KGK diamond cutting firm honours long serving employees

Forty-one employees of the Indian diamond cutting and polishing company, KGK Namibia, were presented certificates of appreciation in recognition of their dedication and five years’ service to the company on Wednesday morning.

At the event, KGK managing director Sandeep Kothari said the event was to honour long-serving employees, most of whom have been with the company since it was established in Namibia’s Prosperita industrial area in 2017.

“We are honoured to have the presence of Mandarapu Subbarayudu, the esteemed high commissioner of India in Namibia, at this celebratory occasion. His attendance has added prestige and significance to the event, highlighting the strong ties between India and Namibia,” said Kothari.

He added that the company greatly values the expertise and experience accumulated by its long-serving employees and remains steadfast in its commitment to their continuous growth and success.

“We are incredibly proud of our long-serving employees who have significantly contributed to our company’s growth and success. Their dedication and commitment are invaluable to us and this event is a celebration of their achievements,” said Kothari.

According to manager Prakash Kothari, KGK has invested in an ultra-modern infrastructure with a staff complement of 230, 70% of whom are Namibians.

The company plans to help Namibian citizens acquire the necessary skills to perform all functions in a diamond factory, and KGK will use its experience earned in South Africa and elsewhere for transferring knowledge to Namibia citizens. – email:
