Who We Are
FIRST PHILEC is the country’s leader in providing electrical distribution equipment and co-created solutions in the Philippines, with over 250,000 installations nationwide. We are a key partner in providing solutions to the pain points of the Transmission and Distribution segment. First Philec has been the preferred brand to the country’s power utilities, commercial and industrial businesses for almost six decades.
A member of the Lopez Group, First Philec is the intermediate holding company of First Philippine Holdings Corporation (FPH) primarily for its manufacturing and technology-related investments. Through First Philec, FPH intends to grow its investments in manufacturing to provide a more robust backbone to the country’s economy—one that is founded on technological competitiveness and increased ability to add value products and services for the global market.
First Philec’s plant is located in First Philippine Industrial Park, Batangas. Its design and manufacturing capability holds up to 667 kVA Distribution Transformers (DTs) and up to 4 MVA for Pad-mounted Transformers (PDTs). Our facility can produce up to 1,500 units of DTs and 40 units of PDTs per month, and has strong testing capabilities. Our manufacturing and technical design pedigree are rooted in the technologies from Hitachi (Japan), General Electric and Cooper Power Systems (USA). With this, First Philec reinforces its position as lead transformer manufacturer in the country.
What We Believe In
We believe that doing good and making economic sense are not mutually exclusive to each other, and so we find opportunities in which we can reduce emissions while maintaining the lowest total owning cost.
We take pride in being the largest amorphous transformer manufacturer in South East Asia where use of one 50 kVA transformer reduces carbon emissions equivalent to more than what 20 acacia trees absorb in a year.
We have been providing the market with highly energy efficient products that are not carbon-intensive, and in fact, help lessen carbon emissions from the grid.
