The clever and outstanding design combines a 1.125m2 services workshop and logistics centre on the ground floor topped off with offices and meeting rooms above. Those designated to work in the upper part of the building may be easily distracted by the breathtaking views over the harbour and Table Mountain.Following the establishment of DSCT in 2007, the company has experienced an impressive growth in recent times and the order book is comfortably filled. The number of people working at the yard has increased to over 200 persons over the past twelve months.Managing Director Frank Rebel:“The additional space created by the new multi-purpose shed and offices will allow us to further expand our operations here in Cape Town.”“Our in-house training centre currently accommodates 36 enthusiastic and talented welding and boilermaking apprentices (both male and female) in various phases of education. But education & training does not stop at artisan level. We believe in constant self-improvement for a healthy and competitive company, and so various training courses are offered at all levels within the organization.”DSCT’s stockpile management enables the shipyard to maintain a constant workflow, which translates to constant levels of local employment.Investing in South AfricaFrank Rebel has clear ideas about the further development of the site. “We do not only wish to uphold the Damen standard in our products. To incorporate this standard in our buildings and facilities is equally important. It will reflect on everything else, people and community alike”.The opening of the building will give Mr Rebel a chance to highlight the firm roots that Damen is taking in African soil. The ongoing, multi-million Rand investment program in logistics, internal organization and infrastructure has been given a face. The company’s BBBEE rating of 3 and a substantial NIPP-offset are further evidence that serious endeavours are being made towards long-term growth in Africa.Building high-quality ships in Africa for African clients remains DSCT’s main goal, thus benefitting from the emerging Sub-Saharan market. The Cape Town yard can build a wide range of vessels in both aluminium and steel, with conventional designs or with the revolutionary Axe-Bow design. DSCT builds Offshore Patrol Vessels, Inshore Patrol Vessels, (high speed) naval craft, dredgers, research vessels, pontoons and crew supply vessels.All products are made according to proven, standardized technology based on years of R&D and client feedback.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 5, 2012; Image: Damen View post tag: Naval Industry news View post tag: Shipyards View post tag: Navy View post tag: President View post tag: News by topic Share this article View post tag: opens View post tag: officially View post tag: New View post tag: Grouplast_img read more

Know your audience: There’s room for all in marketing

first_imgI’m obsessed with a new show on Food Network called Buddy vs. Duff. It’s a weekly showdown between Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman and Cake Boss star Buddy Velasco – two veterans in the baking world. Each week, they go head-to-head to see who will create the most innovative, creative and best tasting cakes.Their creations are more than cakes. They are true works of art. But their styles are so completely different that it’s nearly impossible to choose a winner. Duff’s cakes are edgy and innovative. Buddy’s cakes are classical and traditional. Both of them admire what the other does, but they rarely agree on what a cake for a wedding or other special event should look like.Sometimes marketing is the same way. We look at something another credit union or bank has done and automatically form an opinion. If we don’t love it, we come up with dozens of reasons why the concept is flawed, often forgetting that perhaps we are not the target audience.Like Duff and Buddy, each financial institution caters to its own specific audiences according to its own brand guidelines. When we conduct marketing audits for financial institutions, we ask for information about target demographics, brand promises and other necessary details so we can make the appropriate recommendations. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
