"As long is there is civilization, there will be a need for concrete." These are the powerful words spoken by Portland Cement Association (PCA) President and CEO James G. Toscas to commemorate the company's 100-year anniversary. While 100 years is a huge accomplishment for any company, Toscas celebrating more than just PCA: he's celebrating the growing concrete industry.
Toscas notes the role that concrete plays and will continue to play in building a resilient and sustainable world:
Nearly 100 years ago, PCA's first chairman remarked that unlike many other human activities, building with cement and concrete adds to the permanent wealth of a community. Today, as we look upon the extensive transportation systems and magnificent cities that we have built since then, and that will continue to serve us today and in the future, we see the truth of those words.
