Megawide Construction Corporation, through its Precast Unit, recently opened its second precast plant in Taytay, Rizal.
The plant will increase the company’s overall precast production capacity as it vies for more infrastructure projects, and will beef up the supply-and-build capabilities of the unit.
The plant can produce over 35,000 cubic meters of precast annually, adding to Megawide’s current production capacity of 96,000 cubic meters, making it the leading Precast manufacturer in the country.
“This new Precast facility is designed to produce half-slab products allowing our main plant to focus more on customized and new products,” said Megawide Executive Vice-President for Business Units Markus Hennig.
Half-slabs are a basic precast component used for flooring as well as horizontal infrastructure, such as roads and railways (inset photo).
Megawide has participated in the bid for other rail packages and is also in different stages of discussion with several parties to expand its transport-centric developments, which include the country’s first landport, the Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX).
