Aboitiz Construction held its first Vendors’ Night on April 25 at Marco Polo Hotel in Cebu as a way of expressing appreciation for the many years of support extended by suppliers and subcontractors.
The appreciation dinner was attended by 41 suppliers from Visayas and Mindanao, represented by 61 owners and key personnel. A separate appreciation event for Luzon suppliers will be held.
Aboitiz Construction cannot survive for 42 years without the support of valued suppliers and subcontractors. We, therefore, thank our partners for the continued assistance in both bid or tender requirements and in project implementation.
–Alberto Ignacio Jr, President & CEO, Aboitiz Construction
Suppliers getting paid faster than the company collects is proof that we give importance to suppliers,” added Albert which drew laughter among attendees.
To further assist suppliers in transactions with the company, Atty. William Podot, Accounting and Tax Manager, provided input on accounting general guidelines, signatories of purchase orders and rules on invoices.
Felma Yap, VP for Marketing, Sales, and Business Development, introduced the company, which recently obtained approval of its new name of Aboitiz Construction, Inc.
