PPC Quality: Still PPC’s focus 125 years on

PPC’s celebration of 125 years of operation this year has given each of us much to reflect on. Reaching this incredible milestone is the result of an incredible collective effort that spans generations of committed team members and courageous leaders. It speaks to our ongoing pursuit of quality, and imbuing that into all we do and create: from products and solutions to active partnerships across sectors, stakeholders and communities. Above all, it’s given us the ideal platform from which to move into the next decade and century as we continue to show the market that, when it comes to cement, there’s much more to it…

The past decade has been an interesting time for most companies and brands operating here and across the continent. As our world becomes increasingly connected and complex, it has also become far less predictable and more dynamic – requiring a new response to both “cause” and “effect”. This continues to challenge all of us and, in the case of PPC, brings us back to our “why” of quality: the heart of our brand since the beginning.

And, while this relates to our manufacturing and stringent testing systems and processes, on a much broader scale quality is a challenge; a call to act in all we do.

 

Quality, mutually beneficial partnerships with our customers and other stakeholders have been the starting point for this approach. By giving customers access to world-class technical expertise from the outset – access to our laboratory, testing facilities, researchers and engineers across the business – we’ve created partnerships that speak directly to their strategic objectives and add lasting value. Moreover, we’ve been able to do this across our African footprint, using this as an opportunity to share skills, introduce relevant processes and build capacity.

 

In a similar way, using our naming rights of PPC Newlands as a catalyst for partnerships with the JP21 Project (JP Duminy’s NPO) and, more recently, the Temba Bavuma Foundation (Temba Bavuma’s cricket development initiative) has meant that we’ve additionally repaired and built cricket practice pitches and nets that children in Soweto and Mitchells Plain are already using. The September launch of our first PPC container in Ulundi (KwaZulu-Natal) at King Senzangakhona High School (in conjunction with a mobile science lab) also means that community members will now be able to buy quality building materials directly from the school – with all profits going back to the school. As PPC, we see these opportunities as just the beginning however; a taste of what’s possible and still to come. We’re looking forward to the next 125 years of partnership with our stakeholders across South Africa and the rest of the continent – and continuing to challenge and deliver on our definition of quality so that it remains relevant, meaningful and impactful.
