Excellence in bituminous products
The Southern African Bitumen Association, established in 1979, is a non-profit organization that represents producers and applicators of bituminous products, consulting engineers and educational institutions.
Sabita places emphasis on engaging with stakeholders, particularly government, with regard to the need to maintain and improve roads infrastructure, and to create sustainable jobs.It interacts with all levels of government on these issues, and through its Local Government Empowerment Programme (LCEP) has given local government decision-makers a solid technical understanding of how maintaining their largest asset – their roads network – can improve overall service delivery.
Its main activities are in the fields of advancing best practice in Southern Africa in the:
use and application of bituminous materials;
in worker safety and environmental conservation;
education and training;
and contact with government on the value of road provision and preservation.
