For over five decades, the Jacinto name has been synonymous
with quality roofing products and services. In 1958, Jacinto Steel
came into being as the pioneer manufacturer of G.I. sheets in the
Philippines, founded by visionary and father of the Philippine
Steel Industry, Don Fernando P. Jacinto. In 1968, Don Fernando won
the bid to build Iligan Integrated Steel Mills (IISMI), the
country’s and South East Asia’s first integrated steel mill, which
later became National Steel.
As a testament to the company’s expertise in the color-roofing
industry, Jacinto prides itself in trailblazing the first color
coating line in the country. In the 1970s, the Jacinto Group
pioneered the manufacture of locally pre-painted long span GI
sheets. JacintoColor Pre-Painted Sheets became the market leader,
known for its anti-corrosion and paint adhesion properties.
