The Board of Directors of Plumbing Manufacturers International has voted to approve Haws Corp. as the newest manufacturing member of PMI. With global headquarters in Sparks, Nev., Haws is a leader in manufacturing drinking fountains, tempered water systems, hydration stations and emergency response products, including drench showers and safety eyewashes.
“Haws is proud to once again join the PMI membership. PMI is a valuable asset to creating a collective voice and encouraging collaboration within the industry. We are eager to participate and support the combined efforts and advocacy for quality safety equipment and drinking water systems,” said Haws Corporation CEO Tom White.
Haws joins the roster of PMI manufacturing and allied members, who collectively represent 90 percent of the U.S. plumbing product market. With its PMI membership, Haws will have the opportunity to contribute to PMI’s advocacy for water-efficient plumbing products meeting high safety and performance standards, as well as to lend its voice to PMI’s work on plumbing codes and standards and important legislative and regulatory matters affecting the industry. In addition, Haws employees will have access to all PMI publications, resources, studies and conference calls covering various topics, including technical issues, advocacy/government affairs, and outreach/communications.
“We’re pleased to welcome Haws Corporation as a PMI member and look forward to their insight and contributions supporting our vision of safe, responsible plumbing,” said Kerry Stackpole, PMI CEO/executive director.
PMI will present Haws with its membership plaque at PMI’s upcoming conference, November 13-16, 2017, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Sonoma Wine Country, California.
