DTI cites AG&P for role in overseas manpower services
Philippine-based AG&P (Atlantic, Gulf & Pacific Co.), the leading LNG and infrastructure solutions provider, received the “Outstanding Global Player Award” from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) last week.
The Philippine Overseas Construction Board (POCB), an agency attached to the DTI, selected AG&P in recognition of its outstanding performance and contribution to the export sector through its overseas manpower deployment services.
AG&P has deployed thousands of highly skilled Filipino teams to worksites globally, including Angola, Russia, Nigeria, Iraq, Kazakhstan and Australia to execute turnkey scopes of work across oil and gas, power, mining, water, civil and industrial sectors. AG&P’s craftsmen and professionals—welders, mechanical technicians, scaffolders, riggers, pipe and structural fitters, electrical and instrumentation technicians, painters, supervisors, quality control engineers and project managers—are trained to adhere to international standards and specifications, with the highest regard for safety and quality, making them the most sought-after resource worldwide.
“We are very grateful to DTI and POCB for honoring us with this prestigious award. Among the most productive workforce, our Filipino craftsmen, technicians and professionals offer the best cross-section of value and talent anywhere in the world. We receive this award with the commitment that we will continue to deliver world-leading safety and quality standards and make the Philippine flag fly high,” said AG&P vice president Roberto Paglinawan.
AG&P president Albert D. Altura accepted the award from DTI for the company’s outstanding contribution to overseas manpower services. Present during the awarding were DTI director Senen Perlada, Philexport president Sergio R. Ortiz-Luis, Jr., AG&P’s Paglinawan and marketing and communications manager Amaya Legarda, and DTI Undersecretary Nora K. Terrado.
