Diversey transfer project – the last hurdle

Last week the second test rig arrived at WHS Cairo for the transfer project which now completes the move of all equipment from the UK. With the second test rig currently being in commission in Cairo, this will allow testing capacity to double for all the current Diversey work Cairo are currently doing.

The UK will still be supplying Diversey UK and Germany in a dual ordering
process until all UK stock currently being made in Egypt is consumed by which WHS Egypt will be the majority supplier for the Diversey account.

Along with this, the new Soft Care project will also be launched from Cairo later this year which consists of 6 tools and will run production on machine ranges from 50 to 300 ton.

The new range of products will be different from the currently manufactured ranges in that it will be used for soft chemicals like hand soap unlike the other ranges that are used for hard chemicals and for other cleaning purposes. The Transfer project has took nearly 18 months due to COVID restrictions and Brexit, however WHS UK and Cairo have not stopped the customers’ requirements which is a great achievement despite the obstacles.

Logistics Manager Jade Harrison commented “This has been a fantastic cooperation between the UK and Cairo and I’m very pleased with how well the transfer project has gone. Even with the restrictions of travel and the limitations of communications methods such as video and conference call, Egypt have done amazingly taking on the assembly of the units as well as additional spare requirements. A really great achievement by all”
