We have progressed as a company and we’re thankful to be able to continue working with people who share the same values of prioritizing quality, reliability and consistency. GBP, as a Filipino power company, shares our commitment to safety and environmental responsibility through their firm vision on investing in initiatives that improve the lives of the community where they operate.” shares Zuluaga.

“As we aim to provide quality yet cost-competitive service to our customers, we partner with like-minded organizations such as Chevron to carry out our commitment to our customers.
