THE AMH NAME
The name AMH was derived from the letters AM+MH = AMH. The letters AM stand for Alejandro Melchor (1900-1947), an exemplary engineer, teacher, soldier and statesman. A well-loved teacher of the UP College of Engineering, he later on organized the Corps of Professors of the Philippine Military Academy, and served as cabinet secretary for military affairs of President Osmeña during World War II.
The letters MH stand for Melchor Hall, UP Diliman’s College of Engineering building which upholds high academic standards and social ideals. These three letters remind AMH engineers, staff and shareholders that their consultancy company is named after a great Filipino engineer, and a great institution.
