Spring 2016

President's Message

So here we are in the Spring of 2016, actually waiting for the real Spring to arrive. Most of us in the heating business have just witnessed one of the mildest winters in years. I would like to remember this winter as the winter that wasn’t.

This winter has reminded us that our industry not only relies on heating work and equipment replacements. Building and servicing our customer base, along with servicing our clients’ plumbing issues, keeps us all “in the game.” As most of us know and have experienced, service work keeps the engine running even though Mother Nature deals us a different deck of cards. It is why we belong to a great organization like the PHCC Long Island. The networking we experience at every meeting helps fuel our businesses with fresh new ideas that another contractor has already tried. This is one of the main reasons I enjoy this organization. It is a great feeling to be able to ask questions, learn new technology and sometimes commiserate with fellow contractors.

We all share the similar gene to be the leaders of our businesses and to keep our employees operating at their best. It is a never ending task to be a leader and be able to train future leaders of our industry, with assistance from great organizations. I always say this association is only as good as what we put into it. Yes, it’s a lot of work, but the rewards are countless.

I ask everyone to take a few minutes to investigate our national website (www.phccweb.org) and see what we have to offer.

Best People …Best Practices…That’s our motto!

We recently changed our name to the Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Contractors of Long Island (PHCC LI). We have received many inquiries about expanding into Suffolk County to offer contractors a source of support in today’s challenging business world. Our goal is to “Make our Local Industry Better”.

As always, we invite all plumbing contractors to stop by one of our meetings to see what we do and more importantly to see what you can do to make our industry better.

Our May 11th Membership meeting will show you who and what we are all about. Our Associate members will be in attendance to provide contractors with the most up to date technologies and equipment.

We will have special incentives for new members and hope to see everyone there.

See you all in May.


Thank You,

Your Comrade in PHCC (of Long Island)
