On 1 April this year, Digital Distributors celebrated its 30th birthday. This is a remarkable achievement and we believe we have reached this milestone by being responsive to our market’s needs and by focusing on our clients’ requirements.
Level 2 BEE
In the context of the country’s continuously reforming business landscape, it has become clear that business requires Black ownership in order to continue successfully into the future. To this end, the Digital Distributors BBBEE Trust was established and it has taken up a 51% ownership of Digital Distributors, resulting in the company’s Level 2 BEE status. Gill Tomassi and John Panton will stay on as directors of Digital Distributors and welcome on board new fellow director Dilshaad Rajie, who has been with Digital Distributors for 21 years.
The original Digital Distributors has been divided into two separate entities. The new company, Colorflow Solutions, will trade alongside Digital Distributors. The colour management side of the business, which entails the supply and implementation of software products, now resides under Colorflow Solutions, with me (John Panton) at its helm. This new company has a Level 4 BEE status, and will be focused on sales and implementing relevant and exciting technologies for the print and packaging industries. Colorflow Solutions will introduce new and exciting solution to the market, in the near future.
Digital Distributors will continue to focus on the supply of consumables, ink and LFP devices to clients.
