MPA and British Precast deepen their alignment

Andy Dix

New working relationship set to strengthen precast sector’s influence within the industry

THE Mineral Products Association (MPA) has signed a service-level agreement to provide a wide range of management, administration and technical services to British Precast.

Staff will transfer from British Precast to the MPA to ensure that the current working relationships deepen and strengthen.


Andrew Minson, executive director of the MPA’s Concrete Centre, will now also lead and manage the new British Precast team as executive director. Martin Clarke, former chief executive of British Precast, will become senior director and company secretary, and provide consultancy services. Andy Dix, president of British Precast, will join the MPA board.

Mr Dix (pictured) said: ‘I am delighted that the evolution of the concrete industry is taking another major step forward. This new working relationship enables the precast sector to strengthen its influence within the industry and enables the industry to speak with one clear and more powerful voice.

‘I thank Martin Clarke for his leadership of the precast sector over the years and wish Andrew Minson every success as he leads British Precast as part of the wider MPA family.’

Nigel Jackson, chief executive of the MPA, said: ‘This development marks a very significant move forward for the industry to act in a more strategic, integrated and aligned way. It is vital that the industry can demonstrate its sustainability credentials as effectively as possible throughout the supply chain and to government. This new approach will ensure that the industry is able to achieve this.’
