Acceptance Speech quoted from Phil Ramos, Jr.:
“We at Philatron are extremely honored to be recognized as one of your awardees, because we are a true blued manufacturer. And it is good that a manufacturer be recognized in our country where we have lost so much of our manufacturing infrastructure. I would like to share a little story with you.
With the Grace of God Philatron was founded by me in 1974 with less than $200. We grew to a certain point and then I got burned out, because it was not fun just making money just for me. At this period of my life I lost my motivation to build and would escape from Philatron to the tennis courts. And then a crisis would come and I would solve the crisis and then return to the tennis courts. This was my routine until I discover a revelation of a higher purpose than just to serve myself!
Philatron could be used as an instrument to serve other things!!
– To serve our employees and their families with steady and reliable income.
– To serve our customers with good value.
– To serve our community with needed contributions.
– And to serve our faith through stewardship.
After that REVELATION, I became re-energized and motivated, and since then Philatron has grown to be one of the largest – if not the largest – manufacturers of electrical wire and cable in So. CA.
The bottom line is: it is in giving that we receive!
God bless all of you. Thank you so much!!”
