This year marks a major milestone for the company as we celebrate our 70th anniversary. We had a lot of activities lined up to celebrate this major milestone. One of the activities was a Customer Open day that took place on Friday, 13th May.
We had invited our major suppliers, both from overseas and local, as well as our major customers from the various departments and branches in Kenya to showcase the various products and technologies that we have on offer. Of particular interest was the iDayliff monitoring system that drew a lot of interest from the guests.
It was also a chance to officially open our new building named the Dayliff building. The building has a floor space of 1500m2 and will host our HR and training center, logistics and supply teams and the expanded canteen that has a capacity of 180 people. The building was officially opened by the guest of honor, Dr. Abbas Gullet, the secretary general of the Kenya Red Cross Society. The building features the runs the latest in green technology as well as other state of the art features. It has solar PV electricity and solar heated water. It also has a wireless telephony system that will see employees use soft phone instead of desk phones saving the company a huge expense.
The open day was attended by over 200 guests. Our overseas suppliers represented included Grundfos (represented by Lee Carlinand David Githendu), Pedrollo, (represented by Dr. Moustapha Tounkara and Andrea Abagnato), Dab Pumps (represented byCarlo Fuccela), Midas (represented by Elena Jakobson), Yanan (represented by Bella Zheng and Owen Lu), Lorentz (represented by Kai Reinecke) and Davey pumps (represented by Murray Jones & Ahmad Mushtak). In attendance also was the high commissioner of Zambia to Kenya HE Brenda Muntemba who commended the work done by Davis & Shirtliff in both Kenya and Zambia.
The occasion also was used to hand over the various projects that the company undertook under its CSR initiative to the various beneficiaries. The beneficiaries were Life Spring Christian academy from Kibera, Karen technical training school for the deaf and to a community in Namanga supported by Wellaware nonprofit making organization. The projects would go a long way in supporting the community and improving their lives in-line with our slogan. Check below for the photo gallery.
