PMI to Showcase Economic Impact in Arizona during Phoenix Conference

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Economic data gathered for Plumbing Manufacturers International show that the plumbing manufacturing industry provides 9,697 jobs and $474.6 million in wages to individuals working in Arizona. The total economic impact of these jobs and wages within Arizona is $1.46 billion and results in $188.6 million in business taxes paid to federal, state and local governmental entities.

Collected by research firm John Dunham & Associates on behalf of PMI, the data includes jobs and wages directly provided by plumbing manufacturers, as well as jobs and wages provided by industry suppliers and re-spent income. PMI CEO/Executive Director Kerry Stackpole and JDA Partner Sean Reilly will be available to discuss the industry’s economic impact in Arizona before and during the PMI Conference, to be held Nov. 5-8 in Litchfield Park, Arizona. Reilly will present the economic data to the conference participants at 2:40 p.m. on Nov. 7.

The study’s data can be viewed via a web-based tool that generates plumbing manufacturing industry economic data tables and reports, which can be tailored to show national data or data by state, congressional district, state house district or state senate district.

Issues to be covered during the conference include municipal water use, water-efficient products, home building, trade and tariffs, media, legionella, sustainability and more.
