It is time you find out for yourself why Pilfran is a known industry leader and innovator for almost half a century.


In 1965, Pilfran Trading was established by spouses Egmidio Fabian Pilapil and Felisa Francisco Pilapil. The demand of the local manufacturing industry for high quality custom-made machine components was the impetus the Company was quick to recognize and address - providing quality comparative to imported products but with very competitive pricing, while at that time, pioneering the 24-hour service 365 days a year concept in the industry.

Sheer determination, faith in the Filipino worker's ingenuity and craftsmanship, and competitiveness, kept Pilfran afloat through the rough times, but made it soar through the years - outliving many of its contemporaries and competitors.

Pilfran today is a paragon with the second generation Pilapil-Francisco at the helm. Demanding but satisfied clients span the entire Philippines and their number just keeps growing...
