Situated along a significant portion of the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Philippine archipelago is vulnerable to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Such seismic activities can be catastrophic. Yet, you can do your part in preparing your family and your home for when a natural disaster occurs. With the most extensive product selection of trusted local and international brands with high-grade features and superior quality, Wilcon Depot will help you gear up and build big ideas.

Wilcon Depot strives to build, improve, and refine Filipino homes for a sustainable and comfortable life. Started in 1977 as a 60-square meter hardware store, the brand is now a household name in the home and construction supply industry.

Committing to add value to the lives of Southern Ilocanos

On July 22, 2022, Wilcon Depot made Bantay, Ilocos Sur the home of its 78th store nationwide. The Philippines’ leading home improvement and construction supply retailer saw a great opportunity and potential businesses to thrive as the historically rich municipality of Bantay aspires to become a business hub.

Wilcon Depot Bantay has a total of almost 7,000 square meters of selling area, housing vast product selections ranging from tiles, sanitarywares, plumbing, hardware, electrical materials, furniture, home interior, appliances, and other DIY items. Ilocanos can now shop and have all access to Wilcon’s limitless home and building products and solutions.

Exclusive and in-house brands include GROHE and KOHLER Sanitarywares; FRANKE Kitchen Systems; POZZI Bathroom Solutions, Sanitarywares, Whirlpool Bathtubs, Ceramics, and Shower Enclosures; ARISTON Water Heaters; GEBERIT Monolith Puro; MACROAIR HVLS Fans; RUBI Tile Cutter; and REHAU Premium PPR pipes. The newly opened store also offers premium quality Italian, Spanish, and Asian tile brands among others.

Opening doors to high-quality home improvement and construction needs

The grand launch of the Wilcon Depot Bantay began with a motorcade, graced by numerous valued suppliers and industry partners, along nearby barangays. The ribbon cutting ceremony was led by Wilcon Depot President and CEO Lorraine Belo-Cincochan, SEVP-COO Rosemarie Bosch-Ong, and the government officials of Bantay, Ilocos Sur.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Bantay, Ilocos Sur. Wilcon Depot is here to assist Ilocanos by enhancing the accessibility to the top and trusted local and international brands for home building supplies,” Belo-Cincochan expressed during the launch.

To date, Wilcon Depot has 18 branches in Metro Manila and 60 stores in key cities and municipalities across the archipelago, where 69 are depot stores and 9 are home essentials stores.
