On November 19, 1956, in an era of foreign dominance in Philippine industry and commerce, a group of Filipino industrialists decided to establish PHINMA. Its founders Ambassador Ramon V. Del Rosario Sr., Don Filemon C. Rodriguez, Ernesto Escaler, all shared a common vision for a vibrant and progressive Philippines as they were committed to do their share in nation building.

Today, PHINMA continues its mission to help build our nation through competitive and well-managed business enterprises.
