True to its founder's vision, Consolidated Aggregates has been aggressive on the construction industry, constantly strengthening its manufacturing capability in order to keep up with each decade's new challenges as the following describes:
- In 1981, it set up a crushing plant in Bulacan to provide its batching plants with aggregate raw materials.
- In 1988, it relocated its ready-mixed concrete batching plant from Balintawak to a larger facility in Libis, Quezon City, in order to be closer to the heart of the construction boom - Ortigas, Pasig City and Makati City.
- In 1989, seeking to increase its capacity, the company acquired Peterbuilt Corp.'s ELBA barching plant in Taguig.
CAPI's continuous growth during the past two decades can be attributed to the competence of its management. Its list of customers from both the private and government sectors are living testimonies to the reliability of its service and product quality. Its success encouraged newcomers in the industry, which resulted to overcrowding of the ready-mixed concrete industry during Asian currency crisis in the late 1990's.
CAPI showed its resilience by toning down its batching plants and entering into tolling arrangements using the excess capacity of newer and more modern batching plants. It focused its operation on the cash generating crushing plant business. It is now the main source of aggregates, batching plants and asphalt plants in the Northern provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga, in addition to its Metro Manila clients.
