“Our specialised team will conduct training sessions at the resorts on maintaining the systems – this is beneficial to customers as it will reduce the operational costs,” Manager Business Development, Ahmed Yamin said.

MWSC also own manufacturing facilities which ensure product availability at all times and minimal dependence on external merchants.

Water Quality Assurance or WQA package, allows clients to test their water and verify that the quality of water meets the standards specified by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).” Yamin assures that the water will be tested by MWSC’s internationally certified ISO17025 laboratory. “We are proud to proclaim that clients will be able to test the parameters required by the resorts as per EPA regulations from our ISO standard Laboratory.” As a value addition for clients who sign up for the WQA package, MWSC also arranges collection of water samples to carry out the required tests. “Here at MWSC, we aim to provide convenience for our clients.”
