Fijishi Industries & Services

Metals & Mining.

The manufacturing sector plays a key role in global development, as the world grows more urban and industrialised, by providing jobs to a broad spectrum of workers and spurring income growth across different segments of the population.

Helping metals and mining companies create lasting impact in changing environments.

Shifting focus from low- to high-tech industries will prove critical. Countries that have boosted their per capita GDP are doing so by making this shift. We help metals and mining companies accelerate sustainable and inclusive growth by leveraging artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to shape their strategy, boost productivity, and drive innovation.

How do we help clients?


We help companies solve complex problems with a blend of industry, capability, and regional expertise to deliver measurable and lasting performance improvements in a challenging, volatile commodity world.

Metals companies—whether in steel, aluminum, copper, or other base metals (such as nickel, zinc, chrome, or lithium)—must shape strategy and drive performance in an environment of unprecedented volatility driven by many global factors such as changing trade-flow patterns, climate change, and continuous cost pressure.

Metals value chains are “slivering” into distinct slices, each with its own economics, while radical shifts in global supply-and-demand patterns mean producers must adapt to a multispeed world. There is no one path to sustainable value creation; each company must tailor its agenda for moving ahead—including growth across new markets and products—and focus on operational excellence and agility in the face of uncertainty.

What we do
We serve the majority of the world’s largest metals companies across a broad spectrum of topics, bringing a unique blend of industry, capability, and regional expertise.

  • Footprint-optimization strategy - We help develop footprint-optimization strategies for global and regional metals producers. We define the optimal portfolio of assets and product mix based on future growth plans, asset capabilities and cost, competitive environment, and specific customer needs.
  • Tech-enabled transformation - We offer end-to-end transformation approach covering business, organization, and technology. With a holistic transformation framework, we help to overcome the trap of never moving out of studies in digitization and make digital and analytics a real enabler of business success. Our approach to advanced analytics brings together a robust delivery process with a collaborative team of specialists, which are both supported by proprietary technology and products.
  • Corporate restructuring and turnaround - We work with clients to transform the performance, health, and capabilities of their organizations. We use our industry expertise and our distinctive set of capabilities to help clients quickly stabilize operations by implementing a longer-term financial and operational transformation that repairs credibility with key stakeholders and maximizes sustainable value creation.
  • Sustainable future - We help find pathways to decarbonization and define concrete plans to achieve it. We provide solutions for reaching maximum energy efficiency, minimizing waste, maximizing recycling and reuse, and rethinking resource ownership.

We help mining leaders hone strategy, transform operational performance and organizational effectiveness, and deliver step-change improvements right across the value chain—from resource efficiency to capital productivity to marketing.

Mining represents a major proportion of the world economy, a focus of massive investment, and a key growth driver for many countries. Yet after the past decade’s commodity boom, mining companies are operating in a complex environment characterized by high price volatility, increasing operational challenges, and shifting regulation. To create value today and secure competitive advantage for the future, they must achieve laser-sharp strategic focus, drive operational excellence across the business, and deliver high levels of capital and resource efficiency.

What we do
We serve mining companies, across all regions and functions. We help their leaders hone strategies to deliver consistent value-creation in a volatile world, transform their operational performance and organizational effectiveness, and deliver step-change improvements right across the value chain, from resource efficiency to capital productivity to marketing.

Our mining area of work is made up of top-caliber practitioners and experts across six continents, including numerous mine engineers, metallurgists, geologists, and business managers, with deep operational experience in mining. Our client service is backed by an extensive program of proprietary research and a suite of high-impact management tools. Four things distinguish our work:

  • State-of-the-art knowledge - We make major investments in knowledge. We offer our clients unique insights on supply, demand, trade flows, and future prospects for all major mining commodities. We publish extensively on these topics and are core participants in the world’s major mining conferences. We also collaborate with global institutions, mining associations, and policymakers to help shape the industry’s future.
  • Global industry expertise - We bring deep insight into every significant mining commodity, including coal, iron ore, precious metals, bauxite, potash, copper, and other base metals. This is grounded both in deep practical experience, informed by our long-term relationships with leading mining players across commodities and regions, and in-depth proprietary knowledge.
  • Deep expertise - We bring cutting-edge expertise and a track record of breakthrough impact to all key capabilities, from strategy to organization to marketing. For example, our holistic approach to transforming mining operations integrates technical, managerial, and behavioral levers to optimize value, build capabilities, and sustain improvement over time. Our capital-productivity approach translates capital strategy into optimal capital allocation, portfolio mix, and project implementation. We offer a suite of proprietary tools, an in-depth operational benchmarking database that enables clients to capture throughput improvements and capital-expenditure savings of 20 percent or more.
  • Impact-driven approach - We are trusted counselors to CEOs and other senior executives, bringing a top-management perspective to mining companies’ most important opportunities and challenges. We offer objective perspectives rooted in knowledge and analysis, and work in close partnership with our clients to translate strategies and solutions into bottom-line impact at speed and scale.
