Dolphin Bay has sponsored full soccer gear for 14 members of the team at Vuka Commondale, which is outside Piet Retief in Mpumalanga, as part of our commitment to investing in our customers’ businesses.
Vuka Commondale is a major supplier of treated eucalyptus poles to the local and international market.
The Vuka operations team has a very positive attitude, and investments in the soccer team are helping to maintain their strong sense of motivation, says Gideon Broodryk, Quality Compliance Manager at Vuka.
Maintaining a strong soccer team is part of the company’s socio-economic development, he says.
“Dolphin Bay is so committed to helping us, and helping strengthen the industry, that every one of our dealings with them has gone very well,” says Gideon. “Mark Duckham at Dolphin Bay and I have a superb working relationship.
"In fact, our relationship with Dolphin Bay is perfect.”
“Vuka has a large labour force, and is an extremely efficient and well-run company, top to bottom,” says Mark. “Belonging to a soccer team builds enthusiasm and loyalty, so providing the soccer shirts to Vuka is another way in which Dolphin Bay has helped out by adding value to our clients’ operations.”
