Koop King Multi-Purpose Cooperative works in collaboration with various types of people, considering working with suppliers and clients with different needs and specific orders. It is quite challenging especially for our Marketing Team as front liners doing the task. Despite the challenge, exposure of our products leads us to meet and do business with other Cooperatives as well as private individuals who are interested to pursue a partnership with Koop King MPC. Due to these opportunities, there is a need to get out of your comfort zone and explore your future partner through study visits.

A Study Visit is when an individual or a group visit to a certain area such as a country for the purpose of knowledge exchange. In our case, the best area for knowledge exchange is our Manufacturing Satellite Office. PROVIDERS Multi-Purpose Cooperative is a well-established Cooperative wherein one of the highlights of their services is the PMPC Medical Center which recently opened on July 5, 2018. They conducted a study visit in one of Koop King MPCs Manufacturing Satellite Office which is located in Brgy. Pinatong-ulan, Lipa City, Batangas. The said activity is part of their Lakbay Aral and Team Building for CY 2018. PROVIDERS MPC visited Lipa Satellite Office last August 02, 2018 with which their team was participated by 61 employees. Along with it are their Board of Directors duly headed by Ms. Marie Dee B. Belagan, Chairperson of PROVIDERS MPC, Ms. Olivia T. Cureg, Vice-Chairperson, and their BOD Members, Ms. Maria A. Magaoay, Ms. Charito Rosario O. Aggabao, and Ms. Cecilia C. Racimo. While Koop King MPCs team is headed by the Chairperson, Ms. Mary Jean B. Tabayoyong together with the Board of Directors, Retired Col Carlos B. Cepe, Vice Chairperson, Board Members Ms. Fe A. Parone, Ms. Liza Z. Lumanga, and Ms. April Rose A. Merino. From the Management, General Manager, Imelda C. Bautista duly prepared for the said event since we are looking forward to a partnership with PROVIDERS MPC.

A short program was conducted showcasing the humble beginnings and a brief history of Koop King MPC. Retired MGen Rolando F. Capacia graced the event as our Guest Speaker. PMPCs Chairperson, Ms. Mary Dee B. Belagan, delivered her warm message and even stressed that Koop King shall marry PMPC as the Queen. Despite the rainy weather, the program pushed through successfully and it was shortly followed by a tour at Lipa Satellite Office. They were divided into two groups where the Assistant General Manager for Operations, Ms. Roselia T. Saura lead the first group and the Head of Lipa SO, Ms. Joan M. Lugo leads the second group. The tour for the two groups went well where they saw the manufacturing operations of Koop King MPC from silkscreen printing, sublimation printing, embroidery, UV printing, and even the sewing operations. They were also able to avail some stuff for a friendly price such as bags, jackets, statement shirts, and umbrellas.

With such experience, Koop King MPC got to know PROVIDERS MPC better and started a bond that we hope to last through years. We also learned in preparation for other upcoming activities. We look forward to making the tie official with PROVIDERS MPC!
