Hilcres Builders’ Center started during the late 1970s when entrepreneurs, Ruben and Bernardita Patawaran established a tile outlet in Pampanga. It was initially named Pampanga Concrete Factors, located in Bgy. Sto. Rosario, Angeles City, and came to be known as the first tile provider in Pampanga. They later changed the business name to Hilcres Builders’ Center, which is a combination of the names of the couple’s children, Hilarion and Cresilda. Soon after, they moved to Henson St., Angeles City, where the main branch is currently located.
