On the eve of its 70th anniversary, leading water and energy solutions providers Davis & Shirtliff recently officially opened its newly constructed Coastal headquarters in Mombasa. The opening was carried out by CEO Alec Davis’s wife Christine and was attended by over 150 customers and business partners who were impressed with the facilities available. The state of the art premises is a striking, modern looking four-storey building situated on Jomo Kenyatta Avenue and is a short distance from the company’s previous office building. Custom designed for the firm’s requirements, the new premises are substantially larger and include a showroom, offices and warehousing as well as workshops and training facilities which will support operations in the Coastal region.
Of note is the fact that the building is entirely self-sufficient and is equipped to provide its own power and water through a solar/diesel hybrid system and a borehole with treatment plant. Air conditioned throughout the working areas, the layout has been designed to provide better efficiency and ergonomics to both customers, who will benefit from a one stop shop showroom area, and staff who will enjoy upgraded working, training and canteen areas. Also cutting edge is the use of IT solutions in the building which is wireless throughout and uses digital voice software via laptops to avoid the need for physical telephones, the total absence of which is striking. The new facility signals the company’s intention of offering and developing the latest technologies to provide smart solutions for the water and energy requirements of its customers throughout the region.
Davis & Shirtliff Coast has been established for over 16 years having taken over the business of Butech Ltd in 2000 and is now the acknowledged industry leader in the region. Under the energetic leadership of GM Mohamed Farook, the business operates through a network of branches in Malindi, Diani, Nyali, Lamu and Voi and the team of over 50 staff are looking forward to offering higher levels of product and service support and providing higher service levels to its customers.
