U.S. water technology giant Xylem is conducting feasibility studies to build a manufacturing facility in Egypt, said Vincent Chirouze – managing director at Xylem Africa – on Thursday.
Xylem has over 1,500 products and brands and the studies aim to select the optimal product to serve the North Africa region.
The anticipated plant will target the Agadir Agreement's and the African trade bloc COMESA countries, Chirouze added.
The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa or COMESA countries are 19 countries include: Burundi, Comoros, Congo, Dem Republic, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sudan, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

The company plans to complete its feasibility studies and start actual steps towards building its facility in Egypt by late 2022, Mohamed Shetta, Xylem's Country Manager for Egypt, said.

"Launching Egypt office is a milestone for a long-running relationship between Xylem, Egypt, and surrounding countries. We have more plans for the region." Xylem said in a statement.
"The booming Egyptian economy encourages Xylem to introduce more technologies and solutions in the water infrastructure sector, especially wastewater and irrigation treatments, and expansions into the utility market and national mega projects." Shetta in earlier statement.
