    • Significant increase in tender awards to local manufacturers
  • Operationally a stressful year:
    • Volumes undercalled by the private sector and in particular the public sector
    • Pressure on factory and supply chain
    • OSD ran at 3 shifts 7 days a week – Sundays 2 shiftsTo avoid buy-outs low margin State orders supplied ahead of private market
