As part of its plan for growth in Africa, power solution and data centre specialist Master Power Technologies has opened an office in Kenya in order to better serve East Africa.

Situated in Nairobi this forms another step in the expansion of Master Power’s presence in the region. The company recently opened offices in Kitwe and Lusaka in Zambia.

“We identified a requirement for solutions and products in East Africa, not to mention direct representation and made the decision to have a dedicated full time presence here,” says Neill Schreiber, sales and marketing manager at Master Power Technologies.

The Kenyan team is being led by Babeksingh Khalsa who is the regional manager for East Africa.

“We are very excited about having a dedicated Kenyan office as this is enabling us to better service our current projects by having a foot on the ground. Projects planned for 2015 will also benefit greatly from this local office” he says.

“Plans to increase our market share are underway as we are working closely with associated partners for support and are exploring conducting business within different sectors in the market such as; Oil and Gas, Mining and the Marine Industry in addition to the telecom, financial and general data centre markets.”

Schreiber adds that the offices were set up in late 2014 and the company aims to increase its presence to include warehousing of products and spares. “We believe that with our experience in the power and data centre fields we can add real value to the region and assist our East African partners in expanding their knowledge in this field.”
