Jhaymarts Industries, Inc. is a Davao City-based company known as the pioneer manufacturer of polyethylene pipes in Mindanao. Founded in 1992 by Datu Bago Awardee, Engr. Illuminado Quinto, it has established a name in providing quality pipes used in the field of water distribution, irrigation, and drainage.
Before availing of DOST’s programs and services, the firm used depreciated equipment that resulted to high rejection rate of finished products. The frequent breakdowns significantly affected overall operations.
However, through DOST-SETUP Innovation System Support Fund (ISSF), the firm acquired a High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Pipe Extrusion Line. It was also enrolled under the Manufacturing Productivity Extension (MPEX) program, Energy Audit, and Cleaner Production Assessment. These programs under DOST helped the firm optimize and stabilize its operations.
The results speak for itself. Jhaymarts almost doubled its production of polyethylene pipes and reduced rejection by 33%. Power consumption was also reduced by 25%.
Today, the firm has been tapped by international companies from Israel, Singapore, South Korea, and others because of what it has to offer in terms of product quality and the latest technologies. It likewise continues to play a significant role in supporting the local agriculture industry, especially in Mindanao, by providing locally-made pipes thus saving importation costs.
