leading in quality and innovative engineering, committed to nation building.

Corporate History

 

From Small Survey Team to Top Ten in Construction and Biggest Dredging Capabilities in the Far East.

 

“I used to share a small room in Palomo Building at Azcarraga Street (now Claro M. Recto Avenue) in Manila with three lawyers in 1949, and we had only one secretary for the four of us,” Engr. Felipe F. Cruz, company founder, reminisced.  More popularly known among his colleagues simply as FF, with professionalism in his pursuit of excellence in his chosen fields of Geodetic Engineering and Civil Engineering, and his uncommon foresight and great passion in producing results, transformed the small surveying outfit into a full-service engineering construction firm incorporated in October 1954.  The company today is built on his values and legacy of providing quality and reliability to its clients.

 

While other companies build their reputation, F. F. CRUZ & CO., INC.’s reputation is founded on what it builds.  Quality is the strict policy of the company’s operations from the start. 

 

Unsurpassed International Record in Surveying 

 

During its early years, the company established an unsurpassed international record in surveying in the Philippines. It had the only group of Filipino surveyors hired by the U.S. Government for geodetic surveys in the Southwest Pacific area to the West Coast of the United States, and up to the North Pacific in Alaska, to determine the exact distances between geographic points in different islands in the Pacific Basin. The U.S. Government reiterated their trust in the company`s capability with sole source category contracts for occultation and astronomical surveys extending from the U.S. Mainland, Hawaii to South Vietnam, Alaska, Iran, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, South Vietnam, Cambodia, Borneo, Okinawa and the Philippines: Satellite Triangulation-Project Betty, and followed by another sole source contract for world-wide tracking of geodetic satellites as part of the SECOR (Sequential Collation of Ranges) System. These were year-to-year contracts that started in 1958 and were completed in 1970.

 

Working solely on company-operated projects or in association with foreign engineering firms, F. F. CRUZ & CO., INC., also accomplished engineering surveys in Syria, Bangladesh, Palau, Diego Garcia, North Borneo, Vietnam and Indonesia in the province of Riau, Sumatra Selatan, and East Kalimantan.

 

Involvement in Engineering Design, Construction, and Heavy Equipment

 

With the increasing demands of a developing country for engineering and construction services, the company ventured into civil engineering and architectural engineering services. In a span of five years, from 1965 to 1970, almost simultaneously, the Engineering Division, Construction Division, and the Heavy Equipment Division started operations, transforming the company from a surveying firm into a full engineering and construction firm.

 

The influx of construction projects started in 1972 with a contract for a 33-kilometer road from Camarines Sur to Albay, a segment of the Philippine-Japan Friendship Highways. This was followed by other contracts for highways and bridges amounting to US$20 Million, and US$15.43 Million for civil works. Construction contracts for a series of geothermal power plants, seaports and ferry terminals, waterworks and sewerage system, office buildings, housing projects, irrigation, and other civil works amounting to about P1.0 billion were completed in the succeeding years.

 

Anticipating the country’s growing need for ports and harbors developments to connect its 7,107 islands, F. F. CRUZ & CO., INC. prepared for the challenge by expanding its facilities and equipment for seaport construction and marine works. 

 

From P50,000 Initial Capital to Category “AAAA” and Multi-Billion Peso Assets.

        

From its initial paid up capital of P50,000.00 when it was incorporated in 1954, F. F. CRUZ & CO., INC. has grown into a diversified general engineering contractor with multi-billion-peso total assets. The company is rated “AAAA” by the Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board, and it has, through the years, maintained its position among the top construction firms in the Philippines.

 

In construction, F. F. CRUZ & CO., INC. is a leading highway contractor, and the company also specializes in dams and flood control works.  It is also the pioneer and the nation’s leading contractor in advanced micro-tunneling technology and balanced cantilever bridge work.
