About Us


PRIMEX President and CEO Ms. Elvira C. Ablaza was handpicked by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) as one of the speakers for the High Level Panel of the 10th Business Opportunities Fair at the ADB Headquarters on 27 March 2019.

PRIMEX is a highly reputable Filipino management consulting firm with broad-ranging skills and expertise, a quality performance record with international financial institutions (IFIs) and public sector clients, and fully developed in-house technical, management, and support staff and facilities.

Since its founding on 7 August 1989, the Company has built an enviable reputation with international financing institutions (IFIs) and public and private sector clients in the Philippines and overseas, based on its consistently outstanding performance in the design and management of development projects.

In the last 11 of its 30 years of experience, PRIMEX has been consistently ranked among the Top 3 Philippine consulting firms doing business with ADB in terms of volume and value of technical assistance contracts.

From 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2012, PRIMEX was the No. 1 Philippine consulting firm in ADB in terms of value of technical assistance contracts and No. 4 in loan-funded contracts. From 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2013, PRIMEX kept its No. 1 ranking for technical assistance, and its ranking for loan-funded projects improved to No. 3.

In April 2017, PRIMEX was named as the No. 1 consultant from the Philippines involved in consulting services contracts under ADB loan, grant, and technical assistance projects from 2013 to 2017 (see ADB’s 2017 Philippine Fact Sheet).
