PICMW’s history dates back to 1934 when Meneleo Carlos Sr. established a small company called Philight Incorporated. In 1955, it entered into equipment fabrication and together with the engineers of Resins Incorporated assisted in the design and construction of its chemical facilities. In 1969 Resins Inc. ventured into Mindanao. Realizing the potential growth of the region, PICMW also established its facilities in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental, Mindanao. During this time, the company ventured into ship building as a pioneer shipbuilder. It expanded its capabilities through the years, not only in shipbuilding and ship repair, but also in steel fabrication and erection. Today, PICMW’s shipyard in Mindanao operates the only syncrolift dry dock facility with a side transfer rail system in the country.





Marine Works

The company ventured into the shipbuilding industry in 1972 and was registered with the Board of Investment as a pioneer shipbuilding. From 1976 up to 1979, Japanese technicians were hired in cooperation with Mitsui Ocean Development Company (MODEC), and Kanrei Shipyard to upgrade the skills of PICMW workers in mold-lofting, fabrication, erection and machinery installation. During this period, seven self-propelled vessels were constructed, financed by the World Bank and classed to American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

In 1990, German consultants in cooperation with MARINA conducted welding seminars and on-the-job training for our welders in Jasaan. In 1993, PICMW was chosen as one of the recipients of a training program sponsored by the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) in cooperation with the Norwegian firm, SHIPDECO A/S. SHIPDECO introduced innovative systems to improve the ship building and ship repair capabilities of PICMW.
