Alaska Structures, Inc. announced the opening of its new office in Kabul, Afghanistan - a move that further expands the company's growing global reach. The new AKS office is located in Kabul Green Village Compound, just off Supreme Road, Kabul, Afghanistan.

Kabul provides many strategic advantages for supporting military efforts in the Middle East. Since 1999, AKS has fielded over 30,000 Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) military shelter systems. In 2009 alone, over 5,000 shelters and 5,000 Alaska Environmental Control Units (ECUs) were supplied to US and NATO forces in Afghanistan. "The strategic location of this office, as well as the addition of key personnel, allows us to better serve our extensive government and military customers," said Gerrit Boyle, Executive Vice President, Government Programs.

Alaska Structures is the world's leading supplier of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) rapidly deployable fabric shelter systems to the US Department of Defense and the UK Ministry of Defense.

Alaska Structures designs, engineers and delivers the highest quality fabric building systems for extreme environments. Since it was founded in 1975, over 45,000 AKS shelters have been tested and proven in over 50 countries around the world and have been used for nearly every building application in ... mining, oil and gas, manufacturing facilities, construction housing, military housing and tactical operations centers, medical facilities, disaster relief facilities, aviation hangars, warehouses and maintenance facilities.
