A little history...

MPA Precast can trace its roots back to 1918. In 1964 the predecessor to MPA Precast, the British Precast Concrete Federation Ltd was formed through the merger of 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. In 2022 the members voted for the formation of MPA Precast as a product group of the Mineral Products Association.
