Austmine and BHP Announce Strategic Partnership

Austmine and BHP Announce Strategic Partnership

Austmine and BHP have announced a strategic partnership focused on bringing people and resources together to maximise value-chain opportunities and further strengthen the competitiveness of the Australian METS and mining sectors.

The three-year partnership will see BHP actively involved with Austmine through nationwide industry events, webinars, visits to BHP’s operations and other innovation projects.

BHP Group Procurement Officer Sundeep Singh said the partnership was about breaking downs barriers to access.

“Mid way through last year, we brought together a group of representatives from across the Australian METS sector including Austmine to understand the challenges and opportunities in engaging with our business.”

“After hearing the perspectives of the sector, we have since worked with Austmine to design a partnership which will build relationships between the Australian METS sector and BHP personnel at multiple levels.”

“We hope this increased access will increase our adoption of technological innovations from around the country and also provide an opportunity to test supply chain improvements through Austmine.”   

A recent Austmine member survey showed it was very difficult to do business with tier 1 miners, particularly for small firms.

Austmine’s CEO Chris Gibbs Stewart said: “The smaller the company, the more difficult it is to get their foot in the door. Our partnership will enhance communications, build trust and make it easier to do business with BHP."

“We have a world-class METS sector which has a global reputation for problem solving, innovative solutions and advanced technology. Working with BHP in close collaboration, we will no doubt take this reputation to the next level.”

Austmine is the leading not-for-profit industry association for the Australian Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector with over 600 members nationally. The partnership will contribute to Austmine’s goal of championing the Australian METS sector as global innovation leader and providing growth opportunities to members. For more information see www.austmine.com.au.
