All Department Heads, Senior Managers and Consultants must now be intimately involved in the expansion works and other on-going off-season works for better combined operating, staffing and control plans of the future expanded raw house and refinery. Ideally, when the expansion equipment are eventually put into operation later, there should be a flawless, smooth and seamless connectivity with our work stations and equipment. The organization should be able to cope up with the additional capacity and equipment in the expanded work stations. Managers and department heads must now prepare their studies and plans for operating effectively the expanding raw house and refinery, coming up with needed organization development and employees training program.

CROP 2003-2004

On request of some Planters’ Associations and Cooperatives, we are pleased tp announce that BUSCO is extending its milling period for CY 03-04, up to Saturday, July 10, 2004.

However, this schedule is based on the assumption that there will be a daily cane delivery for milling of at least 5,000 TCD. If delivery will fall below this minimum, BUSCO may decide to end the milling season on short notice only.

We urge one and all hasten the harvesting and milling of their remaining millable canes before the above deadline.
