Prior to its incorporation, Engr. Pepito Pajarillo Lo, a Mechanical Engineering graduate of Adamson University, established and operated Shinyo Heavy Equipment and Industrial Supply in 1976 as a single proprietorship, with three (3) staff members along with a few Japanese consultants as his Business Associates. Shinyo Heavy Equipment Enterprise engaged in trading, indent and importation of heavy equipment parts, electrical, industrial equipment and spare parts. The volume of business transactions grew considerably, Engr. Lo, thought it best to convert the business into a corporation to establish a stronger identity. Thus, in January 1997, KEMPAL United Corporation was established to continue the business of Shinyo. In addition to its services offered, the Engineering Department’s scope of work was expanded to accommodate systems integration, preventive maintenance services, upgrading / retrofit and supply, installation of supplied equipment and parts projects to major industrial facilities in the Philippines.
