CEBU First District Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Gerald An­thony "Sam­sam" Gul­las Jr. vis­ited the man­u­fac­tur­ing plant of Tai­heiyo Ce­ment Philip­pines Inc. (TCPI) as well the min­ing and port oper­a­tions of Solid Earth Devel­op­ment Corp. (SEDC) in San Fer­nando town, south­ern Cebu.

He ex­pressed grat­i­tude for the so­cial devel­op­ment pro­grams done by both com­pa­nies.

TCPI plant man­ager Kazuhiko Ichizawa ac­com­pa­nied Gul­las dur­ing the two-hour visit.

SEDC direc­tor and chief tech­ni­cal ad­viser Hiroyuki Sakak­ibara and TCPI vice pres­i­dent for ad­min­is­tra­tion Shigeki Koide joined as they brought Gul­las to the SEDC lime­stone quarry in Tonggo.

They then led the young con­gress­man to the kiln, cen­tral con­trol room and qual­ity test­ing lab­o­ra­tory at the plant, and later pro- ceeded to the wharf to ob­serve the han­dling of ce­ment bags for dis­tri­bu­tion to var­i­ous points in Lu­zon, Visayas and Min­danao.

Tai­heiyo and SEDC’s so­cial devel­op­ment man­age­ment pro­grams in­cluded liveli­hood projects for barangays South and North Pobla­cion, Magsico, Pan­dataran, Tonggo and Tin­ub­dan, and the con­tin­u­a­tion of train­ings for barangay health work­ers./
