RICHMOND, Va. - The Plumbing and Mechanical Professionals of Virginia (PMPV) has announced its endorsement of the Service Roundtable, Dallas. Service Roundtable, in turn, has endorsed the contractor group. The two organizations said they intend to work together to advance contracting excellence in Virginia.

"We're happy to work with the Service Roundtable," said Merry Beth Hall, PMPV executive director. "It offers affordable solutions for contractors seeking to improve their sales, marketing, and profitability. The group is extremely complementary to our efforts to provide local training, industry relations, and legislative representation."

"The Service Roundtable is a strong supporter of trade associations," said Service Roundtable chief executive officer Matt Michel, "and the PMPV is a tremendous statewide trade group. Virginia contractors are fortunate to have them as a resource. For our part, we're honored to be able to work with them."

PMPV is a chartered affiliate of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors-National Association (PHCC). PMPV members cover the entire range of plumbing and HVAC contractors in Virginia - from small companies to large contractors - with a wide range of services covering residential and commercial projects.

PMPV's mission is to provide networking, information, education, and training to its statewide membership, as well as tracking legislation and providing a forum for problem solving. For more information, visit
