Who is EFCA?

EFCA is a partnership of 11 National Admixture Associations, formed in 1984 in order to represent the interests of the industry at a time when there was increasing European legislation and standardisation in the field of construction products. It is the voice of the European admixture producers – EFCA’s total membership provides in excess of 80% of admixture sales within Europe and represents all the major admixture manufacturers. Locally, EFCA partners represent more than 80 producers in total. The total sales of admixtures by EFCA members in 2014 were in excess of 1 million tonnes.
