The same-site working relationship that Thos Begbie has established with global quality inspectorate Dekra Industrial RSA is giving the prolific exporter of copper castings a commercial edge in its global dealings with mining- and smelter-related customers worldwide. Thos Begbie now hosts the official Mpumalanga branch of Dekra Industrial RSA, previously Raysonics, which puts it on the receiving end of valuable on-site inspection and nondestructive testing (NDT) services from a newly built state-of-the-art metallurgical laboratory. Dekra Industrial RSA, which is part of Germany’s Dekra Group, has invested R10-million-plus in the large metallurgical laboratory, which is equipped with high-technology equipment for the NDT that takes place on the 16.7 ha Middelburg site of the 130-year-old Thos Begbie, the producer of some of the world’s largest pure copper castings. “To have Dekra on site is an incredible advantage to us,” Thos Begbie CEO Edwin Dreyer told Engineering News in an interview. (Also watch attached Creamer Media video). Thos Begbie’s under-roof facilities on 33 000 m2 include the company’s vast foundry and pattern shop, heavy engineering works and pipe manipulation divisions, providing it with versatility to cope with the demanding pyrometallurgical requirements. The ISO 9001:2008-certified company uses 99.99% pure cathode as its source of copper for slab and cast coolers. Dekra’s investment in equipment and a long lease form a synergistic link with investment by Thos Begbie executives in their private capacities in the construction of the new two-storey building to Dekra’s design. The two companies started earnest discussions in July last year, broke ground on November 1 and opened the on-site facility mid-February. The Mpumalanga branch is part of Dekra’s 12-branch network that is staffed by 660 permanent employees, who provide NDT services and destructive testing services to South Africa’s fabrication, petrochemicals and power generation sectors, including Eskom’s Kusile power station project, in Mpumalanga. “Everyone in the Mpumalanga area is struggling with turnaround times and because of all the development in the Mpumalanga area, the establishment of the facility at Thos Begbie makes good business sense,” said Gerber, the founder in 1984 of Raysonics, which was acquired in 2013 by the 89-year-old, 52-country, 38 000-employee Stuttgart-based Dekra group. The German group is still on the lookout for more acquisitions in South Africa, where Dekra Industrial RSA, a level-three contributor to broad-based black economic empowerment, has doubled in size in the last four years. Thos Begbie’s pursuit of high quality has been a key factor in its export success. In the past decade, quality evaluations have advanced significantly, with smelting operations demanding precise cooler pipe positioning in copper castings to ensure safety. As an exporter, Thos Begbie has achieved the quality that the world demands of it. “But it hasn’t been easy,” Dreyer commented to Engineering News. Young engineers in companies abroad design products on computer-aided design systems that are difficult to manufacture. “A 2 m to 3 m casting with a 0.25 mm tolerance is tough to meet,” Dreyer confided, but with Dekra’s help, the company has succeeded in meeting the tightest of tolerances. On average, over the years, Thos Begbie has exported 50% of its production, with exports in some years being as high as 80%. It is now venturing beyond copper into stainless steel castings and grey-iron castings, where the required abrasive testing is considerably more stringent than for copper. The Dekra group is, in turn, also promoting its other business units in South Africa, including its automotive, industrial and personnel businesses, which provide professional and innovative services in vehicle inspections, expert appraisals, international claims management, consulting, industrial testing, product testing, certification, environmental protection and qualification.

CloudMargin's ability to aggregate data, automate margin calls and streamline communication is ideal for forward-thinking insurance companies like RSA Insurance Group that demand best-in-class solutions to support compliance and efficiency requirements." He added: "RSA's strategic step of onboarding CloudMargin means it has laid a foundation for the future. Those insurers who move more quickly to embrace the cloud will gain a competitive advantage that others may struggle to match, especially as firms look to operate within the new regulatory landscape." CloudMargin is built to handle complex collateral requirements with multiple counterparties. The platform also provides automated connectivity to global custodians, banks, clearing brokers and clearing houses in order to manage collateral across all asset types and instruments. With a 300 year heritage, RSA is a multinational quoted insurance group. Focusing on general insurance, RSA's core markets are the UK & Ireland, Scandinavia and Canada, with the capability to write insurance business in over 100 countries. RSA's core businesses have around 13,500 employees with net written premiums of £6.3bn in 2016. Headquartered in London, CloudMargin created the world's first cloud-based collateral management workflow tool, which has earned eight different industry awards since 2015 for innovation and best-in-class technology. The firm's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model is helping many of the leading financial institutions globally – including exchanges, brokerage firms, banks, asset management firms and insurance companies – meet time-critical regulatory deadlines and reduce costs associated with collateral requirements that are growing dramatically. CloudMargin bypasses many of the shortfalls of legacy, on-premise software, enabling clients to experience rapid implementation and access to robust and secure collateral management workflow software.

"Over the last few months information security has experienced both tremendous highs, and weathered scrutiny of lows as experts in private and public sectors debated various practices of information sharing. As a result of this increased exposure, it was critical to have an RSA Conference full of constructive dialog, discussion and debate that will form the information security agenda and continue to move our industry forward. We hope our attendees took this powerful opportunity as the chance to help forge a future we can all be proud of." The 20th Annual RSA Conference Awards program highlighted the work of three security professionals in the fields of mathematics, public policy and security practices. This year’s winners included: RSAC Unplugged London will take place on June 8, 2017. RSA Conference 2017 Asia Pacific & Japan takes place July 26-28, 2017 in Singapore. Additionally, RSA Conference returns to Abu Dhabi November 7-8, 2017. RSA Conference 2018 takes place April 16-20, 2018 in San Francisco. “Security is Cisco’s top priority and an essential part of every product that we build. We are always excited to be at the RSA conference. Engaging with the smartest infosec professionals from our customers, partners and the community provides us with important input into our strategy and roadmaps. The increasing size of this event illustrates the growing importance and investment that every company is making in information security. And that is good for us all.” - Jeff Samuels, VP Security Marketing, Cisco “RSA Conference 2017 brought together the business and government community at the forefront of the dramatic changes reshaping cybersecurity. This year’s conference provided a valuable backdrop for us to discuss critical issues like the need for new approaches to endpoint protection, and the challenge of eliminating the cost and complexity of security operations. FireEye places a high priority on threat intelligence and the insights learned on the frontlines of today’s cyber breaches, and RSA Conference 2017 reflected the defining developments we see emerging from the continually evolving threat landscape.” - Kara Wilson, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, FireEye "This year's RSA Conference challenged a big industry audience to think small. Small are the attack surfaces of security cameras, home routers, and mobile devices increasingly populating our office and home work environments. Small are the diverse data transactions that require innumerable protective measures. Big are the shifts in thinking that require us to think of ourselves as small players inside a vast ecosystem of solution providers. Thinking small is the first step in working together more effectively, and having a big impact with better outcomes." - Chris Young, General Manager and SVP, Intel Security “Security is a team sport. Splunk customers want solutions that work together in a coordinated and automated manner, using data, analytics, next generation firewalls, threat intelligence and other technologies to defend and protect against threats in real-time. We clearly saw at RSA Conference 2017 that the industry is moving in this direction. We heard repeatedly this year how emerging threats are disrupting and negatively impacting businesses across the globe, but the spirit of collaboration, powered by industry advancements in analytics and orchestration, were on full display at RSA.” - Haiyan Song, Senior Vice President of Security Markets, Splunk “In 2017 we continue to see a wide variety of attack types, yet many teams out there tell us they lack the proper tools or skills to address threats comprehensively. RSAC 2017 provided a valuable platform for the infosec community to come together and share ideas on how to pragmatically reduce risk for our organizations. With so many considerations – regulatory compliance, cloud, industrial OT environments – one message came through clearly: foundational security controls are more important than ever to establish resilient Infosec capabilities that deliver effective security regardless of what comes at you.” - Dwayne Melancon, Vice President of Products, Tripwire RSA Conference is the premier series of global events where the world talks security and leadership gathers, advances and emerges.
