DD Group International (DDGI), is one of Australia’s leading safety procurement companies, with an unwavering solution-based approach to partnerships, is proud to be officially recognised as a Registered Supplier with Supply Nation.
Since taking over the reins in January 2021, one of the proudest achievements to date for Tanya Macnamara (Owner and Sole Director) and CEO John Macnamara, is receiving this formal recognition.
“As an indigenous business owner, it was incredibly important that DDGI joined Supply Nation, an organisation that we respect for their work in helping shape today’s emerging and rapidly evolving Indigenous business sector,” John said.
“Our connection to country, and our roots in regional Queensland run deep, and becoming a Registered Supplier of Supply Nation is another step in our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy across our business operations, which will soon be expanding Australia-wide,” John continued.
“Encouraging more inclusive practices in our purchasing decisions and facilitating collaboration with other Supply Nation members supports DDGI’s business strategy to build a genuine connection with the communities in which we live and work.
“This recognition by Supply Nation also aligns with the expectations of not only our clients, but also our staff, living and breathing our values and commitment to solution-based and value-driven partnerships within our own supply chains.”
Last year, DDGI announced Rugby League legend Scott Prince as their brand ambassador.
“For me to work alongside a business, it’s important that my values align with the company I’m representing,” Scott said.
“This couldn’t be truer when it comes to DDGI, I’m proud to work alongside a company that is 100% Queensland owned by an Indigenous family, working tirelessly to grow a culture of safety.
“Not to mention, we come from the same small hometown.”
“Tanya, John and the whole team at DDGI are incredibly proud of their recognition and alignment with Supply Nation, and rightfully so.
“This registration is a worthy nod to DDGI for taking pride in their traditional roots, and unwavering commitment to forming genuine partnerships.”
