1.1 Company Background
March Resources Manufacturing Corporation was established on March 1, 1990. It was founded by Mr. Amador U. Emnace Jr, the current President and CEO of the company, together with Mr. Tan Ke Tay, the current Exec. Vice President and COO of the company. It started manufacturing clear gloss lacquers and sanding sealers under the brand name “Weber”. With a policy of commitment and continued dedication to research and development on quality and products range, March Resources has embarked on producing and marketing a wider range of products.
With a professional and long term outlook, March Resources foresaw ample opportunities and potential in the automotive coatings field. Hence, in 1991, the company added the full range of pigmented lacquers sold through a network of dealers and paint centers.
In 1993, the company transferred to a bigger manufacturing plant in Valenzuela, where a full-service Laboratory dedicated to evaluating possible new products for the future and to developing solutions for specific customer needs was set-up. A team of development technicians is available to help existing and potential customers to solve technical problems and to develop new products. As a result of this, epoxy enamels and primers were then added to the product range.
In 1996, polyester body filler was introduced to complete the system of the car refinishing market, immediately followed by the introduction of automotive polyurethane paint under the brand name Keema.
To further its lead in the automotive paint’s product technology, March Resources in 1997, recognizing the need of the market for a high-end range of automotive coatings, an exclusive distributorship was negotiated and subsequently awarded to March Resources by PPG, (Pittsburgh Paint Glass of USA). PPG is the leader in automotive paints in the world.
In 2003, March Resources introduced the K92 Auto Refinish Paints, to satisfy the need for high quality yet competitively-priced refinish paints. Furthermore, in 2004 Weber Urethane Paint was introduced to complete the company’s range of premium automotive paints.
