Our operations continue to expand in Egypt. We have now set up our own Marine Surveying department and we are building a strong track record with our fumigation services. Also, we continue to expand inspection services to new customers and products.
Our partner HR company ‘Target’ assisted with our ‘Annual Staff Communications Meeting’ which has just been held in Alexandria. It was attended by managers from all the Egyptian ports in which Vallis operates. We now have a staff complement of 93 in Egypt.
I am also delighted to report that our head office has had its first 2 ladies join us: Miss Ataa Atef and Miss Mahitab El Halawany.
Ataa is going to run our new Arabic website, which is due to be launched soon, and she will be visiting England shortly. We will provide more information on the site in due course.
We are now also partnering with the Colors laboratory in Cairo to provide full analytical certification for all the products that we handle.
It is an incredible, first-world facility that tests for everything from agri products to gene mapping and oncology samples.
Our attention is turning to setting up in neighbouring countries. Sudan will be the first one and it will be established as a branch of our Egyptian company. We do also hope to establish a company in Libya as soon as peace and stability return to the country.
If you would like more information on this or any of the services that Vallis provides, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
