  1. Hi there everone,

    I am just looking for some help with a bit of Market Research. I am wanting to know where I can either find a list of or be given a list of the foreign companies working at Camp Bastion or even have bases just outside the wire.

    Can anyone help me with this request?

    Thanks for your help in advance

    Cheers!
     
  2. Well there's that Polish hand car wash company in the car park outside the main gate for starters.
     
  3. Haha, good luck with that!
     
  4. I'm sure there is a Suzuki moped dealer as well, he's got a special on servicing at the moment.
     
  5. Habitat used to have the rug shop on the main road, but I think they've had to sell up.

  6. When I was there a few months ago one of 5 SCOTS companies looked a bit 'foreign' with all the Fijians.
     
  7. Ever since the "Allied carpets" moved in.
     
  8. 'D & V Weight Control' does a thriving trade.
     
  9. And the fact that the "Ancient Afghan Kilim" range turned out to be cheapo, modern carpets left in the road for the traffic to pass over and "age" them. Bloody robbers.
     
  10. Was this one of your airborne Operation Diversity trips, Fally?

    Anyway, in Bastion? Lots and lots of companies, both Afghan and others, ranging in size from KBR through Turners right down to the EFI and Pizza Hut - as well as CONDO contractors, etc.
