2 July 2018 - ORIENTAL PORT AND ALLIED SERVICES CORPORATION celebrated its 28th Year Anniversary at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino, Cebu City. Employees together with their families and distinguished guests from various business industries filled the place with warmth smile, laughter and happiness.

A thanksgiving mass was celebrated to honor God's unfailing love, grace and protection to the Company, its employees and their families throughout the years. 

Mr. Jessielou Cadungog - OPASCOR Vice-Chairman opened the second part of the program and introduced the honored guests.

Hon. Mayor Tomas Osmena, Hon. Angelo C. Verdan, Consul Antonio N. Chiu, Cong. Raul V. Del Mar and Cong. Raymond C. Mendoza delivered their short messages of congratulations and well wishes for the future projects that OPASCOR is set to embark.

One of the highlights of its anniversary celebration was the formal awarding of the Integrated Management System (IMS) Certification for ISO 9001:2015 “ Quality Managements System, ISO 14001:2015 “ Environmental Management System and BS OSHAS 18001:2007 Occupational, Health and Safety Management System to the Company after passing the 4-day rigorous audit conducted by TUV Rheinland Philippines, Inc. Mr. Tristan Arwen Loveres, Managing Head of TUV Rheinland, awarded the certification to OPASCOR Board of Directors headed by its Chairman and CEO Atty. Tomas A. Riveral.

A Plaque of Appreciation was also awarded to Ms. Maria Lorna Valdez of D' Lanor Management Consultancy for her unwavering support during the Company's preparation for the IMS Audit.

Atty. Tomas A, Riveral delivered his inspirational talk by looking back on how the Company triumphed in all the challenges it has encountered. Over the years, OPASCOR has spent millions of dollars to modernize its equipment and cargo handling operations. It has also acquired real properties and has raised the salaries and benefits of its employees. OPASCOR Founder, Atty. Democrito T. Mendoza Sr. and those 389 original stockholders never thought that this Company will grow bigger than their dreams. Though very challenging, and at times emotionally draining, Atty. Riveral's 27 years in OPASCOR was a kaleidoscope of the best and happy years of his life. He also laid down the future projects that OPASCOR will undertake in the years to come and shared his favorite saying that goes: "Yesterday is already a dream and tomorrow is only a vision, but today we live and make every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope". He ended his talk answering the question of "What did he do for OPASCOR? with "I don't know what I have done, but I know I did everything I could."

Raffle prizes were given to lucky employees such as Libre Pa-Eskwela worth P20,000 and home appliances with the Grand Prize of 42-inch flat screen TV. Performances from local artists and the showdown of employees' talents in acting and dancing made the event fun and memorable. Indeed it was a day of success and thanksgiving to OPASCOR! God bless OPASCOR!!!
