  The Mineral Products Association  

The Mineral Products Association (MPA) is the trade association for the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar and silica sand industries. With the affiliation of British Precast, the British Association of Reinforcement (BAR), Eurobitume, MPA Northern Ireland, MPA Scotland and the British Calcium Carbonate Federation, it has a growing membership of 520 companies and is the sectoral voice for mineral products. MPA membership is made up of the vast majority of independent SME quarrying companies throughout the UK, as well as the 9 major international and global companies. It covers 100% of UK cement and lime production, 90% of GB aggregates production, 95% of asphalt and over 70% of ready-mixed concrete and precast concrete production. In 2016, the industry supplied £18 billion worth of materials and services to the Economy. It is also the largest supplier to the construction industry, which had annual output valued at £169 billion in 2018. Industry production represents the largest materials flow in the UK economy and is also one of the largest manufacturing sectors.

We represent our members' interests on policy, planning and technical matters with government departments, local authorities, professional trade bodies and other key audiences at European, national and local levels.

Our regional structure, based on UK economic and planning regions, enables us to enter into dialogue with all interested parties at county and local levels.

The following organisations are constituent bodies of the Mineral Products Association:

On our website you will also find information on sustainable development, inert waste, mineral planning, geodiversity, biodiversity and the ALSF, as well as environmental protection, resource conservation, sustainable construction, earth science and carbon reduction.

Did you know, for example, that each person in the UK uses four tonnes of aggregates each year? And that over the past 5 years, MPA members have planted a million trees? Or that the mineral products industry has helped to safeguard Britain's archaeology at a cost of around £10 million?
