Our sponsorship of the annual golf tournament confirms our support to the beneficiary, the Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association
The Philippines Mining & Exploration Association held their 6th Annual Invitational Golf Tournament last month, whose proceedings support the Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association’s activities in promoting responsible mining. Maccaferri has been a sponsor since the first edition of this event and this year we confirmed our support to the association as the Title sponsor. This testifies to our efforts to minimize the environmental impact of mining through our solutions for mine operations, restitution and rehabilitation.
On Friday, March 10th 2017, the Philippine Mining & Exploration Association held their 6th Annual Invitational Golf Tournament at The Orchard Golf & Country Club in Dasmariñas City Cavite. Proceeds from the tournament support the Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association’s various activities in promoting responsible mining.
As the Title Contributor of the event, Maccaferri sponsored ‘Hole No. 1’ and delivered a key address at the luncheon served after 18 holes of this beautiful course. The banner placed at Hole No. 1 read, “MACCAFERRI – Minimize the environmental impact of mining – The best products for mine site restitution and rehabilitation”.
We were delighted to have Mr. Ugo Castellotti, CEO of Maccaferri Asia and Mr. Jeff Eng, General Manager of Maccaferri Malaysia attend and play at this prestigious tournament. Jeff was able to walk away with a trophy for Runner-up Class A and Ugo bagged runner–up in Group C.
During lunch, we were invited to deliver a brief introduction of both company and solutions for the mining sector. Mr. Terry Hockenhull, VP Sales & Marketing, mentioned Maccaferri needed little or no introduction at this event as we have been title sponsors for the last 6 years and work closely with the mining community. Specific reference was made to the many challenges faced by the mining community at this time that Maccaferri can assist with in the area of mine site rehabilitation and restitution in particular.
We value the annual tournament as an opportunity to engage with a target group of top-level mining executives, professionals and mining-related service providers and look forward to participating in the years ahead.
