But how did start?
A Look at UGC’s history
We first began as the Union Steel Plant Division of Bacnotan Cement Industries, Inc., a pioneer in the cement industry. Commercial operations started in 1963 through a galvanizing plant in Poro, La Union. We manufactured Galvanized Iron (GI) sheets and eventually expanded to Ilang, Davao City in 1968 and to Calamba, Laguna in 1990.
In 1993, the steel plant was separated from Bacnotan to become its own business unit, and incorporated as Bacnotan Steel Corporation. Later on, we were renamed Union Galvasteel Corporation (UGC).
UGC formally began in 1997 by establishing a modern Continuous Galvanizing Line and Color Coating Line for the manufacture of prepainted galvanized steel coils in Calamba, Laguna. The company quickly became the pioneer roofing contractor in the Philippines.
UGC’s Growth throughout the Years
Over the years, we became the market leader in the manufacturing and distribution of prepainted and other galvanized roofing products. We also became leaders in the manufacturing and distribution of galvanized steel building products, including building system components like steel deckings, c-purlins, door jambs, steel trusses, pre-engineered building structures (PEBS), and insulated panels for commercial, industrial, and residential applications.
UGC has also expanded to have the largest and most diversified distribution network in the industry. We now have roll-forming plants, warehouses, and sales offices in strategic locations across the country.
As a top roofing manufacturer in the Philippines, we help build commercial and industrial projects, which include manufacturing plants, warehouses, and even shopping malls. Our residential projects include subdivisions, apartments, condominiums, and houses. We are also known for agricultural projects, namely in the construction of poultry facilities, piggeries, farms, and storage facilities. We also help with wider community projects by helping build churches, mass housing facilities, and covered courts.
