The City of Imus is the province of Cavite’s de jure capital. With over 400,000 inhabitants, Imus is a first-class component city. It was only incorporated as a city in 2012.
Imus was a site of many significant events during the Spanish period. Settled by the Spanish in the early 1600s, the then town was established as a religious center.
During the Philippine Revolution against Spanish rule, two key successful battles occurred within the city: the Battle of Imus fought on September 3, 1896, and the Battle of Alapan on May 28, 1898. Imus also persevered like many of the Cavite towns during the American and Japanese occupations, and, as always, development erases the memories of the countless struggles. By 1977, Imus became the provincial capital of Cavite.
Imus is currently divided into 97 barangays. As the financial center of Cavite, Imus attracts many banks, financial institutions, and retail businesses. Its commercial/business district is located along Nueño Avenue. Aside from local companies and businesses, several foreign-owned businesses are found along the avenue. There are over a dozen malls in the city, which include properties from the Robinsons, SM, and Puregold brands.
The city also houses two industrial parks: the Imus Informal Industrial Estate and the Anabu Hills Industrial Estate. Adding the industrial output of other manufacturing companies, the city’s industrial capitalization is over PhP 1,300,000,000 in value. Industrial production is diverse, from automotive and electrical products to fixtures, processed foods, crafts, and garments.
