Welcome to the 2017 edition of the PEI Membership
To many of you who have received this Directory for
years—or decades for some—it may appear at first blush
that not much has changed. The Directory continues to
hover around the 500-page level, the front of the book is
filled with useful information about PEI and the industry we
serve, and the rest of the publication contains information
about the companies that comprise the industry, first
grouped by location and followed by an alphabetical listing.
Same ol’ same ol’, right?
What may surprise you is the tremendous number of changes PEI member
companies have made to their listings. Nearly 150 new companies have been
added since the 2016 edition. Just a shade under 100 company listings have been
deleted for one reason or another. Branches have been added and removed . There
have been dozens of address changes, more than a thousand personnel changes,
scads of adjustments to the lines distributors carry, and most company descriptive
paragraphs have undergone some sort of editing during 2016. Change is constant in
our industry, and each edition of the PEI Directory reflects this certainty.
If you need to keep up-to-date on a daily basis, don’t forget that the 2017 PEI
Directory is available online at www.pei .org/directory. The online listing shows
changes as soon as they are made by members or your PEI staff, 24/7, 365 .
So recycle the 2016 Directory and use this one instead . Given the fast-paced world of
petroleum and fuel handling equipment, you’ll be glad you did .
Thank you for your support of PEI, its programs and the 2017 PEI Directory.
