Who we are

For 125 years PPC has tracked the growth and development of southern Africa, playing a central role in infrastructure development across the region. From the roads and bridges that bring people and goods closer, the highways and airports that connect cities, countries and continents, to the buildings we call home and work. PPC has supplied some of southern Africa’s most iconic and strategic infrastructure projects including the Cape Town stadium, Union Buildings in Pretoria, international airports in Gaborone and Harare and beyond to Kigali’s convention centre and the Congolese trade centre in Kinshasa.

Over the years PPC has taken its philosophy of providing quality products to build a future that lasts beyond South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland, Mozambique and Zimbabwe to Rwanda and more recently, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia. Originally a cement company, PPC has extended its materials and solutions portfolio to include lime, readymix concrete, fly ash and aggregates.

As Africa’s upward economic growth trajectory continues and our cities remain among the fastest growing in the world, the need to upgrade existing and build new infrastructure becomes more critical. PPC is proud to be a trusted partner as we build Africa. The company continues to invest in technology to enhance energy efficiency to reduce air emissions, minimise waste production, recover and recycle raw materials and conserve natural resources, while producing a reliable and affordable supply of building materials to support the economies of the countries where we operate.

PPC is truly an African success story – a focused business that reflects the strength of its people, products and services. A story reflected in all aspects of daily life, and, above all, a story of our potential to change lives.

PPC. Our strength, your vision.
