HISTORY

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Established in February 25, 1986, Agway Chemicals started as a dealer of agricultural chemicals and fertilizers in Davao City.  It  traced  its  root  as  a  small  business  endeavor  with  the  initiative  of Mr. Glicerio B. Rosario. It was founded along Sta. Ana Avenue under the trade name “Agway Chemicals” with only three people functioning all around. By the 90’s, the intensity of rivalry among competing firms increased and branches in Bankerohan in Davao City and Banay-banay in Davao Oriental were established respectively.

Over the years, operations and transactions became complicated as the business served vast number of dealers, plantations, growers and farmers. Mr. Rosario realized that sole proprietorship form of business could not carry on with the industry’s needs. Soon after, he decided to restructure the entire business by creating a new management which originally incorporated on November 22, 2004. The single type business became a family-owned business of the Rosarios. As part of the transformation, Agway Chemicals also changed its name to Agway Chemicals Corporation. In the following years, the company was able to expand more branches located in some areas in Visayas and Mindanao.

In the following years, the company was able to expand more branches located in some strategic areas of Visayas and Mindanao. Along with this progress, the Rosario’s owned several farms and was able to acquire Agro Technoproducts Inc. ― which commercially operates as importer of agricultural chemicals from abroad. Through this, agway held proprietary products which happened to be the only

distributor all over the Philippines. On the 18th of October 2008, another major event transpired as Agway

Chemicals Corporation transferred and inaugurated the epic building located at JP Laurel Avenue, Davao City.

Today, the company is engaged in the trading industry as an area distributor of branded agricultural chemicals and fertilizers from multinational suppliers such as Bayer Crop Science, Du Pont, Syngenta, and Sinochem Philippines. The company extended its services in selling generic products, seeds and farm equipment. It has 11 branches strategically located in several areas in Visayas and Mindanao and it never stops intensifying the quality of services, branching out and increasing the workforce. Likewise, it is active in corporate social responsibility (i.e. building houses, self-motivated in every GK projects and other charitable developments) as an avenue of giving back the fruitful journey over the years.
