New Name & Website for PPI Division

The Plastics Pipe Institute Inc. (PPI) announced that its Corrugated Plastic Pipe Assn. (CPPA) Division has become the Drainage Division of PPI. In addition to the new name announcement, the division introduced its new website at the association’s annual meeting held in Naples, Fla., May 6 to 8, 2019.

“These two initiatives were undertaken in part because of the dynamic nature of this group of PPI members,” said Tony Radoszewski, CAE, president of PPI. “Ever since CPPA was formed, it has continued to grow along with the need and demand for large diameter pipe in storm water management projects. For decades, the division has focused on drainage whether it be to increase crop yield, provide a path for roadway runoff, construct underground detention basins or long-life culverts. The new division name was chosen to better distinguish the markets served by its members, which remain the gravity flow storm water, culvert, and drainage markets. And to further expand its leadership position in the industry, the Drainage Division has also greatly expanded its website content while making it easier to use.”
