Joseph Calata: Revolutionizing The Agricultural Community With Technology
Today, the largest distributor of agricultural chemicals, feeds, fertilizers and other agricultural products of the Philippines is Calata Corporation. The once mom-and-pop run business was taken over by son, Joseph Calata, who revolutionized the business by turning its operations automated. By utilizing the much needed computer technology available at that time, the distributor reaped in a huge P1.8 billion revenue in 2009 and 2010
This revenue is nine times more the year Joseph Calata took over management back in 2003 where revenue was seen at P200 million. During his earlier years, the young businessman was a clerk in his parents' company. He was able to maneuver his way in to management by computerizing their systems. By changing the management operations and tightening credit and collection, he was able to make greater sales.
This corporation is part of the top one thousand of the country's companies and is part of the fastest networks of distribution in the industry today. The large corporation, which was formerly known as Planters Choice Agro Products, is now the exclusive distributor of some world renowned chemicals, fertilizers and feeds in the Philippines. The company, which was built and is based in Bulacan, still aims to expand its horizons and open up more opportunities for people across the nation.
With a more efficient system as well as better advertising and marketing campaigns, Calata Corporation was able to see better days. This corporation is now the biggest agriculture product distributor in the Philippines today and it is still growing. From starting with a small office staff to now employing over two hundred people, Calata Corporation is a company that is still definitely on the rise. The aim now is to expand and build more stores nationwide.
Not only is he helping the world of agriculture in the Philippines, but Joseph Calata is able to fight the unemployment rates and open up jobs for a great number. This business savvy man is not afraid to get his hands dirty as he will readily visit fields to check up on farmers. He is ready to grow his business in terms of sales and come up with ways to make these more sustainable.
Calata Corporation will soon see more stores nationwide and will cater to more farmers. These wholesome products are proudly preferred by farmers and breeders across the nation. Besides the sales in agriculture from the feeds and other products, the young businessman also takes part in growing and feeding which adds to the corporations overall revenue. The projects do not come to a stop here for the Calatas as their business is still looking to a much better tomorrow.
