1999

In line with its strategy to further improve the quality, affordability and availability of its raw materials, Colorsteel began to establish business relations with word-class foreign suppliers of prepainted coils.

 

2008-2009
The effects of globalization were evident in the supply chain of Colorsteel as it approached almost 100% imported raw materials of word-class quality and competitiveness that could deliver more benefits to its customers.

Rollforming operation was established in Iloilo in 2008 to further solidify its presence in Panay and Negros areas.

2009 also marked the establishment of warehouse operations in Davao City to cover part of the vast area of Mindanao. Likewise, a sales office was opened in Cavite area.

The Future
Bigger challenges lie ahead in the steel roofing industry and Colorsteel still has a deeper challenge of establishing itself as “The Steel Institution” within the next ten years.          

As its guiding philosophy states, Colorsteel will always continue to work harder to fulfill its commitment to its customers, suppliers, employees and stockholders.
