Davis & Shirtliff Zambia opens a new Distribution Center in ZambiaD&S Zambia is now D&S's largest subsidiary that has become the country's market leader in pumps. It also supplies regional markets Zimbabwe and DRC and as volumes have increased additional distribution capacity became essential. To address this GM Jonathan Mainga arranged purchase of a one-acre plot on Luyansha Rd near the existing Head Office that has been developed with a state-of-the-art warehouse and offices block building.

The complex was finished in December and officially opened by Group Chairman Alec Davis at an event well attended by customers, staff and well wishers. The 2,000m² warehouse facility is fitted with high level racks to accommodate much increased stock levels and is managed on a digital warehouse management platform. The new offices also enabled the move of Supply and Finance functions to make more space available for the commercial activities. Mr. Davis particularly appreciated the architects Timestone Architects and contractor African Brothers who working closely with the D&S team led by Jonathan and Henry Davis created this transformation facility that will enable D&S Zambia to reach another level.
