CLEVELAND, Ohio, Apr 7, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation, the world leader in chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) resins and compounds used in plumbing, fire sprinkler systems and industrial piping, has renewed its commitment as an Affiliate Sponsor of the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE).
As an Affiliate Sponsor, Lubrizol affirms its support for ASPE and its more than 6,000 members nationwide. The relationship with ASPE provides Lubrizol with a direct connection to the organization's members, who make specification decisions about the plumbing piping systems used on building and construction projects. Sponsorship also gives Lubrizol continuing opportunities to build name recognition with the national plumbing engineering community. Lubrizol product and service information is distributed through a variety of ASPE communication channels including its official publication, Plumbing Engineer; its newsletter, ASPE Pipeline; its website, ASPE.org; other print and digital social media outlets; and the society's professional and educational events.
"Lubrizol's support of ASPE is greatly appreciated," says David Jern, ASPE director of affiliate relations. "We've seen their involvement grow over the past year. From educational workshops and networking events to producing exceptional products and providing excellent service to the engineering community, Lubrizol's contributions have enhanced the overall quality of plumbing engineering and our organization."
The Lubrizol-APSE affiliation has been valuable for both entities. Lubrizol's CPVC business recently received the ASPE Industry Award for Outstanding Service to the Advancement of Plumbing Engineering Technology. The biennial honor, given to a company that brings unique and substantial benefit to the industry, was presented at the organization's convention in Chicago, IL. in late 2014. Lubrizol earned the award based on the contributions of its FlowGuard Gold(R) and BlazeMaster(R) brands of pipes and fittings. FlowGuard Gold pipe and fittings is the most widely used CPVC plumbing system in the world, and the FlowGuard Gold brand is recognized internationally for its durability and inherent health benefits. Lubrizol CPVC also accepted the ASPE Excellence in Exhibition.
"We view our association with ASPE as a long-term relationship," says Calvinia Fields, marketing specialist Americas, Lubrizol CPVC Piping Systems. "It's an honor for the Lubrizol CPVC team to be recognized, and we're pleased we can contribute to the industry. We will continue sharing our knowledge with APSE and look forward to supporting its members every way we can."
Lubrizol provides association members with a variety of ASPE accredited educational programs and opportunities. In early February, Lubrizol sponsored several ASPE events in San Antonio, TX, including workshops in green plumbing design and intermediate plumbing design, along with an after-work social get-together for ASPE Young Professionals. In addition, Lubrizol sponsored hands-on intermediate and advanced Revit MEP workshops in Austin, TX. Lubrizol will continue to sponsor key ASPE association events throughout 2015.
