PPC joins the Concrete Institute

The Concrete Institute (TCI) is pleased to announce that PPC has joined the founding members, AfriSam, Lafarge and Sephaku, as a fully-fledged producer member of the Institute.

Says TCI MD, Bryan Perrie: “PPC joining The Concrete Institute puts TCI in a better position to meet our objectives since the Institute is now significantly more representative of the cement and concrete industry.”

Perrie says the objectives of TCI include the provision of key independent services and functions to the construction industry. It is also tasked with promoting and protecting the good name of cement and concrete, ensuring relevant national standards and specifications are revised regularly, and interacting effectively with government and regulatory bodies on behalf of the cement, concrete and broader construction industry.

Formed originally as the Portland Cement Institute (PCI) before becoming the Cement & Concrete Institute (C&CI), TCI represents nearly all of the main cement producers as well as some heavyweight associate members including Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA), South African Forum of Civil Engineering Contractors (SAFCEC), and the South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE).
