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.
