Mission Statement

The PVF Roundtable is an organization of firms involved in the Pipe, Valves and Fittings industry. The membership is dedicated to the continuing improvement of the quality process in our industry through collective changes resulting from improved communication methods, advances in education, organizational assistance in the standardization process and the implementation of collective efforts towards the solution of identified industry-wide problems throughout the entire PVF supply chain.


Membership is maintained by company and is open to all firms, organizations or individuals involved in the PVF field. The PVF Roundtable was formed in 1989 and was subsequently chartered as a Not-For-Profit Texas corporation. At present, more than 150 firms and organizations throughout the United States, Canada and Europe are on our membership list, representing virtually every level of the industry: manufacturers, distributors, fabricators, designers, construction firms, end-users, and standard-writing agencies. This varied and comprehensive membership ensures a unique industry forum, well suited to addressing common industry problems in an informal but effective manner. In addition to the original Gulf Coast Chapter, The PVF Roundtable has established two regional chapters on both the East and the West coasts, to address local issues. Please contact the PVF office or any officer for additional membership information.
