Davao City on Target for Industrialization in Five Years


Steel Asia Philippines to build a steel plant in Davao City.

Do a 25 billion peso coal power plant and a 4.6 billion peso steel plant say anything to you? These big investments are huge that I can’t even fathom how high Davao can go. The idea of Davao to supply power and steel to the rest of Mindanao screams economic growth for the city.

Davao Will Supply Steel for the rest of Mindanao

“Steel is one of the foundations of national development. With this steel plant, Davao City not only would have the honor of having the only reinforced steel bar rolling mill plant in Mindanao, but also be able to play a bigger role in the development and progress of the island,” the committee report said. read more

    LEADING budget hotel brand Tune Hotels will open its branch in Davao City in the second quarter of next year as it expands its operations outside of Luzon and Visayas.

    Tune Hotels country head Ann Olalo said they have started the ground works for the construction of the nine-story Tune Hotel Davao along J.P. Laurel Avenue, just near Mana Davao and a good 15-minute drive from the Davao International Airport.

    Olalo, in an interview with Davao City journalists in Angeles City Wednesday morning, said Tune Hotel Davao will have a total of 147 rooms.

    Olalo said they will be constructing basically almost the same hotel that Tune Hotels opened along Don Juico Avenue in Angeles, Pampanga last month.

    After Angeles, Tune Hotels had also opened its Cebu and Manila branches. The Angeles branch has 165 rooms while those in Cebu and Manila have 150 and 167 rooms, respectively.

    Aside from the Davao branch, three more hotels will be opened by Tune Hotels in 2013. One will be constructed in Ortigas, one in Quezon City and the other in Cagayan de Oro.

    Tune Hotels is an international hotel brand designed to provide customers more value for money as they travel across the world. It currently has hotel operations in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and London, which includes the newly launched Tune Hotel in Liverpool Street that opened in January of this year.

    More of the Tune Hotels will open its doors in Southeast Asia and the UK in 2013, while India and Australia welcome their first Tune Hotels also that year.

    Tune Hotels is owned and operated by Red Planet Hotels Limited (RPHL), a privately-owned regional hotel investment company focused on Asia’s emerging markets.

    It was in 2010 when the company partnered with Tune Hotels and developed a portfolio of budget hotels spanning China, Indonesia, Thailand, Bangladesh and the Philippines

    Beverage-maker Pepsi Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI) has set aside about P3.22 billion this year to put up a new bottling line in northern Luzon and boost its product distribution network across the country.

    The new bottling plant will deliver additional seven million cases. It will be put up in the existing plant in Rosario, La Union, and will produce both carbonated and non-carbonated drinks. This project alone will cost P500 million.

    PCPPI also recently tripled the production capacity of its bottling plant in Zamboanga City with the completion of a P500-million expansion and systems upgrade project.

    PCPPI senior vice president for technical operations Daniel Gregorio Jr. said the project—which involves the installation of a state-of-the-art bottling line, new water treatment and filtration system, and added inventory of containers— had substantially increased PCPPI’s presence in the region.

    This new line in Zamboanga will translate to additional 8 million of cases in production yearly.

    “This sophisticated bottling line, which is capable of producing carbonated soft drinks in returnable glass, will triple the company’s production capacity and enable it to provide stable supply of Pepsi products to the provinces of Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga Sibugay, Zamboanga del Sur and the islands of Basilan, Jolo, Tawi-Tawi and Bongao,” Gregorio said.

    PCPPI’s continuing investments in Mindanao manifested the company’s solid confidence in the entire southern Philippines, Gregorio added.

    Earlier this year, PCPPI commissioned its P500-million bottling line in Cagayan de Oro City. It also purchased a prime lot in Davao City for further production capacity expansion program.

    The construction of the new bottling facilities at the Pepsi plant in Barangay (village) Mercedez, Zamboanga City, started in August 2011 and was completed last month, bringing to two Pepsi’s bottling facilities in Western Mindanao.

    The company reported that over the last 30 years, Pepsi has considerably helped heighten commercial activities in southern Philippines, including job generation and creation of new business opportunities for the downstream industries such as trucking, sugar farming, groceries and other retail establishments.
