  • 150 years of history. “But wait, I thought PHCCNC was just established! How can you claim 150 years of history?” PHCC of North Carolina is the result of merging two long established, well respected associations into one stronger and more effective voice for the cooling, heating, and plumbing industry in North Carolina. As stated on our About PHCCNC page, in 1910 the Master Plumbing Association began. Then in 1963 the Mechanical Contractors of North Carolina was initially founded as the NC Warm-Air Heating and Air Conditioning Contractors Association.  Two associations; 150 years of combined history; merged to form one new association, initially called the North Carolina Plumbing and Mechanical Association, to provide broader and stronger benefits to the entire mechanical and plumbing contractor industry; and now moving forward under a NEW NAME since a membership vote in July, 2015:  PHCC of North Carolina!!
