Porcelain Enamel Institute, Inc
The Porcelain Enamel Institute, Inc. (PEI) is an organization of volunteers who actively support the porcelain enamel industry in North America; this includes the actual enamelers as well as many companies who provide raw materials, equipment and technology. The institute accomplishes this support through our staff, office and a variety of operating committees – our committee participants are drawn from volunteers within our member companies. This collective effort from many individuals across the industry (enamelers and suppliers) enables PEI to successfully advance the common interests of our members and industry.
As with most trade associations, the benefits that any business derives from PEI are proportional to its participation in the meetings, programs and activities of the association. PEI generally focuses in the following three areas: Technology, Marketing and Government/Industry Liaison.
Overall PEI is strong because of this support and participation by its member companies. We are here to serve our members and strive to respond to any specific needs or requests. With that support PEI will remain a strong, visible force training the enamelers, sustaining the technology and promoting the advantages of porcelain enamel.
