By this time we rented a workshop in Mina Sulman Industrial Area from International Agencies Company (INTERCOL). Martin their General Manager had called us up to look at his Mercedes and we ended renting the workshop and maintaining a lot of their vehicles for them.
The workshop was located just on the south side of Manama city and was around 8,000 square feet in total and was originally a storage warehouse. We build an office facility inside and added a front pedestrian door and also added a car lift, wash bay, toilets and spare parts area. It was basic but serviceable.
We did not have a showroom, as Porsche was virtually unknown in our market and Porsche AG said we could not support one, as their projections for car sales were still very conservative for Bahrain at around six (6) cars per annum and we were selling all the cars we could get.
