About

The Plumbing Products Industry Group has become much more than a collective industry body.

In the modern era Governments especially are looking for a clearly identifiable stakeholder to be involved in formulating government policy and regulations. The flip side of this being when controversy erupts after the event, the industry body will become part of the defence mechanism. This puts a significant demand on both the professionalism and time involved in the initial canvassing of members’ views and the subsequent analysis, consulting and provision of advice to regulators or Government agencies. It becomes doubtful whether the old idea of part-time/ spare-time involvement is viable.

The current environment also brings with it opportunities.

The volume market is going to continue to become increasingly the domain of low-cost importers. While this remains a significant part of PPI Group’s representation, the message seems to be that many established companies are finding themselves diversifying into many more complex and lower volume products to meet regulations especially in the area of water and energy efficiency.
