About IPHA

IPHA is a diverse organisation, with member companies drawn from around the globe. Active in research and development, with regular conferences and seminars enabling the exchange of information between members, it has been at the forefront of the hollowcore industry for 50 years.


Back in 1969, seven founding companies from different countries around the world had one thing in common — they produced prestressed hollowcore. 50 years later, the organisation they founded has grown to include more than 80 members from over 35 different countries.


The board of IPHA is responsible for fulfilling the objectives of the association, its strategy, general administration, and organisation of events. Separate committees deal with technical and marketing matters. Members can contact the board at any time.
