PPC - June 2013
June marks the launch of PPC’s online news service, which will provide regular updates and information to the cement industry. The new service replaces the now defunct Cement and Concrete Institute (CCI), which collapsed in April this year amidst claims that it was failing to provide the services required by the industry. PPC, Lafarge and AfriSam all withdrew their funding for the CCI although PPC is believed to have now employed three former senior staff members from the institute to run its new online service. The CCI has now become the Concrete Institute (CI) with backing from Dangote-owned Sephaku Cement.
