PMI Has a New Name

March 22, 2011

For 35 years, PMI was the acronym for the Plumbing Manufacturers Institute (PMI), however, it will now be known as Plumbing Manufacturers International. The updated name is intended to reflect the association and its members’ worldwide involvement and outreach.

With the new name, PMI also refreshed its brand identity, website and other communications materials that will be introduced throughout the year and culminate with its presence at Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, October. 4-7, 2011, in Toronto.

"Today, we live and work in a global marketplace. Just as industry issues have become international in scope, so has PMI," said PMI board of directors president Jack Krecek, VP and general manager of the commercial business unit for Elkay Manufacturing Co. "The association functions as a sounding board for its members, a source for industry and market information and as a coordinating and decision-making body for building consensus to positively influence and respond to industry issues. It is active in many arenas as it helps develop and maintain standards and codes, and works closely with government agencies at all levels."

PMI members will be introduced to the new name and identity at the PMI 2011 Spring Conference, March 27-30, in New Orleans, LA. In addition to the speakers and sessions, the conference includes dual tracks of marketing and technical meetings. These meetings' discussions will help determine the ongoing fulfillment of the association's mission in North America and the expertise it can share with other countries' plumbing industry leaders.
