To be a company that provides world-class materials and solutions into the basic services sector, while creating sustainable value for all stakeholders.


Our purpose is to empower people to experience a better quality of life.

Strength beyond existence

Established on the outskirts of Pretoria in 1892 as South Africa's first cement plant, PPC's story stretches back 126 years. Since the early gold-rush days, we have remained a resilient organisation that has adapted and flourished through changing economic and political circumstances, becoming a leading provider of quality building materials and solutions


A leading supplier of cement and related products in southern Africa, PPC has 11 cement factories in South Africa, Botswana, DRC, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Zimbabwe. PPC’s capacity is around eleven and a half million tonnes of cement products each year.

Throughout, we have focused on quality in everything that we do, growing into a business dedicated to perfecting the science behind producing cement, aggregates, lime, readymix and fly ash. A business that has built more bridges to connect communities, the buildings we call home and work across the continent; a business that has built world-class stadiums filled with home-grown and international fans; and a business that has improved lives and built schools to empower our communities and mould the minds of Africa's future leaders.

This dedication at PPC is embedded into our core business because we believe that every one of us deserves to live and build better for now, tomorrow and for generations to come. This belief ties into our company purpose to empower people to experience a better quality of life.

Our Strategy

We strive for excellence in all we do. We are focused on reaching our business objectives by following a definite strategy aimed at growth by introducing the FOH-FOUR strategic priorities: optimising the financial, operational and human capital of our group. We understand that addressing these priorities is our foundation for creating long-term sustainable value for all stakeholders in future.
