The National Maintenance Training and Security Company Limited is a fully owned state enterprise which was registered in 1979. At this time it was known as the Secondary Schools Maintenance Training and Security Company Limited (MTS), and enjoyed a relationship with an American company (which had a seven percent (7%) shareholding at the time) who provided management services through hired consultants. The then Government of Trinidad and Tobago had embarked on the construction of nine (9) secondary schools and a decision was taken to provide adequate maintenance and security services for these facilities. Out of this need, MTS commenced operations and the company's name was changed to the National Maintenance Training and Security Company Limited. It also had its Memorandum of Association amended to provide services to customers other than government or government agencies in line with the government's thrust for all state enterprises to be financially viable and self sufficient.
The organization is structured by an appointed Board of Directors, managed by a Chief Executive Officer and Divisional Managers who are responsible for areas such as maintenance, engineering, security, agribusiness, marketing, private sector development, training and human resources and finance. The company has over 5,400 employees and operates in over 200 separate locations ranging from Cedros to Charlotteville. Our offices are regionalised and spread throughout Trinidad and Tobago, to enable prompt response to customers’ needs.
Today, MTS is proud that we have customers who include private sector organizations, major government ministries and quasi-state organizations.
