ULTICON BUILDERS, INC., : Building Farm to Market Roads since 1996

Ulticon Builders, Inc., started building Farm to Market Roads (FMR) in 1996. Its first project was the Rehabilitation of Sangay – Simbalan Road in Sangay and Olave, Buenavista, Agusan del Norte. The road, with a budget of P4,942,420.00, was started on July 5 and was completed on September 16, 1996.

Since then, Ulticon has been one of the top contractor companies to have built new FMRs and repaired or upgraded existing ones. These FMRs are mostly located in Regions 10 and 11 particularly in Bukidnon, Samal, Kapatagan, Lacson, Lamanan, Calinan and Bansalan.

Before the increase in the rate of construction of FMRs, the people in the different regions in Mindanao suffered greatly because of lack of roads or because existing roads were underdeveloped or poorly constructed. Farmers had to endure financial losses due to spoilage of goods caused by the long travel time needed to transport them from the farm to the town markets. Residents in general faced the dangers posed by the rough condition of the roads such as vehicular accidents causing physical injuries or even deaths. They also had limited number of employment opportunities because of the inferior level of transportation available making travel from one town to another costly and exhausting.

These predicaments were addressed and are continuously being dealt with through the greater attention that the government has been allotting to the construction of FMRs. Contractor companies such as Ulticon are given the opportunity to help the residents in the rural areas by constructing high-quality FMRs thereby alleviating the living conditions in these communities.

One FMR leads to a series of improvements that are undeniably important in decreasing poverty in every rural community.  It stimulates agricultural activities by providing easier access to markets and encouraging farmers to have an entrepreneurial mindset. It also means easier access to schools, making education more accessible to children from rural areas. Basic social services such as hospitals and clinics are now also within reach to those who need them. Furthermore, greater mobility means accessibility of non-agricultural employment opportunities in other places.

Ulticon takes pride in being one of the key players in this process of nation building. When Ulticon Builders constructed its FMR, it knew that it was not just a road that it was building. It was a road to better livelihood and greater opportunities; a clear path to nation building. And this vision is always at play in every FMR project that Ulticon Builders, Inc. embarks on.
