Mission & Vision
C&E Publishing, Inc. was established in 1993 to engage primarily in the business of reprinting and distributing foreign medical and science books with acquired copyright licenses from international publishers.
With the advent of the 21st century, the company embarked on a publishing thrust and started expanding its range of titles by inviting local authors to write and publish books on various disciplines, including medicine, nursing, psychology, and law. It also published locally authored textbooks for basic education as well as trade books.
As C&E’s publication of local titles grew, the reprinting of widely prescribed foreign titles for basic and higher education and the importation of books from reputable international publishers also flourished. By doing so, it has managed to produce up-to-date, premium-quality educational products to address the needs of the reading public in general and clients from the academe in particular. Thus, C&E has positioned itself at the forefront of the Philippine book industry.
FUTURE OF LEARNING
Being at the forefront of the industry has placed C&E in the perfect position to drive Philippine education to greater heights, specifically towards the future of education in the era of IR 4.0. In a rapidly changing world, C&E has carried with its name the mission to Be Adaptive and has continuously offered innovative solutions suited for 21st Century learning.
Responding to this need became one of C&E’s driving forces as it stepped up as an innovator and offered new learning solutions to the market, including digital and e-learning platforms, hardware and robotics tools, and Makerspace learning venues. Throughout the years, C&E has played its key part in reimagining the future of education through its comprehensive offering of innovative learning and teaching tools.
