Concrete achiever awarded

07 December 2016

Southern Africa Readymix Association (Sarma) general manager, Johan van Wyk has been named the Concrete Society of Southern Africa’s Inland Branch Concrete Achiever of the Year for 2016. Inland branch chairman, Roelof Jacobs, commended Van Wyk for his invaluable contribution to the growth of readymix concrete, as well as promotion of concrete and the Concrete Society.

He added that it is a fitting award considering that Van Wyk will take over the reigns as Inland Chairman in March next year.

“For me it’s a humbling experience to be counted among some of the real concrete heavyweights who have been awarded the honour in the past. Concrete is the most used construction material and I am passionate about concrete being done right the first time. Education and training is a passion of mine and I live to transfer skills to everybody that has quality concrete in mind.

“Readymix is a perfect way to use concrete as it provides a more structured way to achieve quality concrete; and that’s why I think regulation of the readymix industry will give us better, more affordable concrete and structures in future,” says Van Wyk.
