Asiagate is the brainchild of Andrew de los Reyes who established his roots in technology just after college in the San Francisco Bay Area. Andrew was one of the pioneers in what was then a game changer in the world of computing. Together with two partners, he set up Able Microcomputers in Ralston Avenue, Belmont, Ca., USA, providing PC assembly, desktop computer and software distribution, software training in accounting and Computer Aided Design (AutoCad), WAN and LAN design and deployment, just as tech giants Microsoft and Apple were revving up in the 80s to change the world with their visions.
Upon his return to the Philippines to help the family business, Andrew’s love for technology continued to evolve. He was highly instrumental in the development of world-class Gateway Business Park, a 180 hectare industrial estate in Gen. Trias, Cavite, Philippines, as the Silicon Valley of the East. As President, he helped his father, industrialist Geronimo B. de los Reyes, Jr., transform the third-class municipality into one of the most dynamic and profitable local governments in the region.
Together with Geronimo, Andrew led the campaign to establish the Philippines as the most technically and financially viable site for international investors seeking to put up offshore manufacturing facilities. With his background in Silicon Valley, Andrew sought out—and successfully planted in Philippine soil, the most prominent names in the semiconductor industry such as Intel, Analog Devices and Cypress Semiconductors. As of 2017, companies in Gateway account for the highest level of exports out of the Philippines.
In 1998, recognizing the impact of the Internet in the way people communicate and do business, Andrew, with his wife, Liza, established Asiagate as one of the very first Internet Service Providers serving retail and corporate clients. Its continued growth, powered by a team of seasoned and dedicated professionals, has deepened its expertise into Internet-based technologies.
Today, Asiagate is one of the most reliable and sought after IT solutions provider in the Philippines.
