Davis & Shirtliff Sets Sights on New Markets with Completion of Tatu City-based Distribution Centre

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 7 – Water equipment and energy solutions supplier Davis & Shirtliff has announced completion in construction of its ultra-modern distribution facility at Tatu Industrial park to address the needs of customers and significant trade growth within its African market.

The company said the facility, its single largest investment to ever be undertaken, is equipped to support various consumer needs from household to large industry and is set to revolutionize the group’s operations.

“Efficient logistics and distribution are essential for a regional business operating nearly 80 branches in nine countries. With this facility we are able to assist customers in meeting the dynamic challenges faced in their supply chains, providing enhanced efficiency and flexibility. We expect our product and service offering to rise to a whole new level as the centre becomes fully operational in the next two months,’’ said Davis & Shirtliff Group Chairman Alec Davis.

Located at the expansive Tatu City development near Ruiru, some 25 kms from central Nairobi, the distribution centre sits on five acres of land hosting the group’s expansive warehouse facilities and offices. The 10,000m2 single-roofed warehouse area features widely spaced columns, effective ventilation and six loading bays with dock levellers and the integral office block includes excellent staff facilities.

The centre, designed by international architects Boogertman and Partners and constructed to a high standard by Ark Construction with the portal frame provided by Steel Structures, has been generally praised for its efficacy and aesthetics.

“This facility will be transformational as it will revolutionise our distribution efficiency and greatly improve the availability of our wide product selection to the benefit of the region,” said Davis.

Davis & Shirtliff plans to use the new facility to increase the company’s network to 70 percent coverage across Kenya and open its distribution network further in other African markets.
