Membership of the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) now stands at 16, following the announcement of six new members. The US-based Portland Cement Association has also joined as an affiliate member.

New members include European multinationals Buzzi Unicem and Titan Cement, as well as Cementos Argos, which has operations in Latin and North America, as well as the Caribbean, and the largest cement company in Peru, Cementos Pacasmayo.

Leading Turkish cement company, Çimsa Çimento, and Thai-based cement producer, SCG Cement, complete the line up of new members.

“We are delighted to welcome further cement and concrete companies and like-minded organizations to the GCCA,” said Albert Manifold, GCCA President and CEO of founding member, CRH. “The GCCA was set up to provide the authoritative global voice for this essential sector. With every new member, that voice becomes even stronger.”
