The Corporate Report 2013: PIP — Process Industries Practices

EP Editorial Staff | December 19, 2013

2013, the year after we celebrated our 20th anniversary, has been a tremendous one for PIP – Process Industry Practices. We have added 11 new Members to our consortium since November 2012, bringing our Membership to 74 participating owner and contractor companies. Our Subscribers and Licensees have grown to 59 companies and educational institutions in 2013, from 46 in 2012. PIP Members continue to share the goal of reducing total installed costs of process plants by up to six percent through the implementation of common industry practices. Our Members also share the goal of spreading the use of PIP Practices across the industry, within the industry and to all other process industries to create a true “industry standard.”
