About Tsuneishi Heavy Industries (CEBU), Inc.

A group company of Tsuneishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (head office: Fukuyama, Hiroshima Prefecture), which in 2014 is celebrating its 20th year of business on Cebu Island in the Philippines.


This company builds about 20 vessels per year, centered on the 30,000 ton to 180,000 ton class bulk carriers, and is one of the top shipyards in the Philippines, employing over10,000 people directly or through cooperative companies.


The company decided to move to Balamban, a small town on the west coast of Cebu, because of the availability of a large site facing the ocean, though the town’s infrastructure was underdeveloped. Other advantages were the fact Cebu has a technical university and sees relatively few typhoons.


English is also widely spoken in the Philippines, making it easier for the company to communicate with locals. Cebu has grown to become one of Tsuneishi’s most important overseas bases, accounting for nearly 40% of the ships the group builds.


The Philippine subsidiary builds 20 vessels a year, primarily bulk carriers, and plans to soon raise the number to 30. It employs 13,000 staff, including those working at related companies. The TFCI is located in the West Cebu Industrial Park-SEZ, Buanoy, Balamban, Cebu.
