History

The company began in 1834 with the formation of a distillery owned by Casa Róxas, a partnership between Domingo Róxas and Antonio de Ayala.[2] The distillery was the maker of Ginebra San Miguel which was later acquired by La Tondeña, Inc. in 1929.

In the late 19th century, Ayala participated in the construction of the Puente de Ayala (Ayala Bridge) over the Pasig River in Manila. Built of wood in 1872, the bridge was reconstructed in steel in 1908 and became the first steel bridge in the Philippines. In 1888, Ayala introduced the first tramcar service in the Philippines. Ayala was responsible for the development of Makati as the financial district of Manila and the Philippines after World War II.

In April 2010, FinanceAsia named Ayala Corporation as the best-managed company in the Philippines, as well as best for corporate governance and best for corporate social responsibility.[3]

In 2011, Ayala began building its renewable energy portfolio, beginning with a joint venture with Mitsubishi for solar power, the purchase of the iconic Northwind farm for wind power, and its joint venture with Sta. Clara Power for run-of-the-river hydro power. Ayala will contribute 1000 MW to the Philippine power supply, by 2015.[4] In 2015, FinanceAsia awarded Ayala Corporation as the Best Managed Company in the Philippines in the 15th annual survey of top public companies in Asia.
