How to become a mining supplier

How to become a mining supplier | MINING | Scoop.it
Tightening market conditions and a transitioning mining sector means Australia’s burgeoning equipment, services and supplier sector is having to up the ante when it comes to securing mining contracts.

General manager of mining supplier company Quarry Mining, Phill Breese said adding to the troubles of a contracting market is the influx of imported products and high Australian operating costs.

Speaking at a recent Austmine Event, Centennial Coal’s group contracts manager Stewart Jolly explained there are a few tricks of the trade when it comes to getting your product onsite and keeping them there.

In 2013 Centennial Coal had a capital expenditure budget of $160 million, spending on average about $300 million a year on operations.

On the miner’s books there are currently about 2000 suppliers, servicing its operations in the Hunter Valley and western regions of New South Wales.

“Centennial has been working with our top 200 suppliers on cost reduction initiatives,” Jolly explained.

How do mining companies engage suppliers?

 

Mining companies engage suppliers through a number of different means Jolly said.

This includes utilising existing vendors, tender processes, reaching out to industry networks and formulating agreements.

Jolly said tenders are often used for capital equipment but stressed not to underestimate the power of industry networks like ICN, Hunternet and Austmine when it comes to getting your foot in the front gate.

”We do run tenders for major capital investment, mining equipment, and infrastructure,” Jolly said.

In 2013 Centennial ran approximately 12 tenders.

“In all cases we rely heavily on ICN, Hunternet and directories,” he said.

“They provide an interface with access to who’s who.”

Jolly also recommended visiting and exhibiting and conferences and industry events.

“We are regularly attenders of these types of [seminar events] as well as AIMEX and conferences,” Jolly said.

“Our engineers are the ones with the requirements, the more you get in front of them the more chance you’ll have of success.”

Getting new innovation on site can be an uphill battle.

                                                                            Quick tipsBecome a member of an industry organisationGo to industry eventsForm relationshipsIdentify your competitive advantage

He said miners can tend to be risk averse and getting involved with industry networks can help overcome some of those early barriers to entry.

“Miners tend to be a very staid bunch, they tend to stay with what they know, what they trust, trying to get them to change something as simple of roof bolts was a nine month project, I can’t stress strongly enough [the importance of being involved in] industry expos, trade publications, [and industry associations], get involved with ACARP is also a very good way to get in,” Jolly said.

“It’s always good to see what’s out there and we do use ICN and Hunternet regularly.”

Jolly said relationships are the key to becoming a preferred supplier.

“One thing I don’t want to discourage is relationships with engineers on sites, you may be providing a niche or bespoke service for them, don’t give up on that, please keep doing that because at the end of the day we’re only buying what the engineers want,” he said.

With over 3000 METS companies in Australia standing out can be difficult but Jolly said companies need to identify their competitive advantage and innovate.

“Innovation and standing out from the competition, you need to do that,” he said, adding: “Our preference is to source locally, regionally, nationally and then internationally.”

He also warned off cold calling, saying purchasing officers and engineers deal with hundreds if not thousands of existing suppliers in the first instance, and fielding calls only makes the job harder.

“Cold calls are really hard for us, we have some 2000 suppliers and even if only 10 per cent of them call us up the phone would be ringing off the hook,” Jolly said.

Instead he suggested forming relationships with site engineers so you aren’t going in cold.

“Talk directly with engineers.”

Ken Raymond from supplier network ICN agreed saying forming relationships is key to becoming a supplier to the mines.

Raymond added that if companies want to supply to the mines their offering has to stand out.
