ETERNAL Gardens Lipa took a significant step towards expanding its services in the city with the ceremonial signing of a three-hectare property deal. The deal was secured from AbaCore Capital Holdings through its Executive Vice President, Mr. Arturo V. Magtibay.
This deal marks a significant stride for Eternal Gardens Lipa, which was established in 1992 as the fifth branch of Eternal Gardens. The expansion area will offer memorial properties, including Lawn, Garden Property, Heritage Estate, and Family Estate. It reaffirms the company’s commitment to developing beautiful and well-maintained memorial parks for the Filipino people.
“We view the acquisition of this three-hectare property not merely as an expansion of our business, but as an expansion of our heart and purpose. This milestone is a testament to the enduring legacy of compassion and excellence instilled by my father, Amb. Antonio L. Cabangon Chua, whose guiding principles continue to shape our every endeavor,” said D. Edgard A. Cabangon, Chairman and CEO of Eternal Gardens.
The ceremony was attended by distinguished guests, including Governor Hermilando I. Mandanas of the Province of Batangas, who expressed his unwavering support and gratitude not just to Eternal Gardens but also to the entire ALC Group of Companies. Governor Mandanas remarked, “Nandito ako dahil maraming mga negosyo si Mr. Cabangon sa Batangas. At malaki ang naitutulong ng inyong grupo sa aking mga kababayan.”
At present, the Province of Batangas boasts three Eternal Gardens parks located in Batangas City (Balagtas and Concepcion), and in Lipa City, which have been serving the memorial care needs of its people.
