Company Profile

Company Overview

Founded in 1966 as West Land. Ltd., Westco has expanded from its modest beginnings to become one of the area’s most trusted names in trading, construction and mining. The company conducts business throughout Afghanistan, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. Through the years, Westco Group has broadened its reach and core services while never losing sight of its primary commitment to its customers.


In 1994, registered as Westland General Trading LLC and following growth into Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Russia and the United Arab Emirates, the company’s headquarters were relocated from Singapore to the convenient urban metropolis of Dubai.

Today, Westco employs more than 400 professionals under six specialized companies: West Land General Trading LLC, Westco International FZE, Bedeil Co. Ltd., West Land General Trading, Metal Mining and Westco Construction.
