Collectively, for more than 100 years, The Wholesaler, PHC News and Plumbing Engineer magazines have been the trusted information sources for distributors, contractors and engineers in the plumbing, heating, cooling and piping industry. With a combined total of 162,000 monthly readers, the three brands represent the culmination of the market, supplying its industry with the information it needs to thrive.
For more than a year now, TMB Publishing has been planning and developing a vibrant ecosystem that merges the three brands online where you can discover and share information on one thoughtful, comprehensive platform. We’d now like to welcome you to PHCPpros — your professional plumbing, heating, cooling and piping community.
PHCPpros will deliver sought-after information you need to design, manage, sell, and compete — all available in a new, user- and mobile-friendly website. Our industry is changing quickly and we want to be on the forefront of that change with you.
We’ve always brought you up-to-the-minute news you’re unlikely to find elsewhere, as well as product releases and in-depth articles on industry trends and processes. Now, it’s available in a more intuitive and organized site. There are five main tabs for everything: Products, Projects, How-To, Business, and Codes & Standards. Whether you’re a distributor, contractor or engineer, you can easily navigate to learn about a boiler or understand how technology can help make your business more efficient — it’s all here on one site.
On the Products tab, you’ll find new product releases from Bath & Kitchen, Fire Protection, HVAC, Hydronics/Radiant, Plumbing, PVF and Tools manufacturers. As we get them, we post them, so you will always have access to the latest products available.
The Projects tab is home to all projects from commercial and residential, to remodeling, retrofit and green building. Here we highlight projects that involve a new method or product, or perhaps required a little extra imagination to complete.
The How-To tab is divided into three sections: design, legal matters and management. Here, you’ll have access to everything from answers to common questions to new ways to be more efficient and productive in your operations. Our columnist, also known as industry thought leaders, provide helpful tips and guidance.
Under the Business tab, you’ll find up-to-the-minute industry news from mergers and acquisitions to buying groups and association announcements. If it’s related to the plumbing, heating, cooling and piping business, you’ll find the information here.
Last, but certainly not least, the Codes & Standards tab provides the most up-to-date information on all codes and standards that effect the way you do business.
In addition to the five main tabs, the Buyers Guide tab will serve as your No. 1 source for a comprehensive directory of products and services. As a reader, you can sort through to find exactly what you’re looking for. As a manufacturer, you can easily list your products within 125 categories and reach the industry as a whole.
You’ll find all the above-mentioned tabs on the home page along with our Featured articles, which will be home to breaking news and exclusive content; all of our Columnists, who will provide opinions and insights on issues affecting the industry; a list of upcoming events; action videos and so much more.
We encourage you to navigate through the entire website and familiarize yourself with the tool that will help you be more efficient and stay ahead of the game.
