RI Chem President Meneleo J. Carlos Jr., in a message to employees last January 22, urged them to “be prepared to welcome 2015,” the year when ASEAN economic integration takes effect and “when full ASEAN competition begins.”
He said that in 2015, “we will experience full competition like we have never experienced before” but at the same time “enjoy market opportunities” in other countries.
Noting that RI Chem has been competing both domestically and abroad over the past five decades, he asserted that “all we need to do is to keep improving our product mix, cost, quality and delivery.”
Mr. Carlos then enumerated points to focus on in these areas, such as knowing customers and competitors better, reducing costs and expenses, reducing pollution, timely delivery to customers, predictive and preventive maintenance, and strict quality control measures.
