Agri-Business by Mach Global Power

Agriculture is the great understanding of the circles of life,

may it be in simplicity or may it be for all its glory,

in which such knowledge are redesigned to give providence to man;

may his task be is to breathe or seemly to all his living.

Perfect Time

Noel Banawa Construction & Development and JIC Philippine Development Co. SN Boeki Group, a subsidiary of Mach Global Power, started its operation in the mid-1970s as an exclusive Philippine Distributor – Agent of Japanese made agricultural tractors (and other farm implements) and irrigation types of machinery.

Masagana 99

Promoted by then Philippine President Ferdinand, Masagana 99 is a way for the Philippines to achieve rice self-sufficiency. The program was launched at the time the country was experiencing a shortage of supply on rice and was credited for the launching of the Philippine Green Revolution in 1973 which allowed the country to export rice to other Asian countries.

Recently, President Rodrigo Duterte expressed his interest to revive the program. The Department of Agriculture that Masagana 99 will use newer varieties of rice and insists that environmentally friendly pesticides will be promoted.

In the previous Masagana 99 Program, Mach Global Power participated through its exclusive distributorship of products essential to make this program achieve it goals. The potentially reviving of this program could also be served by a stronger and a more globally influential Mach Global Power

Engines

Going back, the Masagana 99 program was timely with the inception of Mach Global Power Agri-Business. And, Mach Global Power determines that tractor, machinery and fertilizer would be ultimately necessary to modernized and aid the Masagana 99 Program.

In lieu, through its Noel Banawa Construction & Development and JIC Philippine Development Co. SN Boeki Group, Mach Global Power distributed Japanese made agricultural tractor (and other farm implements) and irrigation types of machinery. Untilizing Mitsubishi made engines during the time that Mitsubishi Brand New Cars are firstly being introduce to the Philippines (1974), the tractors are considered top of the line.

During the Masagana 99 Program, Mach Global Power assisted farmers and fishermen to obtain approval for their financial assistance applications. The financial assistance acquired were invested by farmers and fishermen in their agri-businesses through the purchase of agricultural types of machinery and fertilizer.

The Financial Assistance that were granted were funded through the courtesy of the World Bank. The said financial assistance are then coursed through the Central Bank of the Philippines and dispersed to the farmers and fishermen through the Rural Banks and Development Funding Program nationwide. In Ilocos, some of the farmers and fishermen obtain their funding also through the efforts of Mach Global Power’s partnership with some Rural Banks.

Now, Mach Global Power’s Osaka and Tokyo, Japan Offices have been working to expand business relationships with joint-venture partners from South Korea, Mainland China, and Japan.

During his time in the Philippines, CEO Manoel Banawa’s experience as a young Rural Bank Director, twenty five years of age, aided him as he proceeded in the international scene.

Kenaf Plant

A member of the hibiscus family (Hibiscus cannabinus L), the Kenaf Plant is related to cotton and okra,and grows well in many parts of the U.S. It offers a way to make paper without cutting trees. Kenaf grows quickly, rising to heights of 12-14 feet in as little as 4 to 5 months.

Kenaf is a fiber plant native to east-central Africa where it has been grown for several thousand years for food and fiber. It is a common wild plant of tropical and subtropical Africa and Asia. It has been a source of textile fiber for such products as rope, twine, bagging and rugs. Kenaf is a promising source of raw material fiber for pulp, paper and other fiber products, and has been introduced since WWII in China, USSR, Thailand, South Africa, Egypt, Mexico and Cuba.

and the Kenaf Plant


Mach Global Power AGRI-Business Research and Development Team has seen the potentials of Kenaf Plant to improve our way of life.

Kenaf reveals a virtuous source of high and improved quality cordage fiber which can be processed into a variety of goods such as fiber and particle boards, fiber-reinforced plastic components, pulp and paper, chemical absorbents, and many others. All the components of the kenaf plant, leaves, seeds, bast fiber, and core, are of industrial importance. The countless variabilities in the utilization of kenaf only because of its appropriateness as construction material (such as boards of different densities, breadths, along with fire and insect resistance), adsorbent, textile, livestock feed, and fibers in original and reprocessed plastics are demonstrated by many recent studies and research efforts are increasing nowadays.


As shown above, CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Secretary representing the Anhui Province, Architect D. Sam Scheele, CEO-Director Manoel Banawa, Mr. Gu, General Manager of China News Agency (Headquartered in Beijing), altogether with the Chinese government officials of Anhui Province teamed up for a structured project finance of a Power Generation Plant with the usage of Kenaf. Anhui Province, China, has been cultivating the Kenaf Plant for more than a thousand years.  Dr. Hiroshi Inagaki of Kyoto, Japan, President of Japan Kenaf Association showed favor in this project.
