Water-related equipment supplier Davis & Shirtliff has unveiled a new range of water and energy products to fix a market gap created by evolving industry standards and new building regulations.

The firm said the new products have also factored in changes in technology and new offerings from suppliers seeking to phase out old technology.

“Our expanded product range offers our consumers advanced technology and high performance for those looking for a wide variety of water and energy-efficient products which we have developed to respond to market needs and demands,” said Davis & Shirtliff chairman, Alec Davis.

The new product portfolio covers Solar, Water Treatment, Chemicals, Power Products, irrigation, Pumping & Pools markets, with the firm saying they are more efficient than similar products on market and would help its customers reduce domestic and commercial utility bills.

“These Products are aimed at discerning customers who want quality products at an affordable price,” Davis said.

The new move comes as the company intensifies distribution efforts to impact more lives in Kenya and other markets in Africa.

“We aim to give people wide choice at an attractive price and with rapid order fulfillment. Our key purpose is to improve people’s lives by providing water and energy solutions across Africa,” he said.

He added that its product segment managers comprise engineers with a long history of experience in the industry who are constantly scanning the market to identify new market trends and customer requirements.

The company’s R&D and product selection process is steered by the Group chairman and technical director to review each of the major product segments and to track new opportunities to add value to its customer’s operations.

“ There is constant feedback on market trends and developments into each of our key product segment champions who then carry out the appropriate product development activities to roll out the new products or services,” Davis said.
