Bateman Beijing Axis (BBA) is a China-focused global procurement house that does intelligent procurement in a way that balances total cost, delivery time and quality. For international clients we do China procurement for projects and equipment; for both Chinese and international clients we market and procure commodities and raw materials, and also provide financing assistance.
Clients turn to us for strategic, operational and transactional support. We offer them insight, impact, reliability and confidence on the basis of a highly synergistic partnership between:
- Bateman Engineering N.V.—a global leader in the execution of feasibility work and the design, engineering, procurement and construction management of mineral processing plants, and
- THE BEIJING AXIS Ltd.—a cross-border business bridge to/from China focused on three principal areas: Strategy, Sourcing and Investment
BBA has significant experience in sourcing raw materials, components, finished goods, specially designed/engineered equipment and services from mainland China, and are also able to project manage complicated outsourced manufacturing ventures where highly technical and complex design, engineering, product development and testing are required. Our core sourcing focus is on the Chinese mining and resources sector, as well as on China’s burgeoning industrial and engineering sectors.
