We are extremely pleased to have extended our agreement with New Forests Company (NFC) to include Tanzania, making us the sole supplier to the NFC group in Africa.
Dolphin Bay previously supplied NFC’s operations in Rwanda and Uganda. The extended three-year agreement follows a considerable period of trust-building between the two companies. It gives us the scope to do all in our power to help NFC optimise its production of quality poles and address strategic issues within the business in all three of the African countries in which it operates.
This work also corresponds with the framework of the Quality Pledge we are introducing to the industry.
“It is fantastic for us to work with a fast-expanding, progressive company like NFC which seizes new opportunities wherever possible and has large amounts of energy, which it channels into positive growth,” said Bertus.
“We appreciate the gravity of the trust that NFC has placed in us to ensure that their operations never run out of product, and also to provide tailor-made services to the company’s operations. We take this extremely seriously. It is something that we will keep working at, and never become complacent about.”
The extended agreement comes as Dolphin Bay implements a hands-on approach for our clients in East Africa. This stepped-up service aims to help ensure the sustainability of our clients’ businesses, and ours along with them.
“We chose to extend our agreement because of the quality of service that Dolphin Bay provides, and our positive business relationship,” said NFC Chief Financial Officer Stephen Moore. “Dolphin Bay is not just a supplier of chemicals; we work together collaboratively, in partnership, to solve the challenges our business faces. It is much better for us to have a whole solution of this nature; and it’s great to have someone to work with in this way for the long term.”
“Dolphin Bay is a forward-thinking company addressing sustainability and the responsibility of the industry, which is very much the culture of New Forests Company too.”
