Plastics Pipe Institute Announces Annual Award Winners

The Plastics Pipe Institute Inc. (PPI), the major North American trade association representing the plastic pipe industry, has announced the winners of its Projects and Members of the Year for 2022. The awards were presented during the group’s annual worldwide membership meeting held in Maui, May 9-12, 2023.

According to PPI President David M. Fink, there were a record number of submissions. “We had an all-time high number of exciting projects being submitted,” he stated. “This is reflective of the growing use of plastic pipe in so many different areas. During 2022, according to our data, shipments of pipe from our members grew by more than 20 percent, and the use of recycled post-consumer content increased to its highest level ever.  We also had a record number of attendees at this meeting that exceeded 450 members and guests.”

Each year the PPI membership reviews and votes on Project of the Year and a Member of the Year for each of the five PPI divisions – Building & Construction, Drainage, Energy Piping Systems, Municipal & Industrial, and Power & Communications. The PPI Member of the Year Award is for an individual’s outstanding support and contributions to the association and the industry.  

“It was very pleasing to see among the projects submitted there were many that had a positive impact on the environment. These included an underground rainwater collection system and a pipeline designed to protect the Great Salt Lake.”
