Grupo Milícia – From professionals to professionals.

Grupo Milícia began its activity in 1994 and now manages 6 conjoined companies with which aspires to build a better and safer world.
With headquarters in Portugal and affiliates in Cape Verde, Angola, and Brazil, our motto, "From professionals to professionals", embodies the unique way we envision and carry out our activity throughout the world.

It is with both this eagerness and this motto always tied together that we have responded to the challenges presented nationally and internationally in two major areas:
• Security: Focused in military, police and security solutions.
• Safety: Focused in protection, rescue, firefighters, civil protection and others emergency services authorities.

Logo

We have constantly participated in the updating of the Forças Armadas Portuguesas as well as numerous organs of the Polícia Criminal, and also several agents of Proteção Civil.
We can state with pride we are regularly considered as strategic retailer partner of equipment by United Nations Peacekeeping Forces, as in most recent conflicts of Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo, Est-timor, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Our activity is also developed in international markets where most of our clients are governmental organizations or licensed institutions, to whom we always guarantee solutions with utmost trust and security.

Besides showing the level of the challenges we are willing to overcome, in themselves, these facts reflect the enormous responsibility and ethical conduct of Grupo Milícia.
For a proximity policy to all types of clients from institutional to individual type, we have stores opened to the general public in Portugal, Cape Verde, and Angola, where we sell uniforms, personal protection items amongst a vast list of other products.

We think the major asset of Grupo Milícia consists in the fact we study, plan and develop integrated solutions tailored to the necessities of each client. We want our clients to have their expectations surpassed, for them to benefit in the best way from the products we sell, and mostly, to have full confidence in the goods and services they buy.
This is why we have a whole group of experts and instructors from different areas of expertize with proven resumes and professional experience.
Frequently, we join together equipment and products sales with a high quality professional training. Our programs have been taught in safety, security and other diverse operational branches in countries like Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde and Iraq.

Grupo Milícia is the only Portuguese group, which, besides trading more than 80 brands and 5000 products, is able to study, plan and guarantee safe solutions tailored to whatever our clients are looking for, going often beyond their expectations. The business volume of recent years and the satisfaction of our clients makes us believe that you will find with us competitive deals with the highest ratio of value for money.
We believe the thousands of professionals we served over the course of 20 years of activity trust the products and services we provide, and today they are more capable of contributing to our dream of a better and safer world to live in.

Our Origins

Grupo Milícia was founded by António Amaro and Susana Amaro in 1994, Porto. António Amaro was a paratrooper who wanted to contribute to the modernization of uniforms and equipment of Forças Armadas Portuguesas. Therefore, the company started very soon to offer a wide variety of equipment superior in quality than the one used by the Portuguese Army at that time.

One of first investments of Grupo Milícia was the design and manufacture of uniforms that better suited the necessities of Portuguese troops, in their assorted missions. The innovation brought together with know-how allowed the company to become a partner of the Portuguese Army in their peace mission of 1996 in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and later in East-Timor, and Kosovo.

Despite the perennial bond to Forças Armadas Portuguesas, organs of Polícia Criminal, and Protecção Civil Agents, Grupo Milícia focuses today the majority of its business in international markets. Today we are a group of 6 companies which operate all over the world with the unique and unifying motto "From Professionals to Professionals".

Mission and Vision

Our biggest wish is to continue contributing to a better world.

To achieve that aim Grupo Milícia constantly dedicates itself to present integrated solutions beyond the mere trade of state of the art equipment. We connect it with training and with excellent yet low profile services.

We want to continuing to be an international private company extremely competitive, representing several market leader brands and conserving always the ability to develop products and solutions tailored to the specific necessities of each client. This ability is something that distinguishes us so greatly that many times we are the only source capable to fulfill the specific necessities of each client, offering always the best options of value for money and security.

Our motto "From Professionals to Professionals" is one of our highest values. It is more than a business and commercial value. In fact, it is a mirror of our very own professional ethics and it reproduces our responsible way of working and maintaining our leadership in the business.

World Map

Where We Are

Our headquarters is in Vila Nova de Gaia where we own our facilities complex built from scratch, which holds the following departments:

• Administration;
• Human Resources, management and control;
• Commercial Department;
• Retail Area;
• Showroom for institutional clients;
• Project management, assistance and training;

There is also a meeting room, a licensed dog shelter for breeding and training, and a warehouse with a vast list of products in stock ready for worldwide delivery.

In Lisbon, Cape Verde, Angola and Brazil we have stores, opened to the general public, retailing uniforms, personal protection equipment and a lot of other products.

But the facilities do not reflect "Where We Are". Only through a continuing collaboration with our clients we are able to understand in detail the reality of each country or remote location where we operate.

The greater skills of mobilization and adaptation, which distinguishes us, allow us to rapidly be in any place of the 5 continents assuring the highest quality in the services offer. Our teams are where our clients most need them to be.

 

There is nothing more gratifying than to know we are today building a more pacific world to live in tomorrow.

Our Teams

Our teams are made with extraordinary people. They are arguably the best asset of Grupo Milícia due to their impressive array of knowledge and experience they have accumulated, and because they provide in the field, directly to our client the excellence of our services.
With high skills of resiliency, adaptation and qualification our collaborators have the most distinguishable resumes not only from the training and education perspective but also from a perspective of professional experience acquired in different contexts. Almost all of our collaborators have international experience in war theater operations, peace support, humanitarian support, logistics, assistance and training, chiefly in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, east-Timor, Afghanistan, Iraq, Cape Verde, Angola, Mozambique and Brazil.

Beyond previous training and experience of its collaborators, Grupo Milícia strives to guarantee their knowledge is always up to date by providing them regularly with training and education of the highest standard, including visits to countries with teaching credentials in diverse areas.
Every collaborator is clearly united in our commitment and shares the same values of Grupo Milícia and they have an enormous pride in our motto "From Professionals to Professionals" too.
We trust in our teams, because we choose the best, because they are highly qualified and experienced with proven records. And that allows us to guarantee to our clients that the best services are delivered, no matter the time, the place or challenge.

Clients

One of the secrets of the success of Grupo Milícia is the attention to detail we invest in each of our clients. Without the trust each client confides in Grupo Milícia, it wouldn't be possible to implement the values of this company with success in the shape of service provider, equipment seller and professional educator that we are.
Since our establishment we have been working with relevant institutions whether private or governmental, not only in Portugal but worldwide, particularly in Africa, where our teams have vast experience and where Grupo Milícia has acquired a unique knowledge with each mission it accomplishes.

Grupo Milícia seeks to know in a detailed and thorough way the necessities of each client. Developing a proximity kind of work, it presents always the best solutions.
It is with pride we maintain long lasting relationships with our clients, which reflects a renewal of the trust each client confides in us. We feel it's our obligation to esteem, preserve and return that trust.

The nature of our main clients:

• Ministries of Defense.
• Ministries of Internal Affairs.
• Ministries of Interior.
• Ministries of Justice.
• Ministries of the Environment.

• Ministries of Health.
• Private Security Companies.
• Civil protection Agents.
• Non-Governmental organizations.
• Banks.

From professionals to professionals, this is the only ethical way to endure in our trade.
