JDI partners with National Historical Institute to preserve and protect   Philippine historical sites

Historic places give background to great stories of triumphs, conflicts and challenges only made known through history books.  Just recently in Bohol, many heritage sites have sustained damage from the strong earthquake that hit the area in 2013.  Most of these damages are almost irreparable. Unknown to most people, many other historical structures suffer damages as well.

From the structure’s wear-and-tear through time as an aftermath of water damage resulting to the growth of molds; influx wood-boring insects and the most common and most destructive,                               termite-infestation.

JDI Pest Control Supervisor Jess Claudio and Ms. Gina C. Batuhan, Chief Historic Sites and Education Division (in white) conduct the formal turnover of Solignum Wood Preservative to be used in the repair and renovation of the Museo ni Apolinario Mabini in PUP, Sta. Mesa.  Joining them are Mr. Bryan C. Paraiso, Senior Historic Sites Development; and NHI Chief Architect Wilkie B. Delumen with other historical sites curators.

In 2007, Jardine Distribution Inc. (JDI) a known distribution company and Osmose Protim, the maker of Solignum wood preservatives, formed a partnership with the National Historical Institute (NHI) to protect the heritage structures from damages caused by termites. Last January 24, JDI and NHI further capitalized on this partnership by joining hands in restoring the Museo ni Apolinario Mabini located at PUP Sta. Mesa.

As part of the repair and restoration done to the Museo ni Apolinario Mabini, Solignum Interior wood preservative was applied to the wooden structures to prevent a new termite infestation.  Apart from donating Solignum for the site’s restoration, JDI also trained the NHI curators on total termite solutions.

“Our historical sites are tangible reminders of our identity as Filipinos. They   re-tell stories of heroism and love for country that will inspire future generations of Filipinos. Because of their invaluable historical and cultural value, JDI has committed itself to help in their protection and preservation,” said Edwin Hernandez, President and General Manager of Jardine Distribution.

Jardine Distribution, Inc. represents a number of local and global companies that provide world-class crop protection and construction chemical products. They                          are focused on the safe use of these products, providing technical              support, and with due consideration of environmental protection.
