The Features of West Cebu Industrial Park

Located in the heart of the Republic of the Philippines, a country comprising over 7,000 small and large islands, the island of Cebu with its capital Cebu City is the second-largest economy in the country after Manila. On this island, West Cebu Industrial Park has been playing a significant role as an important hub of the Philippines’ shipbuilding industry for more than 30 years. This PEZA-accredited industrial park not only provides a one-stop administrative service but also extremely attractive tax incentives for the locators, especially for export-oriented businesses, including but not limited to the shipbuilding sector. Marubeni has been involved in the business as a sales agency since 2023.

Administrative support from PEZA
West Cebu Industrial Park is PEZA-accredited. Locators can complete their administrative formalities by using the one-stop service and also benefit from generous tax incentives, including corporate tax and VAT exemptions.
Developed and operated by a well-established local company and a Japanese company
The park is developed and operated by Aboitiz Group, one of the Philippines’ leading conglomerates, and Japan-based Tsuneishi Holdings Corporation. Various facilities and shops including a hotel, fire station, convenience store, and pharmacies are located within the park to ensure convenience for the people in the area.
Reliable utility services provided by a local conglomerate with extensive experience
The utility services within the industrial park are provided by the Aboitiz Group, which has the second-largest power generation and transmission capacities and one of the largest private bulk water supply facilities in the Philippines, to support the locators operate their businesses consistently and seamlessly.
A leading shipbuilding center in the Philippines
The municipality of Balamban, in which the industrial park is located, is the shipbuilding capital of the ASEAN’s largest – and the world’s fourth-largest – shipbuilding country, the Philippines. It is expected to undergo further growth as the center of heavy industry, especially in the shipbuilding sector.


West Cebu Industrial Park is located in Balamban, a municipality along the western coast of Cebu Island. Major destinations, including the downtown area of Cebu City, the second-largest economy in the Philippines; Mactan-Cebu International Airport, which offers direct flights to and from Japan; and the Port of Cebu, a port used by many shipping companies and administered by the Cebu Port Authority (CPA); are accessible within a couple of hours from the park.
