DTC Botswana names Shrenuj as country’s new sightholder

16 july 2009

De Beers’ DTC Botswana has appointed Shrenuj Botswana as its 17th sightholder in a bid to support what it called the sustainability of diamond manufacturing capacity in the southern African country.
“The unprecedented global economic downturn threatened the viability of an existing cutting and polishing factory in Gaborone, and Shrenuj Botswana’s intervention now means that up to 150 jobs will be saved, and the Shrenuj Botswana factory will now continue to manufacture diamonds to benefit the citizens and economy of Botswana,” DTC Botswana said in a statement.
Shrenuj Botswana, which forms part of the Shrenuj India group, would be authorised to buy rough diamonds.
The new ownership, DTC Botswana said, would mean a change of focus for the factory, which would be working on a range of rough diamonds suitable for Shrenuj’s international downstream requirements for the key global consumer markets.
 “DTC Botswana supply arrangements are non-transferrable, and this exceptional decision to supply Shrenuj Botswana has been taken by the Board in order to maintain the progress made to date in developing local beneficiation capabilities in Botswana,” it said.
Botswana government had separately granted Shrenuj Botswana an operating licence.
