MANILA, Philippines — Villar-owned Golden Haven Memorial Parks Inc. is building a cutting-edge crematorium facility in Zamboanga that would redefine end-of-life services.
This latest addition to the company’s property portfolio is not only Zamboanga City’s first privately owned and operated crematorium facility, but also introduces the use of two imported crematory machines, significantly reducing smoke emissions during the cremation process.
This proactive step demonstrates the company’s commitment to environmentally sustainable practices that will benefit the community in the long run.
Marking a significant milestone for the company, the new crematorium is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2024. By establishing this facility, Golden Haven aims to provide a more accessible and efficient choice for individuals and families in need of cremation services.
This not only alleviates logistical difficulties but also offers a sense of relief during what can be a challenging time, ensuring that end-of-life services are more readily available to the community.
“Golden Haven constantly strives to reshape the landscape of death care services in the country,” said Golden Haven president Emy Lustado.
“While we’ve proudly developed the most beautiful themed memorial parks in the country, we’re equally committed to upholding environmental responsibility in all our endeavors, including the introduction of our new crematorium.”
Golden Haven, a subsidiary of publicly listed Golden MV Holdings Inc. of the Villar family, offers premium death care services and prime memorial lots. It is considered as one of the most lucrative real estate investments, with an average 20 percent annual value appreciation.
