Grundfos GM: The new branch will service customers in the Delta Region and the West Coast
Dubai, United Arab Emirates.-Thursday, February 22nd 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]
Grundfos Egypt, the multinational manufacturer of pumps and water application systems, has officially opened a new branch in Alexandria. The new branch is part of the company’s efforts to expand its distributor network and service facilities across Egypt.
Ehab Eshaq, General Manager for Grundfos Egypt, said that opening the Alexandria branch is aimed at serving the company's customers in the West Coast, Alexandria and the Delta area; ultimately reducing the burden of transporting pumps to Cairo for maintenance. “The opening of the Alexandria branch is part of the company’s coordinated expansion plan that is expected to include branches and maintenance centers in other governorates in the upcoming period according to need,” he added.
Eshaq praised customers’ support to date, which has already led to large contracts for the company in several mega projects including the one and a half million feddan project, the administrative capital and the highland plateau, as well as private projects in the commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors. He estimated the company's sales during the past year at LE 350 million.
He continued: “The Company aims to increase sales by 10 to 15% to 400 million pounds by the end of this year, as the company won the supply of pumps for major national projects carried out by the government in the administrative capital.”
“The Egyptian market is a promising market that the company is keen to address strongly," said Okay Barutcu, Regional Managing Director for Eastern Europe, Asia, Middle East and North Africa at Grundfos International. “Delayed by unfavorable winds during the past few years and the strict measures enforced by the Egyptian government, the Egyptian economy is now starting to look up, showing signs of recovery, with a faint rebound in foreign investment.”
“The company manufactures about 17 million pumps in different sizes and types annually. It also spends approximately 5 percent of its annual sales on scientific research and development, in an effort to modernize its products and offer unconventional solutions” he continued.
Barutcu explained that Grundfos is already dominant in a number of key markets across Egypt, and setting up a factory for the company's products in Egypt, which is an export base for the countries of origin, will position the company for further growth.
Mohamed Yehia, Maintenance Manager at Grundfos Egypt, noted that the company provides maintenance and after sales service for its wide customer base, with unbeatable professional industry and application know-how. He said: “Grundfos’ teams of highly skilled Repair & Maintenance service technicians provide fast and efficient repair work, which means minimized downtime, keeping disruptions and therefore expenditure to a minimum. It also provides engineers with the opportunity to participate in training courses focused on all types of maintenance and repair.”
