JII is lead by its president, Mr. Eduardo R. Ilao, a professional Electrical Engineer, a Certified Energy Manager, and a fully licensed general building and specialty contractor. Under his leadership, JII recorded unprecedented growth during the boom years of 1988 to 1992. This success has enabled JII to diversify and to invest in other business activities that would insulate it from the downturns of the economy. Thus, growth has been sustained up to the present time.
At present, JII has already expanded its line of business to the installation, service, maintenance, and procurement of the most advance medical equipment available in the world today. With its intricate knowledge in electrical, electronics, mechanical, pneumatic, and hydraulic systems, coming from previous experiences, JII made a conscious decision to cross-train its engineers and technicians to be able to specify, install, service and maintain sophisticated medical and radiology equipment. These new equipments use cutting-edge technologies in both computer hardware and software, as well as, the latest miniaturized electro-mechanical systems using state-of-the-art pneumatic and/or hydraulic systems technology.
