Fraser Alexander is your trusted mining and industrial partner, providing the innovative solutions and infrastructure that you need to move, manage, and add value to resources, waste and water systems across your value chains.

Our philosophy is built on four interconnecting factors:

Partnerships

Rich partnerships

To thrive for over 100 years, Fraser Alexander has had to continuously reinvent itself. This endless adaptation to an evolving environment has allowed us to build enduring relationships, gaining a deeper understanding of the challenges that our clients face.

Specialisation

Beyond innovation

By investing in specialised disciplines that reflect and anticipate your needs, we’re able to provide proactive and value-adding solutions that address them.

Collaboration

Collaborative culture

We have a strong culture of collaboration, but we also strive to create an environment where pertinent, practical and even extraordinary cross-specialisation solutions can flourish.

Sustainability

Think sustainability

Our trusted partnerships, specialised services and collaborative teams have given us a new perspective on another key dimension of our vision and strategy: sustainability. To us, sustainability is just as critical to the future of our business, our clients’ businesses, and the socio-economic circumstances of our communities, as it is to the environments we impact.

Values

Fraser Alexander’s integrity is anchored in our heritage and woven into the fabric of who we are. Our values make us the innovative, ethical, trustworthy company that stands firm today.

Fraser Alexander's pioneering specialisation and collaborative culture enable us to create customised, cross-discipline solutions to new and complex challenges.

Our passion to keep our clients' interests at the centre of our strategies helps us to build and nurture enduring relationships that are productive, supportive and transparent.

Fraser Alexander’s trusted partnerships, definitive services and cooperative practices enable us to create tailored, holistic solutions to existing and anticipated demands.

Our decentralised hubs allow our clients convenient access to local teams of operational staff and discipline specialists that can be mobilised to deal with challenges as they arise. They’re currently located across South Africa and further afield in sub-Saharan Africa and Chile.

Fraser Alexander's competitive advantage lies in our family of employees. These trusted and empowered individuals are encouraged to take ownership of their parts of the business by functioning as entrepreneurs, delivering without excuses, and never compromising on safety.

Empowerment

For Fraser Alexander, Broad-Base Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) is more than civic duty. It's a value system that recognises our interdependence with our social partners and the communities that we interact with and draw our employees from.

As a result, part of our business strategy is to create opportunities in these communities and to contribute meaningfully to their long-term socio-economic wellbeing. This also integrates closely with our shareholder, the Royal Bafokeng Nation's Plan 35; a long-term initiative focused on service delivery, poverty alleviation and nation-building.

Our CSI initiatives

We've embarked on multiple important CSI initiatives over the years. These include:
