meet more successfully the competition on the
German market of shells coming from other regions ,f*i.
Venezuela, La Paz, Panama, Massaua *
Our continued endeavours to induce our shippers
to keep their consignments on a higher standard have so
far not leaded to satisfactory results. V/e therefore consider
it necessary to be in permanent personal contact with the
Bahrein Shell Shippers to give them assistance and
advice and to superviese their work at the spot here<>
So it is our desire to keep a permanent office in Bahrein
for the said purpose. The office to be a branch or
subagency of Messrs. F.Unduetsch & Co.(iraq)Ltd.,Baghdad,
which is a private limited Company of Iraq, under German
Management and cooperating with F.Unduetsch & Co.,Bremeno
The main business of the Bahrein Branch would
be : to work as Agents of F.Unduetsch & Co.,Bremen
in the business of pearl shells, to cooperate with
their shippers in Bahrein and to improve generally the
export of shells from this side .
At the same time the Bahrein firm to be established
would carry on the import of general merchandise which
was so far done by the above named two companies in
Baghdad and Bremen through direct communication with
their customers or by their travelling representatives.
Their main lines of import business in Bahrein are:
Hurricane Lanterns, Household Articles, Typewriters,
Radios,Sewing Machines, Photo Cameras & Films,Optical
Goods, Pharmaceutical Goods, Building Material such
as Water Pipes, Fittings, Iron Bars
We hope that these short informations might
explain the purpose of the branch we wish to establish
in Bahrein. Please be so kind as to give your attention
