PHILNOS is a product of Nihon Overseas Services Co. Ltd. (NOSCO), a Japanese engineering design and construction company. NOSCO was established by Mr. Yoshiyuki Tsunoda in November 1987 in Tokyo, Japan.
Nosco provides skilled manpower for many of the leading petrochemical and heavy industrial construction companies in Japan. Through its close relationship with Japanese engineering and contracting corporations, it has been able to obtain contracts in other countries around the world.
In 1991, NOSCO established a branch in Manila to recruit and train Filipino workers for its overseas clients. It was working through manpower recruitment agencies recognized by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration – the Government regulatory agency that oversees manpower recruitment for projects in foreign countries. To institute better management control and expedite the recruitment and deployment process, NOSCO established its own recruitment agency specially serving NOSCO clients. Thus, PHILNOS was born. The company was licensed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration after being given recognition on September 14, 1994.
After just over a year in operation of PHILNOS, GROUP has brought employment to Filipinos, seeking overseas jobs, deploying thousands of Overseas Contract Workers (OCW’s) to various parts of the world (i.e. Nigeria, Algeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Bahrain, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Pakistan, Bangladesh).
We, PHILNOS have since expanded our manning projects to other countries, working with global contractors to supply a broad range of engineers, skills and crafts.
