When we say we are out there, we mean it. Many times we have heard from Filipinos, "You're building way out there in the villages of Bicol? Why?" From a business perspective, the logistics are tough. We have to transport literally tons of equipment and product over small, often unpaved roads many kilometers away.
The government officials in the area have taken notice of what we are doing. They see the hope and economic benefit that we bring to the community. We gave them a good reason to improve the roads into and around our province. Now, our big trucks can transport easier, especially in rainy times. The road in front of our plant went from dirt to pavement. We are paving the way for other businesses to join us in being "out there."
