The HHSC will cater to the administrative functions of the former Headquarters and Headquarters Service Battalion (HHSBN), now the 12th Installation Management Battalion (IMB), absorbed by the Installation Management Command, Philippine Army (IMCOM, PA).

Lt. Col. Elzhoor D. Jimlah, the former Chief of the Division Special Service Office (DSSO), assumed as the first Commanding Officer of the newly activated unit. He was grateful to the Tabak leadership for trusting his capability to man the Company.

“The officers and men of the HHSC will spare no effort to ensure that we contribute to the mission accomplishment of the 1st Infantry Division,” he said.

Meanwhile, Col. William George S. Cordova, the Division Inspector General and keynote speaker, mentioned how the Philippine Army is evolving into a mature and credible organization vis-à-vis the never-ending change. He said that with creating the new unit, one must expect the birth pain that comes with it.

“The Division can now focus on its operational function, its core competency—warfighting—and let the Headquarters and Headquarters Service Company take care of the administrative functions,” added the Inspector General. “Look out for the welfare of your men while you accomplish your mission.”
