July 27, 2014 marked the celebration of a milestone reached by Roble Shipping Incorporated as it celebrated its 29th Founding Anniversary. On February 20, 1985, Engr. Jose “Pepe” Roble Jr. established Roble Shipping and the rest they say is history. The company celebrated on the 27th of July as it also marks the 67th birthday of the founder. It was held in Brgy. Tinago Gym and was well attended by guests and employees alike. The event also served as an awarding ceremony for the different sports activities that were held prior.
A mass was held as a thanksgiving for the achievements Roble Shipping Inc has attained. The program officially opened with remarks from the present president and CEO Mr. Jose Emery Roble. And in the midst of his speech, a moment of silence was held for the founder. The members of the Board of Directors present in the affair were introduced afterwards. Mr. Teodoro Franco Omega was called on as a slideshow presentation was shown on screen to commemorate the life and works of the late Engr. Jose Roble Jr.
There were several presentations as well as a live band while dinner was on going. Performances from Rean Corilla of the Ormoc office and the Main Office Angels were part of the affair including a repeat performance of the current cheerdance champions from M/V Wonderful Stars.
