Anglo American Platinum’s head office is situated in Johannesburg, with sales and marketing offices located in London and Singapore in order to service a global network of customers. Amplats shares are listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

  • Most of the group’s asset portfolio is located in South Africa, where it owns eight mines and is involved in seven joint ventures. The group also aims to buy into international expansion, with a number of smelting and refining facilities, as well as exploration partners in Brazil, China, Canada and Russia.

This industry-leading product quality has been a major factor in customer willingness to buy Anglo American Platinum product.

  • Anglo American Platinum recently became a founding member of the World Platinum Investment Council, which is funded by six of South Africa’s leading producers and aims to stimulate global demand and enhance the sustainability of the industry. The group also supports Platinum Guild International, which focuses on the jewellery industry in the high potential markets of China and India.
