On February 2, 1968, the founder, Ricardo Datu Policarpio established R.D.POLICARPIO & CO., INC.
R.D.POLICARPIO started as a contractor for the U.S. Government military facility at Clark Air Base, Pampanga. The first board of directors composed of himself, his parents, the late Venancio Policarpio Sr. and Marina Policarpio, and his sisters, Aurora Policarpio and Jesusa Policarpio. His work included mere grass cutting and trimming of trees. His office was a 1956 Chevy where he had an old typewriter as the only office equipment. His men, armed with locally made bolos had only a small pick up to round the vast military complex. With Ricardo Policarpio’s sheer determination, and his commitment to finish his projects, he was able to earn the approval of the Americans. Painting, minor repairs, and other odd jobs followed, and there was no way but up for the founder, winning one bid after another, each project better than the last.
