Who we are

Who We Are

The National Association of Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors, PHCC, is the oldest trade organization in the construction industry and the largest in the plumbing, heating and cooling industry. The elements that have brought us this far have been the unique three tiered structure of the association. 1) The national level, where we constantly monitor legislation that affects PHC contractors. 2) The state level, where we keep up to date on state licensing laws, unfair utility competition, provide apprenticeship training, etc. 3) The local level, your PHCC of the Sacramento Valley, where it all comes together to provide training programs, personal service and interaction with your fellow contractors.

The members of PHCC are a diverse group of contractors, suppliers and manufacturer representatives. Our members are both large and small. They perform work on residential, commercial, industrial and institutional jobs. They run union and open-shops, and engage in maintenance, remodeling, and service & repair. Our membership also includes associates comprised of local wholesale suppliers and area manufacturer reps who contribute to our continuing education programs and promotion of the PHCC. Further, many fields are represented in the PHC industry: air conditioning, heating-warm air, heating-hydronics, backflow, plumbing, process-piping, refrigeration, fire sprinkler, sheet metal, and ventilation.

Your local association, the PHCC of the Sacramento Valley, stands out in the Sacramento PHC community through it’s dedication to keeping it’s members informed and prepared to compete in an increasingly competitive market area.
