Inchcape wins airport contract

INCHCAPE Special Markets' subsidiary, Khmer Agencies Co Ltd, won a Royal

Government contract late last month to supply new equipment in the renovation of

Pochentong Airport.

Inchcape, the British-based international services

and marketing group, will have two of its parent companies, Dutch-owned NKI and

Vanderlande, supply everything from conveyor belts to counters to X-ray

machines.

David Van, executive director of Khmer Agencies Co Ltd, said:

"We're going to have international standard modern facilities."

He

explained that the equipment will not be installed until the renovations which

began last month are complete.

"Civil Aviation decided to close and

renovate one section of the airport at a time so the installations will be

staggered."

Van said, "We hope to be finished for the inauguration of

Royal Air Cambodge in July. But there are so many companies involved in

renovating the premises, we're not really sure."

Van said that four or

five foreign companies were awarded the rest of the renovation contracts, he did

not think any Khmer-owned companies were involved.

Inchcape supplied the

equipment for the renovation of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City's airports last year.

Van said Inchcape has future plans to act as the local agent supplying

equipment for development projects financed by international

aid.

Inchcape, in Cambodia since 1992, had their subsidiary Khmer

Agencies registered in May 1993, so that they could become a direct distributor

of consumer goods.

Khmer Agencies subcontracted the Malaysian company

Pernama in 1992 to supply wine and spirits for PX, a duty free market set up for

the Untac peacekeeping force.
