MIDDLETOWN, NY — Build.com, an e-commerce and e-marketing company, has launched PlumbingHVAC.com, a new Internet venture that, according to Daniel Auer, Build.com president, “is destined to be the industry’s portal, the place where the industry meets, the default home page for industry participants.”

The site features a continuously updated manufacturers directory, which provides links to manufacturer websites and their wholesaler listings along with a manufacturers rep directory.

According to a company press release, “There is something for everyone at PlumbingHVAC.com: a new product showcase, an industry pressroom, links to industry publishers and associations, access to an online permit service, product comparison charts, build your own web page, and the two most interesting elements — the Online Store and Plumbing Connections.”
