Each manufacturing facility specialises in particular areas of rough

Near‐gem is complicated to manufacture. Experience and specialisation provides a competitive advantage

Skilled, cost effective labour is also key to commercial feasibility

Each factory specialises in rough of particular size and quality characteristics

Enhanced manufacturing efficiency; workers develop skills in designing and polishing the rough

Some rough is manufactured into specialist products, including rose cuts, generating profitability

Combination of in‐house, joint venture and contract manufacturing. Demand for smaller, cheaper polished is more seasonal than larger sizes, flexible capacity is an important part of our competitive advantage
