ROLLING MEADOWS, IL -- Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) is pleased to announce three new members: Chase Brass & Copper Company, Inc. and Mueller Brass Company have joined PMI as Supplier Allied Members, and CSA International has joined as a Certifier Allied Member. The latest additions to the PMI roster join International Association of Plumbing and Manufacturing Officials (IAPMO) and LSP Products Group as new members in 2012.
Chase Brass & Copper Company, Inc. produces brass rod for the plumbing industry. Mueller Brass Company is a manufacturer of standard and lead-free wrought brass alloys for plumbing and industrial applications. CSA International tests products for compliance to national and international standards, and issues certification marks for qualified products.
These new Supplier and Certifier Allied Members join LSP Products Group, a privately owned corporation based in Irving, Texas, which became PMI's most recent manufacturing member and IAPMO, PMI's charter Certifier Allied Member.
PMI has recently opened its membership to accredited certifier organizations that are qualified to certify products to plumbing codes and consensus standards and also to supplier companies that provide raw materials and sublet processing, e.g., brass suppliers, steel suppliers or plating services to the plumbing industry. PMI recognizes the important role certifiers and suppliers play in the plumbing manufacturing industry and believe the Allied Member category is the ideal way to include these organizations in PMI's mission to be the voice of the industry.
Allied Members receive a number of the benefits of PMI membership, including access to PMI publications, attendance at PMI's semi-annual meetings, invitations to receptions, dinners and other social events held in conjunction with the PMI semi-annual conferences and more, all at a special Allied Member rate.
