BusinessMirror - - Bulletn Board -

VAR­I­OUS Aboitiz busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties are con­tin­u­ously op­er­at­ing and im­ple­ment­ing health and safety pro­to­cols in the midst of the Coro­n­avirus-19 (Covid-19) pan­demic.

Fol­low­ing a se­ries of site in­spec­tions, Aboitiz Group pres­i­dent and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Sabin M. Aboitiz re­it­er­ated the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to keep its busi­nesses run­ning smoothly to help the coun­try’s econ­omy weather the chal­lenges posed by the health cri­sis.

“Aboitiz is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing un­ham­pered de­liv­ery of prod­ucts and ser­vices across crit­i­cal sec­tors that will help keep our econ­omy mov­ing. We will con­tinue to pro­vide re­li­able and am­ple power sup­ply to the coun­try; en­sure food se­cu­rity along with our part­ners; con­tinue to cre­ate bet­ter ways to live; and en­sure suf­fi­cient and do­mes­ti­cally-pro­duced ce­ment of good qual­ity to sup­port the coun­try’s in­fra­struc­ture ini­tia­tives,” Aboitiz said.

Last Au­gust 14, the Aboitiz Group chief vis­ited Repub­lic Ce­ment and Build­ing Ma­te­ri­als, Inc.’s (Repub­lic Ce­ment) Batan­gas Plant, which boasts of its con­sis­tent high stan­dard in en­vi­ron­men­tal and safety prac­tices. He also toured Aboiti­z­land, Inc.’s Seafront Res­i­dences in San Juan, Batan­gas, its first res­i­den­tial project in Lu­zon.

Team mem­bers on site felt em­pow­ered with the strong lead­er­ship sup­port at this chal­leng­ing time.

A few weeks prior, the Aboitiz chief and a team of Aboitizpow­er se­nior of­fi­cials, in­spected the geo­ther­mal power plant fa­cil­i­ties of Aboitizpow­er Re­new­ables, Inc. (APRI) in Mak­il­ing-bana­haw (Mak­ban) in La­guna and Tiwi, Al­bay. Aboitiz also went around the Pag­bi­lao Ther­mal Power Plant in Que­zon prov­ince to in­spect the 420-megawatt Pag­bi­lao 3 unit op­er­ated by Pag­bi­lao En­ergy Cor­po­ra­tion, a joint ven­ture be­tween Aboitizpow­er and Team En­ergy.

In all these vis­its, Aboitiz noted that these fa­cil­i­ties are con­sci­en­tiously fol­low­ing strict pre-en­try safety re­quire­ments, health screen­ing, and other safety pro­to­cols.

“On top of keep­ing un­ham­pered op­er­a­tions on var­i­ous work sites and busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties, the most im­por­tant thing is en­sur­ing that our team mem­bers es­pe­cially those in the front­lines, those who are keep­ing the lights on, those who are keep­ing the ma­chines run­ning, and those who are build­ing our homes one brick at a time are well taken cared of; that they are healthy, safe and their needs are met,” Aboitiz stressed.

Aboitiz noted that while the health cri­sis has un­doubt­edly cre­ated chal­lenges, it is also paving the way for op­por­tu­ni­ties such as har­ness­ing the full po­ten­tial of in­no­va­tion and ap­ply­ing it in the com­pany’s busi­ness op­er­a­tions.

“We were able to show­case the per­for­mance of the Batan­gas plant, the safety of the plant as well as our prepa­ra­tions on the new nor­mal and how we im­ple­ment it,” shared Repub­lic Ce­ment Batan­gas Plant man­ager Er­win Cruz.

The Repub­lic Ce­ment Batan­gas Plant, lo­cated in Taysan, Batan­gas, has been in op­er­a­tion since 1967. It pro­duces Type 1, Type 1P, and Type 1 OPC (Or­di­nary Port­land Ce­ment) Bulk Ce­ment.

Mean­time at the Seafront Res­i­dences which was launched in 2017, Aboitiz in­spected com­pleted houses and ameni­ties, and fu­ture ar­eas for devel­op­ment. “It was good to be able to high­light our suc­cesses and ini­tia­tives to­wards meet­ing our con­struc­tion goals de­spite the chal­lenges brought about by the pan­demic,” Aboiti­z­land as­sis­tant vice pres­i­dent for Cus­tomer Man­age­ment Mon­ica Tra­jano said.

Aboitiz Group chief Sabin M. Aboitiz in­spected var­i­ous Aboitiz fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure con­tin­u­ous busi­ness op­er­a­tions, es­pe­cially in crit­i­cal sec­tors that help keep the coun­try’s econ­omy mov­ing, and that strict health and safety pro­to­cols are in place. With him at the Repub­lic Ce­ment Batan­gas Plant site visit (pic­tured above) is Repub­lic Ce­ment Pres­i­dent and CEO Na­bil Fran­cis.
