BAR members to affiliate to MPA

Mineral Products Association

British Association of Reinforcement members agree to affiliate to Mineral Products Association

ON 26 June, the member companies of the British Association of Reinforcement (BAR) formally agreed to affiliate with the Mineral Products Association (MPA).

Welcoming the decision, Graham Mackenzie, chairman of BAR, commented: ‘I am delighted that we have taken this important step in affiliating the UK reinforcement representational body with other concrete organizations.


‘BAR has a good history of representing the reinforcement sector, but the challenges in front of all of us are considerable. There is more need than ever for us to work with like-minded materials and product interest organizations.’

Nigel Jackson, chief executive of the MPA, said: ‘We are delighted with this very positive move by the BAR members and warmly welcome them into the MPA family. They will bring a large and valuable product into our organization.’

He added: ‘This move represents another significant step in the evolution of the trade representation of the industry from a number of fragmented organizations into a genuinely sectoral body that promotes and protects all its members’ interests and enables more effective and influential dialogue with government and other key stakeholders.’
