2ND GENERATION: ANTONIO C. DELGADO

An innovative businessman, Antonio brought many developments to the Philippines; most notable of which was the caltex floating station, adapted from leftover war boats, that delivered supplies to ships waiting in the harbor, which was the first of its kind in the world. He first established acd, inc. in 1947 and Delgado brothers, Inc. (Delbros) in 1949 after which a whole range of businesses followed in several industries such as logistics, brokerage and hotels. Eventually, he became the Philippine Ambassador to the Vatican alongside his passion for the Boy Scouts where he became the first Asian Chairman of the world committee.
