IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay will be a test of human endurance but to be enjoyed in the surrounding nature which Big Boss Cement aspires to preserve through its products. Therefore, it makes sense to partner Big Boss Cement with IRONMAN as both brands attest to the human will to endure and persevere,” said Ordoñez.

Subic Bay – a premier holiday destination for visitors from all over the world because of its first-class hotels and restaurants, numerous attractions and pristine beaches – was the logical partner for 100 percent Filipino-owned Big Boss Cement the eco-friendly cement company.

“We pride ourselves in being Filipino. Nobody in the world, I’m telling you, makes the same cement we do. At least in the way we do it. So we are a proud Filipino innovation.”
