We are veterans. Our story began way back in 1976 when our company was first established as R.R. Peñalosa Electrical & Communications Co., Inc. (R-PEC); a designer and contractor for building telephone systems and outside plant construction facilities for high-rise buildings, hotels, subdivisions and military bases.
Like all visionaries, we just needed that big break. Our venture grew rapidly that in 1985, we were given an opportunity to expand our operations to the United States with electrical contractor’s license in the State of California. Among the notable projects we undertook are the construction of a flight simulator building for F-16 airplanes at the El Toro Marine Base, one of the largest marine bases in the United States the Pacific stronghold of the US Naval Fleet, the design and build of a caster manufacturing plant, a 21-unit dwelling apartment building, and mini-mall to name a few.
Leveraging the Experience
The knowledge and experiences we gained as a contractor in the United States enabled us to adapt and infuse more thorough systems and procedures in the implementation of our various construction projects here in the Philippines, both in the commercial and industrial sectors.
Exceeding the Vision
The 1990s was a decade of significant change for us. We carried out a major restructuring program, broadening of our corporate organization and scope of operations; Hence the inception of WESTCO ELECTRICAL & EQUIPMENT CORPORATION.
The progress of dynamic products and ideas in the industry continued that we now specialize in supplying test instrument devices; provide power system testing services and design. Having partners in Europe and United States, we take pride in carrying the leading software and equipment available in the market.
