In 1968, the journey of Philsteel Group began with Mr. Uy Pu, the family patriarch, embarked on establishing the family’s galvanizing steel venture in Bohol. This marked the inception of what would evolve into the Philsteel Group of companies.
Fast forward to December 1979, a significant milestone was reached when Philsteel was founded through a collaborative effort with two renowned industrial manufacturing giants from Australia: John Lysaght Australia Ltd. (JLA) and Australia Mining and Smelting Company. This partnership led to the establishment of Philippine Steel Coating Corporation, with the Uy family assuming significant roles as major stockholders and corporate managers.
Within just three months of its incorporation, the construction of a groundbreaking plant commenced. This facility would go on to become the Philippines’ inaugural continuous galvanized and double-coated, double-baked pre-painted steel coil manufacturer. The introduction of the continuous galvanizing line solidified Philsteel’s pivotal role in advancing the country’s iron and steel industry, contributing significantly to its development and modernization.

Beyond offering building products to various industries and construction segments, the Philsteel Group answered the government’s call for a private sector-led integration of the middle to downstream sector of the local steel industry, regarded as the linchpin of industrialization. Thus, in 1996, Philsteel established the STEEL CORPORATION OF THE PHILIPPINES as an earnest response to the IRON AND STEEL INDUSTRY ACT.
In 1981, the Philsteel Group drew the blueprint of a new company which was envisioned to produce economical and durable building materials comparable to the world’s best. Out of this vision, a company called Philmetal Products, Inc. was established. Philmetal became fully operational in 1990, and is now engaged in roll-forming, slitting, shearing and fabrication of metal building products and systems such as roofing, cladding, floor decking, steel framing system and a host of steel sections and bended accessories that are integral parts of the building products.
In 2000, Philsteel launched PHILSTEEL VENTURES, INC., which later became PREMIER SHELTER PRODUCTS, INC., to support the Group’s sales in areas outside Philmetal’s scope, notably in the provinces outside NCR and Metro Cebu by establishing roll-forming operations in the provinces.
Uy Po, the Uy Family patriarch began building the family’s galvanizing steel business in Bohol, starting the roots that will later on become the Philsteel Group of companies.
The company entered into a joint venture with then two of Australia’s leading industrial manufacturing names: John Lysaght Australia Ltd. (JLA) and Australia Mining and Smelting Company. The partnership gave birth to a company known as Philippine Steel Coating Corporation with the Uy family as major stockholders and corporate managers.
Plant construction commenced on what was to become the Philippines’ first continuous galvanized and double-coated, double-baked pre-painted steel coil manufacturer. With the continuous galvanizing line, it’s pivotal role as a frontliner in the country’s struggle towards the development and modernization of the iron and steel industry was achieved.

Pres. Corazon Aquino enacted Republic Act 7103, also known as the “Iron and Steel Industry Act”, with the objective of supporting the growth of the local steel industry and reviving investor growth. The policy aims to be the catalyst for the growth, promotion and development of the Iron and Steel Industry, which serves as a springboard for Philippine industrialization.
Under the mandate of R.A. 7103, the Government asked Philsteel to jumpstart the country’s industrialization through an integrated iron and steel industry.
Guided by its Chairman’s vision of a more progressive Filipino, Philsteel Holdings organized the STEEL CORPORATION OF THE PHILIPPINES. Steelcorp’s manufacturing plant was built on a sprawling 22- hectares of prime land at the heart of Balayan, Batangas.
Steel Corporation of the Philippines under the helm of Philsteel Holdings pioneered the introduction of roofing technologies in the Philippines using patented, cutting edge technologies. This led to the launch of GALVALUME55®, the first locally produced 55% AL/ZN coated steel coated steel sheet that provides superior roofing protection for Filipinos.
Why is GALVALUME sheet called by other names? Are all of these products the same?
In the Philippines, Philsteel Holdings Corporation, through its subsidiary Steel Corporation of the Philippines, holds the trademarked copyright for the brand name GALVALUME55®.
GALVALUME55® is a 55% aluminum, 43.5 aluminum, 1.5% silicon coated sheet steel developed by Bethlehem Steel and sold commercially under the trademark GALVALUME55®, starting in June 1972. Bethlehem Steel later licensed other major steel companies to produce and sell the product using its patents and technology.
