The association’s objectives are to ensure and expand the market position of the building material ready-mixed concrete, to emphasize and assert the shared interests of the ready-mixed concrete producers, to avert unjustified claims, and to foster the image of the ready-mixed concrete industry. The BTB considers itself as a link among the ready-mixed concrete industry on the one side and politics, economy, and the public on the other.
Four issues are central for the association’s engagement:
1. Commercial policy
2. Concrete technology and environment
4. Education (Apprenticeship)
