AfriSam is the proud sponsor of concrete for the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa.

AfriSam is not about what its concrete makes, but all about what its concrete makes possible. This supplier of cement and concrete solutions has been building solid foundations throughout southern Africa for over 80 years.

Richard Tomes, AfriSam’s sales and marketing executive, says the company is much more than merely a producer of cement, concrete and aggregate products and related services. “We are the brand that helps create spaces that foster life, relationships, stories and growth. At AfriSam, we are about creating concrete possibilities. This is underpinned by the company’s business practices that clearly demonstrate our commitment to a lasting legacy.”

AfriSam established its first cement plant in 1934 in Roodepoort, Gauteng and has since grown into a formidable construction materials group with operations in four African countries. The company’s pride in its African heritage was why is playing a role in the construction of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) by sponsoring concrete for the construction of the Museum.

Once completed, the Zeitz MOCAA will be a cultural institution that will focus on collecting, preserving, researching, and exhibiting cutting edge contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora. The museum’s name honours the renowned Zeitz Collection, which will form the museum’s founding collection. “As a company with our roots firmly anchored in African soil, we are extremely proud of our association with the Zeitz MOCAA and the role we can play in conserving our African heritage for future generations,” concludes Tomes.
