June 2013: Dolphin Bay wishes to thank our clients for accepting the price increase we were obliged to implement recently after a succession of downgrades in the Rand / Dollar exchange rate.
The prices were increased with great reluctance, after it became impossible for Dolphin Bay to continue absorbing the impact of the Rand’s decreasing value.
The value of the Rand had dropped by 18% since the beginning of the year.
“We realise that the price increase affects our clients’ businesses and we understand the impact of rising prices because we are in exactly the same boat, with raw materials becoming increasingly expensive as the Rand depreciates,” says Bertus.
“The Dolphin Bay staff wish every one of our clients business success in the near and long-term. We will continue to do all we can to boost and improve their operations and offer outstanding service levels.”
