DOST officials visit SETUP Project in Cagayan Valley

SETUP Project in Cagayan Valley

THE Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary, Dr. Renato U. Solidum Jr., with other DOST officials, visited Agricomp Machineries and Construction Corp.. (AMCC).

The company is one of the DOST Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises or MSMEs in Cagayan Valley.

SETUP assistance created other opportunities for AMCC, like the acquisition of a merchandise strip to the Equipment Manufacturing Cluster (EMC) Region 02, an organization for metal equipment manufacturers in the Cagayan Valley Region, and the Metals International Association of the Philippines (MIAP).

Some of the materials being used by the corporation came from other members of EMC. These materials are fabricated and chosen by local and international enterprises, including local start-up businesses.

New possibilities have been realized since another launch of its production center was established. This additional center only signified that AMCC continued to soar even higher this time. In addition, AMCC is also equipped with a stable financial status and knowledgeable technical staff.

With the help of DOST-SETUP, the firm’s productivity increased, resulting in an improvement in gross sales. This has enabled them to offer more high-value products with longer lengths and bigger sizes due to their cutting-edge machines.

The firm also generated jobs, which improved its market reach all over the Philippines. Solidum underscored the need to advance their technological engagements and transform their processes, which will nurture a sustainable economy and society for Filipinos.

He encouraged the firm to venture into censor-based machines to enhance their productivity and competitiveness through the integration of advanced technologies.
