run because these products can last longer compared to other cheap building materials. For instance, an inexpensive doorknob will quickly get damaged after a year, but buying Baldwin door locks from CBK Hardware will last for more than 20 years. Since the item remains in good quality for years, there is no need to buy a new one which is very economical. Although branded products are more expensive, which means they need to spend a considerable amount upfront, the savings far greater.

Filipinos value everything that they worked hard for. They consider this as a treasure that they can handover to their children. Because of this, it is crucial for them to retain the excellent quality of their house, so it is still structurally stable and architecturally appealing. Using products that are durable and long-lasting that can withstand time and usage make this possible. Cheap home improvement products can only last for a few months, but branded ones can be used for ten years or more.

The Philippine culture of strong family ties manifest how much the Filipinos value every family member. Hence, they want everyone to be safe, especially when at home since many believe that the house will shelter from harm. Ensuring the quality of products used in residential and office buildings is parallel to its safety. Products with low-quality tend to result in accidents and injuries like how a cheap ceiling fan may ignite a fire once the motor overheats. A number of unfortunate cases involving mediocre items have been reported. And we do not want this to happen to anyone again since this may risk and endanger lives.

Yes, gone are the days when the Filipinos are left with no option but to purchase cheap and low-quality products for their home and office building needs. This makes Cobankiat a hero for saving the Filipinos from merely settling with inferior hardware supply and home improvement solutions.
