EMD is a company registered under cooperatives with the aim of providing water by manually drilling of boreholes, deepening existing open wells, pump installation and construction of water tanks. EMD accomplishes this by making Simple, Affordable, and Repairable technologies (SMART) that provide water. We drill 24 meters standard borehole and maximum of 40 meters. We can install variety of pumps on the borehole such as Rope pump, Indian mark 2, Emas, Submersible pump and solar pumps.e.t.c
Our services will provide water for domestic use and generating income. The company was formed in 2018 by a group of drillers who where technically trained and upgraded by Jacana from hand dug wells to manual drilling. The company is licensed with the government under the ministry of water and natural resources (Warma).
Despite having the headquarters in eastern province EMD is spreading the wings across the country meaning that we can drill borehole anywhere in Zambia and our mission is to become a leader in providing water through manual drilling at an affordable cost to every Zambian.
