Raleigh, N.C. — The North Carolina Plumbing and Mechanical Association was signed into existence last week, completing a year-long merger between two long-standing trade associations. After years of consideration and unanimous approval from their memberships, Mechanical Contractors of North Carolina (MC of NC) and Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors of North Carolina (PHCC-NC) combined the nearly 150 years of service to the state to form a new trade association, NCPMA.
“We believe that completing this merger is important because it is for the greater good of our industry,” said Charlie Oxford, the outgoing president of PHCC-NC. “Combining the efforts of PHCC-NC and MC of NC into one association will allow us to better serve the industry.”
Rodney Pressley, outgoing president of MC of NC echoed Oxford’s feelings and looked towards the future. “As members of MC of NC, we are very excited about this merger and look forward to getting everyone involved to make NCPMA a great association,” said Pressley.
