Bill Brett, Chairman of the Brett Group has been appointed Mineral Products Association (MPA) Chairman for the next two years. He will be taking over from Dyfrig James, and of MPA’s four chairmen to date, is the second to serve from an independent company.
The MPA is the trade association for the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar and silica sand industries. With the recent addition of The British Precast Concrete Federation (BPCF) and the British Association of Reinforcement (BAR), it has a growing membership of 465 companies and is the sectoral voice for mineral products. The MPA also works to raise awareness of key issues such as sustainable development, biodiversity in restoration, quarry safety and cycle safety.
Nigel Jackson, Chief Executive MPA, paid tribute to Dyfrig’s contribution to MPA over the last two years saying “Members have appreciated Dyfrig’s inclusive approach and the efforts he has made to engage with all parts of the MPA, particularly in the Regions and of course his beloved Wales. Dyfrig has continued the tradition of communicating how it is possible to take a wider sectoral view for the good of all companies. MPA would like to thank Dyfrig for all his efforts and wish Bill Brett every success for his two year tenure.”
Bill Brett who has a wide range of commercial interests and industry involvement said “I am proud to take over the role of Chairman from Dyfrig, and am keen to contribute as fully as I can to the association and its activities over the next two years. I am passionate about strengthening the unity of this great sector which is so important to the UK and the recovery.”
