Leader of cement, concrete industry marks milestone
SKOKIE, Ill. – The Portland Cement Association (PCA), the leading voice of the cement and concrete industry, kicked off a year-long celebration of its 100th anniversary at the 2016 World of Concrete.
Over the past century, PCA has become widely recognized as the authority on the technology, economics and applications of cement and concrete. As the voice of America’s cement manufacturers, PCA provides industry leadership and legislative advocacy in support of sustainability, infrastructure investment, and overall excellence in construction throughout the U.S.
Versatile, resilient and sustainable, concrete is one of the most widely used and effective building materials on Earth. Many concrete roads and buildings that date back to PCA’s founding a century ago remain in active use today, providing evidence of concrete’s durability and its long-standing role as a building block of society.
“PCA’s centennial year is an opportunity to celebrate not only the association, but also the tremendous progress the concrete industry has made—and will continue to make—in building a resilient and sustainable world,” says PCA President and CEO Jim Toscas.
The year will be filled with events that celebrate the past, present and future of concrete. A list of upcoming centennial events can be found on the PCA website, http://www.cement.org/top-resources/pca-centennial.
PCA has been a widely-recognized authority on the technology, economics, and applications of cement and concrete for 100 years.
