Davis and Shirtliff on 5th November 2015 presented its expanded range of pumps at a Nairobi hotel. The Dayliff range has grown hugely since the first products were introduced in 2008. The expanded range was presented to traders, stockists, professionals and other invited guests including the media.
The Guest of honour at the cocktail event was Ambassador Dennis Awori, the Chairman of the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA). He commended Davis and Shirtliff on the initiative of creating a uniquely Kenyan product range specially selected for its suitability in local conditions.
Welcoming guests at the event, Davis and Shirtliff CEO Alec Davis presented the expanded range of pumps explaining the wide application of the pumps and their associated success. He also introduced and demonstrated the new iDayliff that provides for remote monitoring and operating of pumps using a special phone application. The feature is locally designed and will greatly improve the reliability of water supply, especially in remote areas.
The issue of local manufacture of pumps came up when guests were given a chance to speak. One of the guests wanted to know when local manufacture of pumps would be possible. The Technical Director at Davis, Mr Philip Holi answered that the volumes currently required by the market could not support local manufacturing initiatives of pumps.
