Sinopia has agreed with Grundfos, the number one largest pump manufacturer with a global reach spanning more than 130 countries, to set up a sub-factory where submersible borehole pumps will be assembled right here in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
This assembly line makes Ethiopia the 2nd African country to have a Grundfos Sub-Factory and it is expected to assemble 1056 units of Grundfos SP pumps in its first year of operation. As its initial products, the sub-factory will assemble and market-ready 8 types of submersible borehole pumps.
The sub-factory is expected to provide enough pump supply for the highly increasing demand in drinking water, irrigation, mining, and pressure boosting in high-rise buildings. Additionally, it saves considerable foreign currency, facilitates knowledge transfer in this sector and job creation, as well as provides affordable solar water pumps for Ethiopian smallholder farmers.
