KENYA: German compressor manufacturer Bitzer has added a service centre to its operations in Kenya.
Just 14 months after establishing its Kenya office, Bitzer is increasing its presence in Nairobi by opening an authorised service centre in cooperation with its local partner RepElectric.
Both the office and service centre in Kenya are structurally affiliated with and receive support from Bitzer Middle East.
“Kenya is a strategically important growth region for Bitzer,” said Stefan Leitl, MD of Bitzer Middle East. “Our ASC allows us to offer our partners in Kenya a brand new, authorised range of services. Because we have a Bitzer team in the region, we can now respond much quicker to all requests.
“Another benefit is that our colleagues in Nairobi are very well-acquainted with the requirements of local users. They can quickly repair reciprocating compressors and motors and thus reduce downtime, carry out maintenance work, order original Bitzer spare parts and provide advice on all issues related to repairs, efficiency requirements and product piracy.”
