What's Important to Us
Here in First Philec, we believe that if not for the right people, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Over and above each individual employee’s hardwork are the common qualities that binds us together, and makes each of us uniquely First Philec. At First Philec, we strive to embody four major leadership traits: Adaptable, Committed, Driven and Collaborative (ACDC).
Aside from ACDC, we also look for people with double PHDs. No, not doctorate degrees, but people who are Purposeful and Passionate, Hungry yet Humble, Driven and Determined. We know that these characteristics are what sets an individual apart from the rest.

My Journey in First Philec
MARK JOSEPH MANALO
Lead of Materials and Suppliers Development
Employee since 2012
“In my 10 years of experience in First Philec, I witnessed the numerous improvements of all the processes in the company that lead to the increase of the monthly output by 10 times. This is one of the reasons why I am still here and I believe that the business of First Philec will continue to grow.
There are lots of opportunities from other companies that came to me but God led me to the best. He led me to the company that will give me the best experience. As our President always told me, the best training that he can give to me is EXPERIENCE. First Philec exposed me to different areas of the business to develop and enhance my techno-commercial skills. It is my honor and pride to be in a position of New Materials and Suppliers Development Lead. This gives me exposure to connect with different suppliers around the world and be able to strengthen our sources of raw materials to support our growing demand for transformers. Most importantly, I was able to influence our suppliers and partners on the Regenerative and Sustainability initiatives that we are doing right now to protect Mother Earth. Our mission is to protect our environment while doing the business!
My journey here in First Philec is literally life-changing. First Philec continues to provide the best experiences in my career as an Engineer and as a professional. First Philec not only helped me professionally but also became my partner in improving the life of my family. I was able to renovate our home, from nipa hut to concrete. I was able to support my siblings to become Engineers as well and most importantly, I was able to help and share my blessings with those in need, especially our loved ones.”
My FPI Journey
Lead of Digital Business Development
Employee since 2013
"My journey at First Philec has taught me more than I could have ever imagined. I joined as a Cadet Engineer in the Product Design Department way back April 2013 and have grown ever since under great mentorship and leadership. I was able to experience working with different leaders under different departments that helped me reach where I am right now.
Currently, I am the Lead of the Digital Business Development spearheading the development of digital products and solutions of the company. As an advocate of renewable energy and digital technologies, my position today is aligned with my long-term career goal. What made me part of the company for a long period of time is the vision, mission and culture. First Philec is a place that will help you grow your career, improve your livelihood and be there with you through thick and thin. All in all, I have a phenomenal working experience here and this company has given me a lot of opportunities to challenge my potential and be better every day. I am proud to be part of First Philec, a Filipino owned company working to improve lives."

First Philec is a company that values its employees and provides equal opportunity to each and every member of the community. We practice embracing diversity in our workplace and we commend the people behind our success. Hear from one of our employees about what it is like to work for us.
"I am Charles Quilao and I’ve been working here in First Philec Inc. for a year now.
I am very thankful that I have colleagues that understand my disability and also my superior who has been helpful and understanding from the start. I am deeply honored and happy to be part of this company because they are supportive and kind to persons like me despite my disability which is being deaf.
Every day of my life in FPI is enjoyable because I am challenged with different tasks and responsibilities. I remember how happy I am in teaching them how to perform different sign language for basic Alphabet.
Since the pandemic was unexpected, and it was my first time working, I admit that there were times that I have a hard time to understand what they were asking me to do through chat, but somehow I manage to finish it because of their guidance and support. I appreciate that my superior considers me as our department’s “voice” to our proponents as I am tasked to answer the suppliers’ queries and concerns thru emails.
Again, thank you First Philec for the opportunity to be part of this family."
We're growing and we want YOU to be a part of it!
