President’s Message

As of October, 2008 MESCO has celebrated over 50 years of business because of the level of service we provide our stakeholders, the most important of which are our customers, suppliers and staff.

  1. We strive to delight our customers by providing goods, technology and services beyond their expectations.
  2. We support our suppliers by continuously re-investing our profits to promote their brands.
  3. We invest to develop our staff with the most up to date information and techniques needed to provide the best service.

In the last 30 years I have been with MESCO, the company had undergone three major business crises. There was the Aquino assassination in 1983, the failed coup attempt in 1989, and the Asian crisis in 1997.

During these times, MESCO prospered. We were able to get a larger share of the market. While our competitors were cutting back on their services, MESCO invested more in technology and in our staff and was rewarded with more business. Today in October 2008, we are facing another challenge - a worldwide financial crisis. It is expected that sales and profits will go down for the entire industry.

We look upon this as an opportunity to further our commitment to our stakeholders by investing more in our facilities and training programs. In a few years the situation will normalize. While our competitors will still be pulling themselves up off the ground, our team would have been further strengthened and be ready and eager to face the challenges ahead.

History of Mesco

In 1956, a young entrepreneur named Peter N. Lee had a vision of an industrialized nation. He founded the Manufacturers' Equipment and Supply Co. out of a small apartment in Manila. By day, it had offices and machine displays. At night, it was Peter and his wife Mercy's home.

Six months after they started, Peter travelled to Germany to learn about manufacturing technology. It was his goal to discover applicable technology abroad and bring them back to the Philippines. Peter visited machine shows and impressed the suppliers he met there. He came home as the exclusive distributor of Schuler Presses in the Philippines.

True to Peter's pioneering spirit, MESCO was the first to introduce several significant technologies into the Philippines. This impressive list includes: the first automatic screw machine and the first electronic discharge machine (EDM). With more than 50 years of experience in the industry, MESCO has become the leader in the Machine Tools Industry here in the Philippines, introducing many new technologies into the market. 

The First Mazak Quickturn in the Philippines




This is the first Mazak Quickturn 10 in the Philippines which Mr. Peter Lee bought as his 50th year birthday present in September 1, 1981.

This was kept in the basement of his home where he would show off his new toy to his friends and business associates.

The machine was later sold to Oriental Tin Can (OTC). In 2004, Mesco took back this machine as a trade-in and has been in display since then as a reminder of the foresight of Mr. Lee. It was only in the early 90's when CNC machines became popular in the Philippines. Mr. Lee's vision of bringing in the first CNC machine ten years earlier illustrates his vision.

Mesco and Mazak were the first to promote and invest in CNC machines. This move, done far earlier than their competitors, has helped them carve their way into being the leaders in this market.
