DSL commissions $1B warehouse at Diamond

first_imgAs part of its ongoing multimillion-dollar expansion programme, Distribution Services Limited (DSL), a major subsidiary of the Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) Group, on Friday commissioned a state-of-the-art warehouse.The new facility was constructed over a 17-month period at Plantation Diamond, East Bank Demerara (EBD), to the tune of more than $1 billion. The warehouse is about 43,000 square feet and is outfitted with modern storage facilities with capabilities to store both frozen and chilled goods.At the commissioning ceremony, General Manager of DSL, Bryan Prittipaul explained that the company’s success as a leading distributor of fast-moving consumer products in the country as well as moves to diversify into retail has pushed the need for such a massive distribution warehouse to serve its four “Cash and Carry” stores and other customers.(From left) DDL Chairman Komal Samaroo, former Chairman Dr Yesu Persaud, acting Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge, Finance Minister Winston Jordan and Business Minister Dominic Gaskin joining a Sixth Form beneficiary of the DDL Foundation in cutting the ribbon at the commissioning ceremony of the new DSL warehouse“The distribution business currently reaches 2300 retailers in Guyana through our effective sales course and strong distribution network. However, these efforts were stymied to an extent as the rapid growth of DSL resulted [in] to our existing warehouse and this provided a key justification to our state-of-the-art warehouse facility,” he stated.According to the DSL General Manager, the company is now positioned to continue its growth through the development of current brands as well as the acquisition of new brands and categories.Meanwhile, Chairman of the DDL Group, Komal Samaroo noted that the construction of this warehouse is part of a much larger expansion programme that the company has undertaken.Last year the company announced a $10 billion expansion programme and this had already seen the construction and completion of a state-of-the-art warehouse for ageing 30 barrels of rum to support its international brand development.“Not too far from here, we are building a new modern blending plant, which is scheduled for completion later this year; we are in the middle of a modernisation of Demerara Shipping port and office facilities at Water and Schumacher Streets, Georgetown, and we are commencing a major expansion of our TOPCO operation – an expansion which I think bring very interesting linkages to the agriculture sector in Guyana,” Samaroo posited.The new DSL state-of-the-art warehouse facility at Diamond, EBDAccording to the Chairman, DDL has always been forward-looking and capitalises on opportunities. He explained that even though the company is recognised, a branded market would pose major challenges because of what was taking place on the international market but the company still went ahead with divestment plans and giving birth to the DSL subsidiary.“Our goal was to take Guyana’s best-known product to the world while bring some of the best-known products from the world and the region to the Guyanese market and consumers. That is what we’ve been doing further past 27 years,” he asserted.Samaroo went on to outline that DSL’s growth is a sure projection and this new facility will prove to be an ease to do business especially because of its strategic location in a community which will be the origin of the much-anticipated bypass road that will link the East Bank and East Coast Demerara corridors.On the other hand, Finance Minister Winston Jordan lauded the expansion the company has undertaken over the years, noting that these investments are a testament to the confidence investors have in Guyana.The Finance Minister noted that Guyana is now looked at as the “preferred destination”. This, he said, was highlighted at the recent Prospectors and Development Association of Canada Convention – the largest mining convention in the world – where over 275 investors attended the “Guyana Day” with interests shown by “extremely high-level investors”.last_img read more

first_imgSouthampton have confirmed the signing of Sporting Lisbon right-back Cedric Soares.The Portuguese defender has signed a four-year contract at St Mary’s for a fee reportedly in the region of £3.6million.The Saints have quickly followed on from Tuesday’s deal for Spain international Juanmi to sign Soares, who recently returned from international duty.After penning the deal, the 23-year-old said: “Southampton is a big, big club in England and is very respected. It’s a club with a lot of history and, for me, it’s very important to play for a big club. I think this is a very good move.“I joined this club because I believe we can do better and better every year.”While previous reports suggested the deal would pave the way for Nathaniel Clyne to move to Liverpool, sources close to the club insist Soares has been signed to provide competition to the England right-back.The Reds had an initial £10million bid rejected by the Saints earlier this month and are yet to return with an improved offer for the 24-year-old.

West Brom reject transfer request from England star amid Tottenham links

first_imgWest Brom have rejected a transfer request from striker Saido Berahino.The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham, with reports this week suggesting Spurs had a £15m bid turned down by the Baggies.Berahino was left out of the West Brom side which lost to 3-2 to Chelsea on Sunday.A club statement read: “West Bromwich Albion have received a written transfer request from Saido Berahino.“The request has been rejected and the club’s position remains unchanged from that outlined in the statement from chairman Jeremy Peace of August 18.”Peace underlined the Baggies’ desire to keep Berahino – who scored 20 goals last season – after turning down Spurs’ opening offer last week. “We have no interest in selling Saido which is what I have told (Tottenham chairman) Daniel Levy,” he said in a statement.“I know we are living in an age where no club can say ‘never’ about the possibility of selling a player.“However, the prospect of selling Saido is simply not on our agenda.”But Pulis has admitted the club would be powerless to stop Berahino leaving if Tottenham made them an offer they could not refuse. “I’m sure Tottenham wanted to keep Bale and Manchester United wanted to keep Ronaldo so I’m not stupid enough to say ‘I’m not doing this’ or ‘I’m not doing that’,” he said last week.Berahino came through the youth ranks at The Hawthorns, having made his debut in August 2012, and spent time on loan at Northampton, Brentford and Peterborough.He has made 83 appearances and scored 29 goals for the Baggies. 1 Saido Berahino last_img read more

Imperial in €270m German acquisition

first_imgLehnkering operates in defensive customer industries, focused mainly around chemicals, and will provide Imperial with an ideal opportunity to expand into global emerging markets that are served by German exports. South African industrial group Imperial is to acquire German logistics firm Lehnkering from Lukas Sweden AB for €173-million, in order to grow and diversify its international logistics business and strengthen its position in Germany, its second home market. The transaction will also see Imperial assume debt of €97-million, taking the total enterprise value to €270-million. Lehnkering also provides outsourced services where it synthesises, mixes and packages chemical products on behalf of its clients. The effective date of the acquisition is expected to be at the end of 2011 or in the first quarter of 2012, subject approval from the necessary regulatory authorities. 3 October 2011 “The management team of Imperial Logistics International is highly experienced and competent players in the European logistics market, and as a result, our base in Germany is ideally suited to be the hub of our international activities outside Africa,” Imperial said in a statement last week. “The Lehnkering acquisition will further improve Imperial’s competitive position in European inland shipping, ports and terminals operations, warehousing and distribution and contract logistics,” the company added. Imperial has experienced a similar evolution in its contract logistics business, Panopa, which started as purely a logistics service provider and over the years became more entrenched in its customer base through sub-assembly on behalf of motor manufacturers. Outsourcing in the chemicals industry SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The trend to outsourcing in the chemicals industry is expected to grow as chemicals suppliers tend to focus on their core business of product development and marketing. “Imperial wished to increase their presence in this industry based on the know-how and experience we have in shipping, contract logistics, distribution and warehousing.” The acquisition will be funded from new euro denominated banking facilities secured for the acquisition for a period of five years. Imperial has in addition obtained permission from the South African Reserve Bank to fund a portion of the acquisition from its South African operations. “The German operations have traditionally delivered excellent returns on capital for the group.”last_img read more
