Weir and Anglo American sign global framework agreement

The GFA outlines supply chain arrangements between the two companies at a global, national and regional level, and establishes standardised administrative arrangements to procure pumps and associated slurry handling equipment.

The strategic alliance is designed to optimise total cost of ownership, guarantee security of supply, promote safety and improve reliability in ways that will be beneficial to both parties.

As Anglo American’s main supplier of mill circuit pumps, Weir will accelerate the roll out of wear reduction technology across the mining group’s installed Warman pumps. Future projects will include piloting Weir mill circuit technology, promotion of the WBH range of slurry pumps in projects and wider use of Cavex hydrocyclones in dewatering applications.
