The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) has a new President. Richard Perrins from Saddleworth, who has been an APHC Director since 2009, has taken up the chains of office. In his inaugural speech at the President’s Dinner on 6 July, he spoke about the reasons why he believes installers and manufacturers should be a member of APHC and how he intends to spread the word regarding the benefits of membership.
“APHC membership can reassure customers regarding professionalism,” said Richard. “We have collective lobbying power to influence change and collective buying power to offer discounts on products and services, and we facilitate industry discussion, offer training and provide training rewards to assist with raising industry standards. The plumbing and heating industry is constantly evolving and APHC proactively provides timely information and advice to assist members with understanding what will be required from them. Ultimately, I know it provides the best kind of professional support that can help members run successful and prosperous businesses in what is an ever competitive and regulated market.”
The dinner also raised £320 for Macmillan Cancer Care through signing guests up to join the Saddleworth & District Ferret Breeders and Turnip Growers Association (Affiliated) which was set-up in 1995 as a novel way to raise money for charity which over the years has raised thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Care.
