Celebrating 100 Years of the Portland Cement Association

Published by

The Portland Cement Association (PCA) began a yearlong celebration of its 100th anniversary at the 2016 World of Concrete.

Over the last 100 years, PCA has become recognised as an authority on the technology, economics and applications of cement and concrete. PCA provides industry leadership and legislative advocacy in support of sustainability, infrastructure investment, and overall excellence in construction throughout the US.

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.
