Beyond energy supply, MPower extends a suite of value-adding services through Meralco subsidiaries like MServ, Meralco Power Academy, Radius, and Bayad, enhancing JX Metals' operational efficiency and sustainability.



MPower, a subsidiary of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), is recognized for its competitive renewable energy (RE) portfolio. This partnership with JX Metals builds on an impressive roster of MPower’s clientele.

Since its inception in 1998, JX Metals Philippines Inc. has been a leader in producing high-end Treated Roll Copper Foil and Electro Deposited Copper Foil for the electronics industry in Southeast Asia, China, Korea, and Japan.



Their shift towards renewable energy in 2022 underscores their dedication to sustainability, aligning perfectly with MPower’s expanding renewable energy capacity.


With this renewed partnership, JX Metals and MPower set a precedent for industrial sustainability, paving the way for a greener future in the electronics manufacturing sector.
