New trade association formed for concrete drainage
Two existing trade associations that represent manufacturers in the precast concrete drainage industry have merged to form a new organisation, the British Precast Drainage Association.
The new body is the result of the integration of the Concrete Pipeline Systems Association (CPSA) and the Box Culvert Association (BCA), and will take its place takes its place as one of the specialist groups within the British Precast Concrete Federation.
Stuart Crisp, Business Development Director of the BPDA, says: “While the two product groups have distinct characteristics, there is much common ground in the use of concrete products in drainage applications. Bringing the two associations together allows us to combine our resources more efficiently to promote the benefits of precast concrete drainage solutions.”
A distinctive new logo marks the launch of the Association and although rebranding and replacing the wealth of technical data sheets and guidance notes will be a gradual process, a combined new website is now live at www.precastdrainage.co.uk.
“The concrete industry has some compelling product benefits to shout about,” continues Stuart Crisp. “Our mission is to provide measured and accurate information and to counteract situations where inadequate and misleading opinions prevail.”
