Pretoria Portland Cement (PPC) is celebrating its 100th year as a listed company on the JSE, and its chief executive Paul Striver has paid tribute to the company’s past leaders and their visionary leadership.

Over the past 118 years PPC developed into a leading cement, aggregates and lime production and distribution company, which has played a vital role in the history and overall development of southern Africa.

Established in 1892 with a factory in Pretoria, the company has grown to include operations across the country and in Botswana and Zimbabwe.

It is a reliable supplier of cement and materials into the civil, commercial and residential sectors throughout South Africa.

The company said it has continued to play an integral part in the construction of South Africa’s infrastructure, monuments and national landscape as well as contributing to the daily lives of people in cities, towns and rural communities.

“We are looking forward to the next hundred years with confidence, resolve and determination,” Striver concluded.
