PPI Division’s New Name Reflects Expanding Use Of HDPE Conduit

The Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), the major trade association representing all segments of the plastic pipe industry, has renamed its Conduit Division as the Power & Communications Division (PCD).  This change was prompted by growth within the division, uses of conduit in rapidly developing applications, and to reflect the types of solutions that high-density polyethylene (HDPE) conduit can provide.

Comprised of conduit manufacturers, equipment suppliers, accessory producers and other companies, the Power & Communications Division focuses on educating specifiers, end users and installers. PCD is also the industry liaison to government agencies and cooperates closely with standards development organizations such as AASHTO, ASTM, NEMA and UL.

“It is imperative that the power and communications industries have access to solid, vetted and impartial facts and information, which is the primary goal of PPI’s PCD,” stated Lance MacNevin, P.E., director of engineering, PCD. “The new division name exemplifies our focus on the solutions that HDPE conduit provides, and not just the product itself.”
