Medtecs set up its manufacturing facility in the Philippines in 1989. It has chosen the Philippines to be the site of its first plant to leverage the country’s English-speaking and well-educated workforce.

Medtecs International Corporation Limited, a producer and distributor of personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical consumables for the global healthcare industry, launched its products that include 3-ply FDA-approved face masks, medical isolation gowns, uniforms, coveralls and other new products. Timely to the needs of not only Filipinos but other nationalities in this time of pandemic, most of these products are made in its factory in Bataan while others are in Taiwan.  

“We’re very happy that during the pandemic, we’re able to supply these items to the Philippines, to our partners, and our customers, to make sure everyone who works and comes home with our PPE,” said William Yang, CEO and executive director of Medtecs International Corporation Limited.

Medtecs set up its manufacturing facility in the Philippines in 1989. It has chosen the Philippines to be the site of its first plant to leverage the country’s English-speaking and well-educated workforce.

The face mask the firm is producing is the 3-ply flat style or the three-layer fabric, where the middle layer or the filtration base determines the kind of protection level that will be provided. “A good quality face mask should filter out bacteria, and viruses,” notes Yang, and recommended the use of at least a medical-grade face mask for protection, which means 95% bacterial filtration efficiency.”  

Yang also said that in the production of face masks, they use two sets of testing equipment as they put a lot of emphasis in the quality of their products. He also said they are now producing face masks in different colors and designs so customers can stay in fashion. They also customize their products to meet requirements of interested customers and to come up with different masks or PPEs.

For the coming months, Medtecs will introduce new products. It will have a speedy test kit which will give out results within 30 minutes. Another product that will be launched is one that will boost immunity to fight COVID-19 on a daily basis, and a portable or handheld ultrasound that is being installed in Android phone that can be used anytime. It also has a choker, an anti-viral product which has 100 times more ions than others and it reduces discomfort.   

Medtecs products are available online, on its website and Facebook.

Medtecs is also doing some efforts to save the environment. The mask they produce doesn’t smell even if it is used in five to seven days as it kills bacteria, and thus, reduces pollution by 85%. It also launched reusable isolation gowns and coveralls to reduce the plastic it uses.

Red Bull Dance Your Style Qualifiers held in Davao

Published

on

The competition was sizzling hot at the Red Bull Dance Your Style Qualifiers in Davao. The best dancers from all over the region brought their A-game, delivering performances that dazzled the audience, who wielded the power to choose the competition’s winner.

Red Bull Dance Your Style is a unique, global 1-on-1 street dance competition that brings out each dancer’s individuality and creativity, and celebrates the diversity of their dance styles. Unlike other dance competitions, Red Bull Dance Your Style challenges dancers to show off their improvisational expertise and freestyle dance moves to unpredictable songs.

For its third year in the Philippines, Red Bull Dance Your Style extended the search for the country’s top dance talents to Mindanao. This culminated in the first-ever qualifiers in Davao held last June 29 at Club Echelon in Davao City.

Sixteen dancers from the region took to the dance floor and unleashed their impressive moves and creativity with REPETER (Peter Nugas III), MJ (MJ Mejos), MSTR PIECE (Regie Harris Lavestre), and R3DMAN (Edrian Alcaria) dancing their way to the Top 4. In the end, R3DMAN took home the trophy. His unique style and prowess left the audience in awe, earning him the title. Both R3DMAN and MSTR PIECE, as first and second place winners respectively, secured their spots in the National Finals.

“It’s very overwhelming,” said R3DMAN. “I didn’t know what to feel. Earlier, when the champion was called, I was dazed. It felt like a dream for me.”

R3DMAN admitted he was not fully prepared for the competition as he had limited time to get ready. “The preparation was really quick; I only had two days to prepare because of school and work.” He also shared that he rarely participated in dance battles, preferring to choreograph rather than perform. “This is actually my fourth battle, which is why I still consider myself a rookie,” he added. “What I did was believe in myself and enjoy the moment.”

His win is not the end as he gears up for the next round of the competition. R3DMAN shared that one of the things he wants to work on is his endurance. “The preparation will be intense. I feel like I’m going to battle with myself as well for consistency, which is what I really need to work on.”

Present at the event was dance consultant Lema Diaz of the Philippine All-Stars. “I’ve been coming to Davao since 2006 to 2008, I know how great the dance artists are in Davao and Mindanao,” she remarked. “As a dance consultant, we make sure that we visit Davao or any place in Mindanao to find the best representative for the Philippines in the World Finals in Mumbai.”

Diaz claimed that R3DMAN’s performance throughout the competition was truly one of the highlights of the Davao qualifier. “Seeing him live, seeing him go through rounds, just the mastery of his own style is there,” said Diaz. “He can put his own personality, the ease of listening to the music, and the conversation he has with the audience and opponent.”

She added, “He’s really entertaining to watch, which is why I’m excited for Manila to witness him, for the whole Philippines to witness him, to have an exchange with the other dancers, because it’s going to be inspiring.”

As the Davao qualifier wraps up, the excitement builds for the next round of qualifiers happening in Cebu on July 13 at APEX Super Club. Diaz conveyed her enthusiasm for the upcoming rounds, saying, “(Dancers) elevate in a week, two weeks, three, and four weeks. What more in a year?” She added, “That’s why I’m so excited to see how high the level has become and how many people are coming because we’re growing.” Diaz also expressed her eagerness to see both new faces and familiar ones returning to compete on the dance floor.

Along with Diaz, fans of the competition are eagerly awaiting more incredible performances and unforgettable moments as dancers from across the Philippines vie for their chance to shine at the world stage.

Don’t miss a beat! Stay tuned for the next round of qualifiers and be sure to catch the Red Bull Dance Your Style Philippines National Finals on September 7. This is an event you truly won’t want to miss! Follow the Red Bull Dance Your Style Philippines journey to the World Finals in India on November 9, 2024.
