ANHAM will be using APPF for Afghanistan security requirements

We are excited to be working with the APPF for our security needs in Afghanistan

ANHAM FZCO, a leading contracting firm that provides services around the world, announced that they will be using the Afghan Public Protection Force (APPF) for security services in Afghanistan. This is being facilitated by Afghan Fleet and Group Services (AFGS) for the benefit of ANHAM. This constitutes the first time that an organization is cooperating with the APPF for security services in Afghanistan and marks an important milestone in the ongoing transition from private security companies to the Afghan-led APPF.

“We are excited to be working with the APPF for our security needs in Afghanistan,” said Mr. Abul Huda Farouki, CEO and Chairman of ANHAM FZCO.

ANHAM has been instrumental in mentoring AFGS to provide services to ANHAM's operations. AFGS will play a key role in facilitating this new standard for the safety and security for projects in Afghanistan.

The APPF was created to take over security responsibility after President Hamid Karzai ordered private security companies to be disbanded in August of 2010. The APPF is focusing now on taking over security responsibility for development projects, convoys and commercial businesses. By March 2013, all security for International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) bases and construction sites is scheduled to transition to the APPF.

“ANHAM prides itself on working with only the most reliable companies,” said Mr. A. H. Farouki, “We are very pleased with the work we have done with AFGS over the past several years and look forward to continuing that success in using them along with APPF for our security requirements in ANHAM’s Afghanistan operations.”
