Born in the post-war reconstruction boom of the late 1940s, Jackbilt pioneered high-strength load-bearing concrete hollow blocks that became the gold standard for strength and durability.
Almost all houses and commercial buildings built in the Philippines during the post-war years were erected with Jackbilt products.

1948. Jackbilt Corporation is established by six American partners headed by Jack Russell. Its first home is in Panaderos, Sta. Ana, Manila. First major project: Clark Air Base facilities in Angeles, Pampanga.

1951. Fuelled by the continuing post-war construction boom, Jackbilt transfers to a larger plant with higher capacity in Quiapo, Manila.

1955. Demand for Jackbilt’s high-strength blocks necessitates another expansion. The company relocates to a larger plant site on J.P. Rizal St. in Mandaluyong City.

1978. The Ortigas-Ramirez group acquires Jackbilt and installs Atty. Joaquin O. Ramirez as Chairman of the Board and President.

1996. Jackbilt Concrete Block, Inc. and its trade name Jackbilt are sold to Jackbilt Industries Inc. (JII), a company controlled by Evaristo Narvaez, now the chairman of the board and chief executive officer.

1999 (two years after the Asian financial crisis). Rising property rates in Manila and the decline in the property development sector cause Jackbilt to relocate its plant nearer its resources of raw materials – Mabalacat, Pampanga.

2008. On the cusp of a new construction boom, Jackbilt Industries, Inc. (JII) puts up a new Concrete Block Plant in Bacolor, Pampanga to house a new Besser Vibrapac CHB Machine.

2011. Jackbilt invests in a new Span Stress Production Plant to produce modular housing components and systems such as pre-cast, prestressed concrete beams.
