Frey-Fil kicks off 25th Anniversary Celebration
More than 200 participants gathered for the much-anticipated joint anniversary celebration event held last July at the U.P. Diliman Amphitheater, Quezon City.
Francis Frederic H. Cruz, Chairman of the EAC Group of Companies welcomed everyone with a statement that, “This celebration, more than anything is to celebrate the people who are making it possible for us to reach these milestones.” The celebration will not be made possible without the hard-working men and women who serve as the backbone of the various companies, added the chairman during his opening message.
The event started with the parade of employees from Frey-Fil Corporation, Filmetrics Corporation and Affiliates with their respective colored tees and headlined by their banners. Frey-Fil Corporation is an ISO 9001:2015 certified organization by SGS Philippines, for more than a decade. Filmetrics Corporation is enroute to its ISO 9001:2015 certification.
“Milestones namely the 25th Anniversary of Frey-Fil Corporation and the 10th Anniversary of Filmetrics Corporation are just few of the milestones we are celebrating. Let these milestones serve as a reminder for us to look back on all the trials, hardships and sacrifices we went through; all the people we have encountered and worked with along the way; and to what we have achieved to bring us where we are right now and where we should bring ourselves in the next 25 years and more,” said the chairman.
“In the next month or so, we join our hearts and voices in thanking those who came before us. We thank the Lord for the chance to celebrate these milestones,” added the chairman.
