The use of readymix concrete is growing in leaps and bounds as the Southern Africa Readymix Association (Sarma) continues its drive to make accredited readymix concrete the building material of choice. This year the large-scale uptake of readymix concrete by construction firms, municipalities, roads authorities and other role players has led to a massive increase in concrete suppliers seeking memberships with the Southern Africa Readymix Association (Sarma), as they apply for accreditation from the highly respected industry body.

The Consumer Protection Act, which came into effect on1 April 2011, protects customers, but it also highlights the important role that industry bodies play in their respective fields. SARMA – the Southern Africa Readymix Association – represents the readymix concrete industry in Southern Africa. There are different types of readymix, with different strengths to suit specific applications. Information on the different products is available on the SARMA website and the association advises that customers should know what they want to use the readymix for and should make this clear to the supplier when an order is placed.
