About us

British Precast

British Precast is the trade association for precast concrete manufacturers and members of the supply chain. The main aims of the federation are to promote precast concrete in the construction market and to disseminate information, through a range of industry representation and by shared knowledge, to add value to its member companies. With a growing membership of over 60 precast concrete manufacturer members, and more than 100 supply chain organisations, members' interests are continually developed through our team of dedicated professionals who have extensive connections with organisations in the UK and worldwide.

British Precast is part of The Mineral Products Association (MPA), the trade association for the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar and silica sand industries. For further information contact us.

All of our precast concrete members manufacture and supply in the UK. All British Precast manufacturing members are required to sign up to the British Precast Charter Membership Scheme, which includes signing both the Health & Safety and Sustainability Charters. These charter schemes are part of the ‘Raising the Bar’ initiative, which demonstrates our members’ commitment to zero harm and improving environmental performance in the industry. Find out more about the charters here.

We support members in raising the bar of the industry, and protect our members’ interests in technical standards and industry guidance, delivering information and support.

British Precast additionally hosts a number of events throughout the year, representing our members’ interests throughout the supply chain, and promoting best practice and responsible supply.  These events offer a great networking opportunity and a chance to learn from industry experts covering all aspects of the business.

A little history…
