According to the Canadian Institute Of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH), PHCP wholesalers’ December sales were the best month in more than five years. Total product sales were up 13.8% or $40.5 million compared to December 2007.

Year-to-date total product sales were up 2.6% or $126.9 million for a year-to-datetotal of $5 billion…a new industry record! All regions were up with very good growth in all product categories.

Early reports, however, indicate that the industry has already started to see a slow down in January.
