Anglo American is a global and diversified mining business that provides the raw materials essential for economic development and modern life. Their portfolio of world-class competitive mining operations and undeveloped resources provides the raw materials to meet the growing consumer-driven demands of the world’s developed and maturing economies.
De Beers had been an Apogee client for a number of years. Following Anglo American’s takeover of the company, the newly formed, larger organisation found itself in a situation where it had two suppliers in place. Anglo American recognised that this could lead to inefficiencies and that they needed to consolidate the print fleet.
By going to tender, Anglo American was keen to test the market and compare the offerings of Apogee, its existing supplier and other competitors. Anglo had already conducted its own internal audit of document production, removing the need for the Apogee team to take this step. Having reviewed the audit data, Apogee utilised this data to formulate a bespoke solution that closely mirrored what was already in place at De Beers. Our unique knowledge and experience had given us a clear view of the company’s likely challenges and enabled us to make the most suitable recommendations, ensuring that Apogee was awarded the contract.
