For Damar this year saw the conclusion of a 7 year journey, resulting in the business becoming fully compliant as a Dangerous Goods facility. An achievement that was by no means an easy task.
Damar is the first company within the industry to gain such accreditation and that is something we are enormously proud of.
In 2010 after EPA approved our plan and from solid financial backing by shareholders, we were on our way to becoming fully compliant. Over the years the journey has involved a number of timely and very costly steps including; the reconstruction of a new solvent line, major factory upgrades and the installment of new aerosol lines. In June 2016 the Damar site completed work on two DG warehouses, each capable of holding 2,500 pallets each. The last new aerosol line was finalised in August this year bringing the complete upgrade to a conclusion.
The Damar management team have learnt many lessons along the way and are immensely proud of the part each and every Damar employee played in completing this initiative. Being fully compliant opens new and exciting opportunities for Damar, and we look forward to seeing what transpires in 2018 and beyond.
Damar would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Christmas holiday!
