ABOITIZ Power Corporation (AboitizPower) Thermal Group, in partnership with the Aboitiz Foundation and the local government of Maco, Davao de Oro, is set to build a one-storey, two-classroom science laboratory within Maco de Oro College.

“This is a welcome addition to our educational facilities,” said Maco de Oro College President Dr. Anthony Pol P. Fulache. “It is great to see in action the cooperation among our government and private partners to support our students to maximize their learning.”
The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by leaders from AboitizPower Thermal Group, the Aboitiz Foundation, and the local government of Maco led by Mayor Arthur Voltaire Rimando and Vice Mayor Dr. Alvera Veronica Rimando. Maco de Oro College administrators and the Philippine Army 1001st Infantry PAG-ASA Brigade, led by Commander Col. Felix Ronnie Babac, also supported the event.
“We in AboitizPower are thrilled to make this dream possible for Maco De Oro College,” said AboitizPower Thermal Group VisMin President & COO Ronaldo Ramos.
“This is a legacy-defining project, together with our partners, Mayor and Vice Mayor Rimando. What we will do here, the science laboratory, will not just be a one-time benefit, but will benefit a whole generation of people in Maco,” he added.
