Great Lakes Cement Promotion Council (GLCPC)
Great Lakes Cement Promotion Council, Inc. (GLCPC) is a Michigan nonprofit corporation that promotes the use of Portland and Masonry Cements and Concrete Products. GLCPC is active in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. GLCPC's members are seven cement manufacturers that produce or ship products in this region. Those members are:
Concrete is one of the most durable, versatile and widely used building materials on earth. GLCPC is dedicated to expanding the use of cement and concrete products in traditional and innovative applications. Toward that end, GLCPC invests in the promotion programs and activities of allied trade associations in the region, including ready mix, paving, pipe, precast and masonry associations. GLCPC believes in partnering with any organization within the region that promotes the use of cement and cement products, with the goal of optimizing its investment in the promotion of cement and concrete materials throughout the region. Information about GLCPC's promotion partners, and links to their web sites can be found through the "Partners" tab at www.glcement.org.
Much of the process of promotion is education. GLCPC believes that the more that architects, engineers and construction specifiers know about cement and concrete, the more it will be used. GLCPC's education efforts begin with providing design, instruction and reference materials to University and College professors and students. GLCPC invites students and instructors to look at our college programs and make use of any resources available there.
