By: Ramon J. Macandog
NPC President and CEO Ma. Gladys Cruz-Sta Rita led the inauguration and unveiling of the dedication plaque of the new 3-storey office building of SPUG-Luzon located at Barangay Minuyan, City of San Jose Del Monte, Province of Bulacan last November 23, 2016. Joining the event were VP Edmundo A. Veloso Jr, VP Lorna T. Dy, former SVP Danilo S. Sedilla together with the SPUG Luzon Operations Managers and personnel.
The building has a total floor area of 792 square meters. It will house the office of the Managers and staff of SPUG composed of Luzon Operations Department (LOD), Administration and Finance Division (AFD), Warehouse, Maintenance and Technical Services Division (WMTSD) and resident-COA.
As a background, on April 1, 1997, then NPC President Guido Alfredo A. Delgado turned-over the Minuyan stockyard to SPUG. In 2003, SPUG Luzon personnel occupied the area with its office located within the WMTSD warehouse premises in Minuyan. Sometime in 2007, SPUG proposed the construction of an office-building within Minuyan Stockyard premises, however the plan did not materialized. It was only until the first visit of NPC President and CEO Ma. Gladys Cruz-Sta. Rita (PGSR) in Minuyan that paved the way for the long-planned construction of SPUG office building.
The construction of the building started in November 2015. Such was made possible through the unwavering support of PGSR, VP Edmundo A. Veloso, with the help of Acting PES VP Atty Rogel T. Teves, VP Lorna T. Dy & former SVP Danilo S. Sedilla.
