National award for South Yorkshire business

A specialist cement manufacturing company from Barnsley has been presented with a top award at a ceremony hosted by national trade body the Property Care Association (PCA).

Natural Cement, based in Mapplewell, secured the Sustainability accolade for its commitment to driving forward environmental improvements across the business.

The company, which manufactures a range of mortars, grouts and shotcretes based on a sustainable binder - and supplied in fully recyclable packaging - has recently secured the environmental standard ISO14001.

Natural Cement was announced winner of the Sustainability award at a ceremony held at The Slate, University of Warwick.

Steve Hodgson, Chief Executive of the PCA, said: “Our members tackle a range of issues that can affect people’s homes and businesses, buildings of national importance or major infrastructure.

“Their talent and skills are highly valued, and our 2023 Best Practice Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the expertise and experience of our members.

“I congratulate Natural Cement on the professionalism and commitment to quality service that is recognised with this award.”
