, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 30 – Kenyan based multinational Davis & Shirtliff has opened three new branches in Kenya and Tanzania. This brings its branches across the region to 31, as demand for its water and energy products expands.
“With our new branches we are able to reach more customers and pro actively engage and participate in local markets,” said Alec Davis, CEO Davis & Shirtliff Group.
Davis & Shirtliff has a wide range of equipment that includes water pumps for domestic and commercial use, solar panels, batteries and related accessories as well as generators, water treatment and pool equipment.
The water solutions market is also projected to grow at a rate of 10 percent per annum on the back of a fast growing population and demand for better services from our water services providers.
“For both solar and water products the fast growth is from both consumers who are connected to water and electricity supply, especially those involved in development projects, as well as those in remote areas that are currently unserviced,” said David Gatende, Deputy CEO Davis & Shirtliff Group.
The two Kenyan branches are in Karen and Meru a growing regional centre at the foot of Mount Kenya. A third branch is in the Kariakoo downtown area in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania.
“We want to develop business in these areas and our strategy is to bring our services closer to them,” said Davis. The three new branches are fully stocked with the full range of Davis and Shirtliff water and energy equipment and staffed by trained and experienced engineers.
