Takahiro Tanaka, Sharp (Phils.) Corp. President, said this development makes Sharp Philippines the first and only electronics industry player in the country to make its LED and LCD screens locally. This he bared during simple ceremonies held recently at the Sharp plant in Muntinlupa City.

 Tanaka said that despite the challenges faced by the company over recent years, it did not prevent them from further producing more products for Philippine customers. "We are committed to continue manufacturing affordable yet quality products for the local market despite challenges and stiff market competition."

He proceeded to thank as well the national government and the local government of Muntinlupa City for their support in the company's efforts to be more attuned to the demands of Filipino consumers.

For his part, Adrian Cristobal Jr., Undersecretary for Industry Development and Trade Policy Group (IDTPG) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), lauded Sharp Philippines, calling its decision to manufacture its LED and LCD screens in the country "an exciting episode in the local electronics industry."

"We commend Sharp Philippines for its continued commitment to produce high-value, high-quality yet affordable products. This is really great news for the country, as it is only a matter of time before the Philippines reaches its status as 'Asia's Next Tiger Economy.'" Representing Mayor Aldrin San Pedro of Muntinlupa City, Atty. Byron San Pedro, City Administrator of Muntinlupa City, said that the city admires the company's creativity and sincerity.

He pointed out Sharp's creativity, which is focused on making electronic products that are meant to improve one's way of living. Also, he mentioned of the company's sincerity, particularly in the way it makes its products that are meant to provide total customer satisfaction.

But with this development, Atty. San Pedro pointed out that Sharp Philippines went beyond creativity and sincerity. "Today, Sharp Philippines showed that aside from creativity and sincerity, it also has a big heart. This development is indeed a true testament of Sharp giving value to what the Philippines — and the Filipinos — can do," he said.

After the short program, guests immediately proceeded to the manufacturing floor and after the ribbon-cutting ceremony, all witnessed the very first LED and LCD screens as they rolled out of the assembly line, particularly the Sharp's Aquos LC-24LE440M, which retails at the market with price of P11,998.

Sharp (Phils.) Corp. recently celebrated its 30th year of business in the Philippines and 100 years worldwide. In the Philippines, Sharp is committed to help enhance Filipinos' lives by bringing world-class audio and video devices, home appliances and other consumer electronics products. (

  1. I hope and pray that more Japanese, South Korean, Singaporean, Australian, New Zealander, Canadian, USA, UK, Dutch, Spanish, German, Hungarian, Brazilian, French, Israeli, Swedish, Russian and Italian companies will put up businesses in the Philippines.

  2. As far as I know, Sharp is a USA Technology. I hope Sharp has the edge of vieying the Korean technology like Samsung and LG in LED, 3D Screen manufacturing. The Fact is Korean technology are just copied from Japanese and USA technology but the innovation done by Samsung and LG is quiet great which even more excellent the the Original technology of USA and Japan. That's the good thing about Korean Screen technology. Now Korean Technology led the world for Screens 3D LED HD etc

  3. thanks for this LED manufacturing in the Philippines..I had bought LCD before and I sold it to my I want to buy Smart TV...with internet..muntik na ako bumili ng Samsung na made in Malaysia na 32 inches na smart tv...same like LED pero mern syang internet na parang computer..

    I am looking forward to see Sharp Philippines will make a good results on their investments with the Filipino sides...the technology is good, I boght one sharp LED monitor in Saudi and it is good technology...I wish they could upgrade immediately and caould create smart TV too like Samsung 32 incehs smart tv that has internet on it...

  4. OH!ngayong meron ng SHARP LED,LCD dapat tangkilikin natin ang sariling atin para mag create pa ang SHARP ng maraming trabaho.kahit nga ung PROMAC noong una medyo d maganda ang gawa nila pero dahil tinangkilik natin kaya ngayon maganda na at matibay pa ang gawa ng PROMAC at meron na rin silang LCD AT LED..GO GO SHARP AT PROMAC

  5. Hehehe pero talo na ang Sharp US technology sa innovation ng Korean Samsung ang LG. Da best sa display ang LG ang 3D nila pag manuod ka clear na clear. Ang bola pag ihagis dadaan pa halos sa mukha mo na parang wpede mo ng salu-in. Da best ang LG sa dispaly pero hindi da best sa Quality. Hindi kasi masyadong matibay ang LG compare sa samsung. Sa Samsung naman maganda at matibay compare sa LG pero ang 3D ng Samsung garbage parang kung panunuorin no oh parang picture na kin cut ng gunting .. pangit ang dispaly ng Samsung.

    Kung ako gusto mo satisfied sa Display sa na try ko lang LG da best kahit hindi matibay basta nag eenjoy ka naman sa maiksing sandali.

  10. Ang dapat sa Pinas ay bumaba ang mataas na high electricity power cost.

  11. I agree dapat bumaba anghigh Electricity Cost lalo na't hindi naman umaangat ang Sahod.

    Pero paki-usap naman huwag naman puro kayo makasarili. Our country is facing these hard challenges kaya huwag kayong opportunistic MERALCO and NAPOCOR.

    Kayo naman mga tao.. tulungan nyo ang Pilipinas... Kelangan nating umunlad na may dangal and secured people from external threat...

    Let's push our government to increase the defense budget 50,000 x fold para aabot tayo ng at least $10 Billion USD Defense budget yearly
