KIWASCO MD SUPPORTS OPENING OF GRUNDFOS NAIROBI OFFICE
People in Africa increasingly call for solutions, which offer easier access to water for an affordable price. In order to get ahead of this tendency, Grundfos recently expanded its presence in Africa with the opening of new facilities in Nairobi, Kenya, to strengthen its East Africa activities, and in Cape Town in South Africa to complement its existing five star Industrial Green building already situated in Johannesburg.
Kisumu Water and Sewerage Company Managing Director, Eng. David Onyango joined the team in opening the Nairobi office. Water scarcity and rising energy prices increase demands for energy efficient water solutions in the more politically and economically stable markets in Africa. Such tendencies make the global pump manufacturer upgrade its activities.
If we are really going to grow the market, it is important for us to come closer to the customers and offer them better opportunities of seeing, touching and feeling our products. This will now be possible in our Kenyan center’s new premises in Nairobi,” Lee Carlin, Area Managing Director, explained.
