Aboitiz Construction, Inc. (ACI) has signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with MetroPac Movers, Inc. (MMI) to master plan, design, and construct the South Mega Distribution Center, a modern logistics hub that will rise on a stretch of land in General Trias, Cavite.
The construction arm of the Aboitiz & Company has clinched a deal with Metro Pacific-led MMI to build one of the largest storage and distribution hubs in the country. Initially, ACI will prepare the master plan and basic design for the development of the massive logistics facility that sprawls over 20 hectares.
ACI President and COO Albert A. Ignacio, Jr. is looking forward to building the logistics hub as a demonstration of the company’s capability to fully develop large-scale infrastructure projects.
This bolsters ACI’s growing expertise in engineering and design complementing the company’s transformation from metal works and fabrication capability into full-scale engineering, design, and construction expertise.

South Mega DC is the first of a series of logistics infrastructure that ACI will build for MMI. Once completed, the logistics infrastructure will advance business and communities as it facilitates the movement of products and goods nationwide, stimulate local economic activity, and provide thousands of jobs in South Luzon.
MMI has also engaged the services of DCCD Engineering Corporation as Project Manager for the project.
Earlier this year, ACI was awarded a PHP206-million contract to design and construct the transmission project of Lima EnerZone.
ACI, together with its international arm, Aboitiz Construction International, Inc., is the construction arm of Aboitiz and Co., with a 43-year track record in delivering quality, safe, reliable and on time projects for its various local and international customers in the power, mining, cement, shipbuilding, housing and commercial, and manufacturing industries.
