Georgia's engineering firm Kaya offers additional services

BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 6

By Tamilla Mammadova - Trend:

Engineering firm Kaya helps develop disinfection booth in Georgia, Trend reports via the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

Kaya is an engineering firm specializing in mechanical, electrical and plumbing products and services for local companies. Kaya also manufactures spare parts such as cable trays, electrical panels and construction components, subtly substituting imported goods to expand its operation and market share.

With funding from the European Union, the EBRD worked with the company to fine-tune its financial management practices. This was particularly necessary since according to a new law in Georgia, SMEs are required to report their financial data consistent with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

‘’We now have a clear understanding of our financial situation and how to manage it to move forward. Plus we have more time at hand that we direct to other aspects of our operations, such as introducing innovative techniques and manufacturing lines,’’ says Chief Financial Officer Ilia Bachanadze.

Kaya also purchased additional welding equipment with support from Enterprise Georgia and now offers businesses additional services. In an effort to quickly respond to the spread of the novel coronavirus, the company manufactured a disinfection booth with the technical support of a local technology start-up, Edison Tech Solutions.

‘’When entering the booth, you pass a sensor which sends signals to the compressors, then sprinklers spray out small disinfectant particles that are harmless to the eyes and skin. But your body is covered by the protective layer,’’ said CEO & Founder of Edison Tech Solutions Givi Beridze.

After undergoing the necessary certification by the national lab, it is already available at the leading maternity clinic in Tbilisi. The company foresees that more companies and institutions will soon come on board.

“We are happy to support local businesses in their efforts to prevent the spread of COVID - 19. We plan to further advance the booth and make it more functional by integrating a thermal screening feature,” said Bachanadze.
