After serving this market, from the UK for several years, we believe we can better support our customers in this part of the world with reliable and locally based sales, service and support - customer centricity is at the heart of SLS Kenya. Nairobi was a natural choice of location for the office due to many pan African research institutions having headquarters in Nairobi. Frequent transport and cargo connections assist us in providing the highest level of logistical service to our customers.
Stephen Mellor, Sales Director for SLS Kenya has a wealth of experience in the East African laboratory market and is responsible for setting the offices up along with Benedict Malingu, Technical Director SLS Kenya. Benedict is highly familiar with this market as he ran his own business in lab equipment servicing and supply for several years. His local knowledge coupled with years of technical experience will enable us to provide industry leading levels of customer support.
Ian Roulstone, Sales Director SLS commented “We are incredibly excited to establish a direct presence in such a vibrant and growing market. Our international presence is enhanced by the establishment of this office and we look forward to growing our East African business whilst further extending our global reach and presence”.
Stephen Mellor, Sales Director SLS - Kenya added “The Kenyan market, in particular Nairobi, is alive with the research institutions freely sharing information and research personnel with counterparts in neighbouring countries. There has been a unanimously positive response from our customers and our presence here is already yielding results”.
