Workshop Activities

The Central Workshop is supplemented by six small workshops, located in each area to provide 'infield' cover to some 16,000 feddans of cane, with another workshop at the factory site. Those workshops are responsible for operational servicing of equipment and carrying out running repairs and adjustments. Major repairs and engine overhauls are performed at the Central Workshop where a master file containing the history of each piece of equipment is maintained. Engineer Mamoun Mohd. El Amin was one of the pioneers who established this workshop, which has business relations on four continents with overseas suppliers such as Toyota, Nissan, Cameco, Iveco, Volvo, Suzuki, Caterpillar, Massey Ferguson, John Deere and Austoft. Engineer Mamoun El Amin is now replaced by Engineer Abdel Moneim Hamad.
