Kaytech has signed a distributorship agreement with Concrete Canvas SA to supply geosynthetic cementitious composite mats into the South African civil engineering industry, including road and rail applications.
Rustenburg-based block-making company Cemblocks recently acquired an additional two Birkenmayer (CMA member) block-making machines to increase its production capacity to 13-million bricks a month.
Echo prestressed hollow-core slabs have been used to roof a second storey added to MTN’s Data Centre in Centurion, Gauteng.
Frans Minnaar has been appointed Executive Director of the Concrete Manufacturers Association (CMA) with effect from March 2, 2015.
Minnaar, who has many years of experience in quality assurance for precast concrete products, succeeds Wally Armstrong, who held the post for the previous two years.
Minnaar spent over 10 years with the SA Bureau of Standards (SABS). He obtained a qualification as a civil engineering technician while there and worked as a standards inspector and ISO auditor – one of the first ISO auditors in the country after the international ISO Quality System Certification Scheme was adopted in South Africa.
Pam Zukor has retired after 13 years at the CMA as Office Manager and PA to the Director.
She joined the CMA in January 2002 and retired at the end of February this year.
Bidding farewell to her on behalf of the association and its members at the close of its Feedback Session in February, Financial Director John Simpson paid tribute to her for her loyal and dedicated service.
