Cleveland Plumbing Industry Promotion & Education Fund
James J. Roddy, Chairman
CPI is a non-profit IRS 501(c)(6) organization established in 1963 in order to provide educational and promotional services for the plumbing contractors who contribute to the fund. CPI’s mission is to promote the plumbing industry while enhancing the quality and safety of plumbing systems.
Who Operates CPI:
CPI is operated solely by plumbing contractors. It is a division of the Cleveland Plumbing Contractors Association who appoints members to act as Trustees of the fund. CPI employs a staff to implement the programs directed by the Trustees.
Who are CPI Contractors:
CPI contractors are based in Northeast Ohio and are signatory to the local Collective Bargaining Agreement with Plumbers Local #55. They are all bonded, State certified, locally licensed, insured, and pay workers compensation, unemployment compensation and benefits to all employees. The average CPI contractor has been in business for 26 years and many for over 50 years. The oldest firm has been in business for over 100 years. All CPI contractors are required to attend continuing education classes to keep abreast of the latest technologies and regulations. Safety is important to CPI contractors who all hold the required OSHA certifications. The State of Ohio will deceritify any contractor who performs below the industry standard or who engages in business improprieties. The State has never deceritified a CPI contractor.
What type of Plumbing do they do:
CPI contractors are experienced in all types of plumbing installation and service such as: commercial, residential, industrial, medical, institutional, water treatment, waste water treatment, utility, government, remodel and retrofit.
