Irritec Group announces a new Irritec branch in Senegal to develop and consolidate its presence in Western Africa.
Irritec Senegal is the result of a winning collaboration with Scova Impianti a Modena-based (Italy) company active in Senegal since 2016. For 50 years, Scova Impianti has specialized in the design, supply and installation of all types of pumping stations taking water from artesian wells, rivers or basins.
Innovation and sustainability have always been core values for the two companies that now come together in a strategic partnership to promote high quality products and to provide Italian know-how and experience at the service of Senegalese farmers.
Specialized in the production of drip Irrigation systems with 14 international branches, supporting a global network of over 15,000 experts, the Irritec Group identifies advanced technological solutions as a core value, engineering these solutions to optimize environmental resources and production processes, guaranteeing exceptional quality.
“I would like to thank our partners and everybody involved in the project for this important achievement. With the new headquarters of Irritec Senegal, we will offer an even more integrated service to support local agriculture and strengthen our presence in the African irrigation market”, says Carmelo Giuffrè, founder and CEO of the Irritec Group.
“Thanks to the many synergies between our two companies and in particular to our shared dedication to pursuing sustainability within agriculture and to improving the quality of cultivation, we can look forward to working together to develop new opportunities and to help agricultural enterprise to thrive” says Marco Vanzini, CEO of SCOVA Impianti.
The Irritec Senegal headquarters, with its own warehouse, is strategic for the entire territory of Western Africa, from the design and implementation of precision irrigation projects to after-sales assistance.
Through the new branch in Senegal, Irritec will supply complete precision irrigation systems in the territory, guaranteeing assistance during installation and after sales.
Africa is a global leader in terms of potential for agricultural growth as an engine for the local economy, as confirmed by the Emerging Senegal Plan (ESP) set by the Government of Senegal to support the country’s economic and social development. The Emerging Senegal Plan (ESP) aims to increase the growth rate to 7% for ten years (2014-2023). The ESP targets strategic priorities include agriculture and agribusiness, housing, mining and tourism.
The Irritec Group and Scova Impianti can make the difference together. Through Irritec Academy local agronomists can gain further insights into the field of precision irrigation by taking part in courses and onsite training. Irritec Academy includes Agri-Lab, Irritec pilot project programme dedicated to the promotion of efficient irrigation which contributes to the development of sustainable agriculture in emerging countries.
