Project Computer Services Enterprises 2

The Project Computer Services and Enterprises, a printing business in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay, is set to level up its operations with the Innovation Fund (iFund) received from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) IX, through the agency’s Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP).

A total of One Million Three Hundred Thirty-Nine Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (₱1,339,500) has been allocated to the firm for the procurement of a rotary heat press, sublimation printer, and a laser cutting and engraving machine.

Before DOST’s interventions, the firm purchased pre-formed plastic resource materials for decals, trophies, and trinkets. With the laser cutter and engraver in-place, the firm now does the cutting and pre-forming of plastic materials in-house, resulting in reduced operating expenses. Acquisition of the rotary heat press and sublimation printer enables the firm to provide new service lines, improve the quality of its services, and widen their market reach, among others.

As soon as full-scale operation is reached, this local printing business is expected to improve its productivity by at least 25% and generate at least 5 employment opportunities in the community.

SETUP assists micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), and identified industries to improve productivity through different technological interventions such as acquisition of innovative and cost-effective facilities; product development; process improvement; workforce capacity empowerment; and consultancy services, among others.

For more information on the SETUP Program, please call (062) 991-1024 / 0917 8011 887 (Regional Office) or 955-0825 (Zamboanga Sibugay), or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
