Specify Concrete

About

The Pennsylvania Aggregates and Concrete Association (PACA), formed in 1982 by the consolidation of the Pennsylvania Aggregates Association and the Pennsylvania Ready Mixed Concrete/Sand & Gravel Association. In 2006, the Pennsylvania Concrete Promotion Council merged into PACA, becoming the concrete promotion arm of the organization. PACA is the industry’s unified voice in Harrisburg, representing more than 200 member companies, large and small, across the state.

PACA is a member-driven trade association, which deals with those issues and challenges that can best be solved through collective rather than individual efforts. PACA works closely with the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Environmental Protection, and Conservation and Natural Resources. PACA also represents the aggregates and concrete industries before the Pennsylvania General Assembly and communicates the industry’s point of view to state policy makers.

Lastly, PACA works synergistically with the industries’ two national organizations, the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association.

PACA developed and sponsors SpecifyConcrete.org to keep the industry informed of news and current and industry trends.  It is intended to educate and keep the industry and related producers and specifiers connected and engaged in the business of concrete and construction.
