BUSINESSMAN Meneleo J. Carlos, Jr., a pioneer at Philippine chemical group Resins, Inc., died on May 17 at 95, the company said in a statement at the weekend

Mr. Carlos took over Resin after his father and founder Meneleo Carlos, Sr. retired in 1980. 

Aside from leading Resins, he also held top positions at the Federation of Philippine Industries, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Bishops-Businessmen’s Conference for Human Development.

He also participated in state-led multisectoral bodies including the negotiating panel for the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, Council of Advisers of Energy Affairs and Committee on Power Conservation and Demand Management. 

“He was recognized as the grandfather of the roll-on/roll-off project that facilitates seamless movement of people and goods from Mindanao to Luzon through Visayas,” Resins said. — Justine Irish D. Tabile
