MARILAG Professional Security Services, Inc. (MPSSI) is a realized dream of one young couple, then 1Lt Nicolas O Banzuela Jr., a field officer of the Philippine Army’s elite Special Forces, and Ms Mary Grace C Banzuela, from a family of entrepreneurs. Endowed with strong business acumen, both dreamed of building their own company. In 2001, they started a security agency in Metro Cebu; however, it failed to gain growth after two years of operations.
With great COURAGE & DETERMINATION to succeed, unfazed by the challenges of the business, they moved on and operated in the booming city of Butuan in the CARAGA region.
Painstakingly, their operation thrived and expanded to nearby regions.
After eight years of gaining experience in security business operations, this couple-entrepreneur decided to spread their wings as an independent security service provider.
And in 2009, this growing security service company took on the name MARILAG, from the class name of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1995 of which then 1Lt Banzuela, now a Colonel, is a proud member of. It was later on incorporated in 2011.
“MARILAG” means “EVER SHINING;” today, MARILAG Professional Security Services, Inc. continues to shine amidst the darkness of trials and obstacles in its pursuit to become the premier security service provider worthy of the trust and confidence of its employees, guards, and specially its clients and community stakeholders.
MPSSI has, by now, regained foothold in Visayas and gaining grounds in Luzon, in its growing nationwide operation.
WE ENVISION to be the premier and most competitive security service provider throughout the country that is HIGHLY COMPETENT , PROFESSIONAL and DEDICATED.
WE ARE COMMITTED to continually endeavor to work with our clients, our people, and the communities in building a relatively safe and secure environment where both the government and the private sectors can be productive and successful in the pursuit of their respective tasks and undertakings.
