ASPE joins World Plumbing Council
The American Society of Plumbing Engineers was accepted as a full member of the World Plumbing Council.
The WPC was formed to encourage and facilitate the exchange of research and technology information applicable to the world plumbing industry, promote plumbing education and training worldwide, and promote the plumbing industry's role in improving public health through the provision and protection of safe water and sanitation. These objectives closely align with ASPE’s mission to advance the science of plumbing engineering and to ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public through the dissemination of technical data, research, and education.
“Being a member of such a prestigious organization with many of the same goals and interests of ASPE can only improve both organizations and promote sound engineering principles to protect the public’s health and safety throughout the world,” said ASPE president William F. Hughes Jr. “We are committed to providing expertise and assistance in helping the WPC achieve its objectives.”
This affiliation will provide new opportunities for ASPE members and the international plumbing engineering community. “ASPE members will be able to share information throughout the world with other experts in the plumbing industry,” Hughes said. “The sharing of this information will provide ASPE members the opportunity to review new and various technologies that are rapidly developing throughout the world.”

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
