Success, planned in advance

The JSE-listed Distribution and Warehousing Network Limited, or DAWN, manufactures and distributes quality branded hardware, sanitary ware, plumbing, kitchen, engineering and civil products through a strategically-positioned branch network in South Africa and selected African countries.

They approached us to help them realise their ambition of doubling their competitive advantage across Africa. Our relationship with this ambitious team started in October 2013 when they turned to us for our unique expertise. We entrenched ourselves in their operation before taking decisive action.

We created a bespoke solution that enhanced their existing cluster approach, leveraging our understanding of both their business and their ambitions to make their goal of doubling their presence a reality.

DAWN has always been a firm believer in local enterprise development and community growth, and thanks to this deal, countless individuals have benefited. Confirmation of the fact that when ambitions change lives, we all prosper.
