A Little History...
Previously known as the trade association of precast concrete manufacturers, MPA Precast traces its roots back to 1918. In 1964 when MPA Precast was named British Precast Concrete Federation Ltd, the company was formed to bring together the Cast Stone & Concrete Federation and the British Cast Concrete Federation. In 2011, MPA Precast affiliated with the Mineral Products Association to provide its members with a stronger voice. Now, MPA Precast is part of the Mineral Products Association as a Product Group with the ultimate aims to promote both its Full and Associate Members as well as precast concrete in construction. MPA Precast further aims to disseminate information through industry representation. Members’ interests are continually developed by a dedicated team who is passionate to keep on extending its connections with organisations in the UK and globally.
