Newrest SOS’s roots in the Philippines dates back to 1979 when SOS was founded by the current CEO, Louis Paul Heussaff to provide logistics services to the oil exploration industry in the Philippines and Malaysia.
Over the years, SOS provided logistics, manpower, catering, and business services to the largest drilling projects in the Philippines, namely, projects helmed by: Exxon Mobil, Shell Philippines and Oxy Petroleum. As the company grew, it evolved with projects in different sectors including, power and energy, petrochemicals, mining, construction and engineering, among others. As it established a name for itself, SOS entered the manpower field, and now provides skilled labor to the oil exploration, crewing and drilling industries all over the world. Clients include, Transocean, Ensco, Noble Drilling and many more.
In an effort to grow the company into contract catering, remote site services, international expansion, and other related fields, SOS brought in two groups as equity partners to invest in the company. The Miascor group, the leading Philippine airport services company with operations in 7 major airports, and a provider of ground handling, inflight catering, and cargo logistics, joined forces with The Newrest Group, present in 46 countries, a provider of catering services and remote site management of large infrastructure and logistics projects and is the only company that is active in all catering and related segments.
Today their Joint Venture is called Newrest SOS, a company that has embarked on expanding its presence in the Philippines and in the World by providing people, support and all-encompassing business solutions for the energy sector and various other industries. We look forward to working with you in the years ahead.
