...contribuyo mucho a...


Explanation:
The expression to GO FAR TOWARD XXX means that something contributed a lot to XXX.
The translation chosen by the asker means that the relationships 'went beyond' maintaining business . This is not what they are trying to say in English.
Therefore, it would have been better to choose "contribuyo mucho a..." or something along those lines.
