ESCA is the country’s pioneer in providing international engineering support services. Instead of uprooting Filipino professionals, ESCA sets up engineering teams within its main office for the exclusive use of its overseas clients. This business model has become so successful that the company management has devoted an entire floor to its teams of Filipino engineers and computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) operators servicing various foreign clients.
ESCA President Dr. Ernesto de Castro advocates technical competence and professional excellence of Filipino engineers. Along this line, he set up the ESCA Training Center (ETC) where engineers can take various courses in structural and civil works design and detailing, online or at the ETC. He feels that Filipino engineers should be competitive globally. Thus, they should be updated on the latest engineering technologies and software. ETC is a venue for that, de Castro says, adding that “engineers have to be continuously trained and updated. Not just our own, that’s why we are open to those who want to upgrade their skills and increase their knowledge. Even people from other countries are welcome because we have courses offered online.” Both the BPO-CADD and ETC divisions make ESCA distinct, but the intangible offerings that come with their services set the company apart from other firms, making ESCA truly unique. “We put emphasis on quality, function, and innovation.
