, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 22- Dormans Coffee Group has announced plans to establish its global headquarters at the Tatu Industrial Park, the upcoming development in Kiambu County.
The regional coffee exporter and roaster which plans to spend over Sh656million ($7million) will build its corporate headquarters as well as processing, packaging, warehousing and trading facilities capable of handling more than 15,000 tonnes of coffee per year.
“The decision to consolidate our operations and offices at Tatu Industrial Park demonstrates our commitment to the quality of our coffee and global growth,” said Dormans Chairman Jeremy Block.
On completion by July next year, the Tatu Industrial Park facility will accommodate over 200 employees.
Block says the decision to have their headquarters at Tatu Industrial Park is due to its proximity to Jomo Kenyatta Airport, Runda, Kenyatta University, UniCity, Thika Highway and the Northern and Eastern Bypasses.
“As a major investment in the Kenyan economy and a benchmark for visionary urban planning, Tatu Industrial Park and Tatu City is expected to provide tens of thousands of jobs for Kenyans and create a holistic development that eases the burdens of urbanization on central Nairobi,” Dormans Founder and CEO Stephen Jennings noted.
Tatu City is a 2,500-acre development with residential, commercial, industrial, tourism, social and recreation amenities for more than 70,000 residents and 30,000 day visitors.
Tatu Industrial Park is the ideal location for local, regional and international companies expanding in Africa through a hub in Kenya.
