Beschloss, whose association with the magazine dates back to its infancy under founder Charlie Horton, debuts his “Beschloss Perspective” column here.

As part of his partnership with Supply House Times parent company BNP Media, Beschloss will contribute to all BNP Media Plumbing Group publications and their associated e-media properties. His writings also will appear in the January issues of Plumbing & Mechanical and PM Engineer and will frequently be featured in PVF e-news, Supply House Times’ bi-weekly e-newsletter covering the industrial pipe, valves and fi ttings market.

Additionally, BNP Media is creating a dedicated “Beschloss Perspective” website that will provide an additional digital outlet for Beschloss’ long-running newsletter bearing the same name. The website will debut in 2013.

“Morrie Beschloss’ knowledge and expertise further strengthens Supply House Times’ and the BNP Media Plumbing Group’s roster of industry-leading columnists,” Supply House Times Editor Mike Miazga said. “We look forward to bringing Morrie’s insights to our readers through our various print and e-media platforms.”

Plumbing Group Publisher Bob Miodonski added: “I’ve known Morrie Beschloss for 20 years. Safe to say, no one knows the PVF industry better – or cares about it more – than Morrie does.”

Through a broader agreement with Supply House Times partner American Supply Association, Beschloss joins the association as its industry analyst. Supply House Times is the offi cial publication of ASA.

Beschloss, a recent recipient of ASA’s Fred V. Keenan Lifetime Achievement Award, will provide analysis to ASA senior staff and volunteer leaders of the association’s Industrial Piping Division on PVF trends in key segments such as energy, chemical and industrial markets. His vast array of knowledge in these areas will assist the association in the continued development of its ongoing strategic planning to best position ASA members for long-term success.

He will become a principal author to the association’s PVF Outlook publication and will be featured in ASA Insights, the association’s weekly e-newsletter.

“We are excited about Morrie agreeing to join us and our association’s offi cial publication. His vast knowledge and insight of the forces that impact the PVF markets will greatly assist our members to navigate the future,” ASA Executive Vice President Michael Adelizzi said. “We believe this new direction will vastly expand the availability of Morrie’s expertise not only throughout industry circles, but also to the 20,000 industry customers who now receive our quarterly PVF Outlook publication.”
