The Spanish National Association of Ready-Mix Concrete Manufacturers (ANEFHOP) was established in 1968 to bring together the main ready-mix concrete manufacturers in Spain. It currently has 250 active members with more than 650 operational manufacturing plants, as well as 26 associate-member companies whose activity is related to the sector.
From its beginning, UNE has been associative ally of ANEFHOP. The two organisations cooperate closely and ANEFHOP is part of both the UNE governing bodies and its standardisation activities; leading the work on various technical committees and heading the secretariat of the CTN 83 "Concrete", as well as being responsible for a regulatory catalogue of more than 300 standards.
Vidal Medié, chairman of ANEFHOP, was presented by Julián Caballero, UNE's Assistant Managing Director, with a commemorative plaque as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations in recognition of its support for and involvement in standardisation.
