JOHANNESBURG/DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish building materials firm CRH (CRH.I) has made a cash bid for cement maker PPC (PPCJ.J), taking on South African rival Afrisam [AFRSMV.UL] and Switzerland's LafargeHolcim (LHN.S). PPC, which did not disclose the value of CRH's non-binding offer, said on Monday it would give the Irish group time for due diligence and to submit an updated bid next week.
