Company Profile
The Copper Development Association Africa (CDAA) has represented the local copper industry in southern Africa since 1962 and now promotes copper usage throughout Africa. The CDAA’s head office is in Wadeville, Johannesburg and on behalf of its members, the organisation is committed to advancing and expanding the use of copper and copper alloys throughout Africa. The
CDAA, through continuous projects and trials, facilitates the adoption of downstream products and the uses and benefits of copper across a plethora of industries.

The retention of recycled copper is one of the prime objectives of the CDAA and is in constant engagement with government to make good quality copper scrap available for its manufacturing members at competitive prices.

CDAA is sponsored by the International Copper Association in Washington and the European Copper Institute in Brussels and this impressive platform of copper knowledge is supported by its own technical library which is available to members.
