The Pigging Products and Services Association (PPSA) was founded in 1990 by Jim Cordell and now has over 120 members from over 20 countries, representing the pigging industry throughout the world.
The Association is entirely funded by its members through their annual subscription fees. Its aims are, “To promote the knowledge of pigging and its related products and services by providing a channel of communication between the members themselves, and with users and other interested parties”.
PPSA plays a major role in providing information and sourcing equipment and services, for pipeline operators and the industry generally and responds to hundreds of enquiries each year.
The PPSA web site enables visitors to source the products and services they need quickly and easily and provides a link to PPSA's technical information service.
PPSA runs seminars and training courses on pigging, sponsors lectures and meetings about the subject and supports relevant conferences.
Full members are companies manufacturing or marketing pigging products or services.
Associate members are companies connected with the industry, e.g. operators, supplier's and allied industries.
Individual members are anyone with an interest in pigging.
