The roots of Pretoria Portland Cement Company (PPC),  stretch back 118 years to 1892 when it established South Africa’s first cement plant on the outskirts of Pretoria to counter the exorbitant delivered cost of cement imported from Europe. Since those early gold-rush days on the Witwatersrand, PPC has proven its ability to adapt and flourish in changing circumstances – two world wars, a global depression and several lesser recessions, the booms and busts of the cement market, and considerable political turmoil that culminated in South Africa’s democracy.

Today, PPC is the leading supplier of cement in southern Africa through eight cement manufacturing facilities and three milling depots in South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe that can produce around eight million tons of cement products each year. PPC also produces aggregates, metallurgical-grade lime, burnt dolomite and limestone.
