he IPM Group began in the early 1980s initially as a construction firm and has since expanded into waste management, real estate development and information technology. It also owns a world-class engineered sanitary landfill facility in Morong, Rizal, which serves the waste disposal requirements of the province and select private corporations. The Morong facility has since expanded to include a materials recovery and composting facility which pushed BEST closer to its goal of becoming an integrated waste management solution provider to the local government units’ perennial garbage problem from collection to disposal to recycling. BEST was tapped by the national government to help in the massive cleanup of Metro Manila during the aftermath of the devastation left by typhoon Ondoy in 2009. To maximize the efficient use of its massive equipment resources, IPM established IPM Realty & Development Corp., which has undertaken successful projects Northfields Executive Village in Malolos, Bulacan (120 hectares), Northfields Providence, and Northfields Rosewoods and Residential Parque (40 hectares), Tagaytay Tropical Greens (80 has.), Woodhills Residences in Tagaytay, Lee Gardens Towers in Shaw Mandaluyong City and economic and affordable housing also in Bulacan and Rizal.
