UNION GALVASTEEL CORPORATION (UGC) started as the Union Steel Plant Division of BACNOTAN CEMENT INDUSTRIES, INC. (Bacnotan), a pioneer in the Philippine Cement Industry and commenced commercial operations in 1963 with a galvanizing plant in Poro, San Fernando, La Union for the manufacture of Galvanized Iron (GI) sheets. It subsequently expanded operations with galvanizing plants in Ilang, Davao City in 1968 and in Calamba, Laguna in 1990. The division was spun off in 1993 as a separate business unit and incorporated as BACNOTAN STEEL CORPORATION. The company in 1995 established a modern Continuous Galvanizing Line and a Color Coating Line for the manufacture of prepainted galvanized steel coils in Calamba, Laguna.
In June 2000, the company was renamed UNION GALVASTEEL CORPORATION, a name that identifies its core business and brings Union Galvasteel as a leading brand of galvanized and prepainted steel roofing products in the market.
Today, UNION GALVASTEEL CORPORATION is the market leader in the manufacture and distribution of prepainted galvanized roofing and other galvanized roofing and other galvanized steel products such as steel decking, building systems’ components and insulated panels for commercial, industrial, and residential applications. The company has the largest and most diversified distribution network in the industry, with rollforming plants, warehouses and sales offices in strategic locations throughout the country.
The company is owned by PHINMA CORPORATION, a highly diversified holding company with interests in enterprises involved in housing, steel roofing products, energy, education, and business process outsourcing.
PHINMA was founded in 1956 by a group of prominent businessmen and industrialists led by Amb. Ramon V. del Rosario, Sr., Don Filemon C. Rodriguez, and Mr. Ernesto O. Escaler.
