ABOITIZ & CO. - 100 YEARS
OF ADVANCING BUSINESS AND COMMUNITIES
The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) issues a stamp
commemorating the centennial anniversary of Aboitiz & Company (ACO),
entitled "100 Years of Advancing Business and Communities".
The groundwork for the Aboitiz Group was first laid out by Paulino
Aboitiz in the fertile lands of Ormoc, Leyte during the tail end of
the 1800s. Dealing in abaca, then general merchandise, Aboitiz next
ventured into shipping, but it was only in 1920 that "Aboitiz y
Compania" became a fully incorporated company in Cebu, with a
foothold in diverse industries within and outside the modernizing
economy of Visayas
Aboitiz & Company's contribution to nation-building - through
participation in key industries such as navigation, light and power,
finance and real estate - is parallel to its growth and expansion.
With the leadership of five generations founded on trust, fairness,
integrity, and quality, within a century, Aboitiz had manifested
into reputably one of the best-managed companies in the region. This
2020, Aboitiz & Co, celebrates a century of adaptive business that
supports community development.
The commemorative stamp and souvenir sheet prominently feature the
Aboitiz & Company’s centennial logotype and its trademark colors.
Underneath is the phrase "100 Years of Advancing Business and
Communities", a tribute to a legacy of excellence and a promise to
be earnestly fulfilled in the next coming century.
