Farmers in the Mt Kenya region have a reason to smile after Davis & Shirtliff, a leading supplier of water pumps and and other related equipment, opened a new branch in Embu as part of its rapid expansion towards the counties.
The company, which celebrated its 70th anniversary of operations last year, is Kenya’s leading water and energy solutions provider. The Embu branch was opened on 23 March by Deputy Governor, Dorothy Nditi Muchungu.
“The Embu branch will offer a wide range of quality water and energy solutions”
Speaking at the official opening, Margaret Kuchio, the Davis & Shirtliff’s GM Commercial said “The Embu branch will offer a wide range of quality water and energy solutions from leading premium suppliers as well as the company’s own quality Dayliff brand. In addition to the borehole pumps, the branch will also offer a wide array of surface booster pumps, water treatment and water transfer solutions for domestic, industrial and agricultural use”.
Davis & Shirtliff plans to open a total of eight branches which will be opened across the country this year.
Some farmers in Embu county are already enjoying the services of the company. One farmer, Peninah Njagi has installed a large solar powered borehole pump yielding 70,000 liters of water daily, for both domestic and farm use. Her initial investment will pay off rapidly as there are no running costs for the solar installation.
The Davis & Shirtliff Embu branch is located along Nairobi-Meru highway past the Stadium, opposite Kenol Kobil petrol station.
Currently, Davis & Shirtliff offers over 5,000 product lines. These will go a long way in turning Embu’s master-plan vision of being a 24-hour economy and food secure county a reality.
