|Basta in Nykvarn
Basta Work Cooperative, non-profit association with business activities, – was the name that was registered in the autumn of 1994. It was then Basta for the first time opened its gates in the municipality of Nykvarn, about 60 km south of Stockholm. The goal was then, as it is today, to rehabilitate people, that for a long time has been outside the labour market, due to problems with drug abuse and/or criminality. The idea was that the people who were looking for work at Basta would start a rehabilitation process through running a commercially successful business. Our ideas about rehabilitation though enterprising were proven to be sustainable and today Basta has expanded and has developed into a group with Basta in Nykvarn as the mother company.
