This construction company is enjoying sweet victory lap-20 years after it first set up shop in the country and changed the game in the real estate industry. Built from scratch, DDT Konstract, Inc (DDTKI) is a corporation which caters to all types of general building construction. In the two solid decades that it has operated, the company has managed to become one of country’s most reliable construction company. Founded during the Asian crisis in the late 90’s by Engr. Danilo Tamayo and his wife Engr. Cynthia, the Tamayos had always seen DDTKI as a technology company, employing state-of-the-art equipment and weaving industry best practices in the business. While DDTKI was making a name for itself as a company that churns out top quality products, the game changer came when the company invested in a fully automated precast plant in Tanauan, Batangas-a rare thing in the country’s construction company. The precast technology, which can produce 50 hectares of precast concrete panels every year, was worth over a billion pesos of investment, it allowed DDTKI to truly compete with-and even surpass-more established players. Today, DDTKI has diversified into other business. There’s Agriwaras, a company that focuses on distribution of agricultural products, rice production and poultry and swine-raising, Whiteport, One of the fastest growing all-Filipino owned construction companies, Dataj Aquafarm, a 150 -hectare state-of-the-art aquaculture farm in Northern Cagayan. There’s also the Andres P. Tamayo Sr. foundation (named after Danilo’s father) which oversees the CSR activities of DDTKI, and DataLand, Property development arm of DDTKI.
