Working in partnership with our members, our mission is to promote quality concrete pavements in the Commonwealth through technology transfer and by educating specifying agencies, legislators and government officials about the benefits to the traveling public and to the local economy of the Pennsylvania manufactured, environmentally responsible, safe, cost-effective Concrete Pavement investment.
Our membership base is open to contractors, cement companies, admixture suppliers, aggregate producers, affiliates, consultants, equipment manufacturers/suppliers, fly ash producers, truckers, material manufacturers/suppliers, ready mixed concrete producers, bonding and insurance companies, and others who are steadfast in their commitment to quality concrete pavements.
We provide resources that assist members in technical expertise, design, specifications, construction and restoration and in market development. We work hard to represent and promote the concrete pavement industry in federal, state and local legislative matters affecting surface transportation.
The ACPA Pennsylvania Chapter was incorporated in 2006 to focus on improved customer service and in the promotion of quality concrete pavements in the Commonwealth. For fourteen years (from 1987 through 2005), these services were performed by the 13-state Northeast Chapter of
the ACPA. And from 1902 to 1986, the staff of the Portland Cement Association served the concrete and paving industries nationally and through several regional locations including offices in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
The ACPA Pennsylvania Chapter is one of over twenty ACPA State/Chapter Associations in the United States affiliated with ACPA/National, which was founded in 1964. The focus of ACPA/National is on providing services in support of local Chapter/State associations and in nationally promoting the benefits of concrete pavements for interstate highways, state and county highways, municipal streets, local roads, military facilities and airports.
