The Cement Institute of the Philippines was organized with six members:

  1. Cebu Portland Cement Corporation
  2. Rizal Cement Corporation
  3. Bacnotan Cement Corporation
  4. Republic Cement Corporation
  5. Panay Cement Corporation
  6. Universal Cement Corporation

The association enjoyed the support of the Philippine government which recognized its importance in ensuring economic growth. The early industry association’s goals were to pool the resources of the cement industry and to undertake various endeavors that would enhance its orderly growth and share in the development of the nation’s economy.


The Cement Institute of the Philippines changed its name to Cement Association of the Philippines, although retaining its original vision and mission.


The Cement Association of the Philippines changed its name to Philippine Cement Corporation in keeping with a presidential decree which gave it the authority to engage in more active commercial operations, including those related to developing the export market to prepare the industry to be more globally-oriented.


The word ‘Manufacturers’ was inserted to the name, to become Philippine Cement Manufacturers’ Corporation, to distinguish it from other cement organizations.


The country entered into a phase of more liberalized trade with the takeover of President Corazon Aquino. The Philippine Cement Industry Authority (PCIA) was abolished and an Ad-hoc Task Force composed of the Development Bank of the Philippines and cement industry officials was formed to devise an action program for the industry.


In August of 2003, the name Philcemcor was officially shed and evolved into CeMAP, the Cement Manufacturers Association of the Philippines, Inc. The new name and vision reflects the industry’s reinvigorated image geared towards meeting new challenges of the times. A more environmentally and socially aware CeMAP intends to enhance its participation in matters and affairs that will lead to assuring consumers and Filipinos that its domestic cement industry is truly part and parcel of the Filipino dream to be globally competitive and successful.
