First Atkins expands operations in ALLHC’s Cavite Technopark

First Atkins Holdings Corp. (FAHC), a prominent figure in the Philippines’ wholesale and retail meat industry, is significantly expanding its operations by acquiring additional lots within AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corp.’s (ALLHC) Cavite Technopark. This expansion underscores FAHC’s commitment to enhancing its presence in the CALABARZON region, a vital industrial corridor in the country.

Strategic location enhances connectivity

Launched in 2015, Cavite Technopark is ALLHC’s second industrial estate which currently spans 166 hectares and caters to both PEZA-registered and non-PEZA locator companies.

Cavite Technopark, launched in 2015, is strategically located in Naic, Cavite. Its proximity to key international gateways, including the Cavite Gateway Terminal and Sangley Airport, offers businesses unparalleled accessibility and connectivity, making it an ideal location for FAHC’s expanded operations.

Enhanced distribution capabilities

FAHC, a leader in the meat industry, supplies a vast network across Luzon, including major traditional and modern trade channels, hotels, restaurants, and meat shops. Annually, the company distributes over 120,000 metric tons (MT) of pork, chicken, and beef, facilitated by a fleet of 150+ trucks and a workforce exceeding 900 individuals.

State-of-the-Art facility in Cavite Technopark

In March 2023, FAHC inaugurated one of the largest continuous cold storage warehouses (CSWs) in the Philippines at Cavite Technopark, which stands as the largest in South Luzon. This advanced facility, with a workforce of 180 individuals, underscores FAHC’s dedication to maintaining a robust supply chain and ensuring product quality.
