PETER JEFFERIES: President Pipe Fabrication Institute (PFI)

Peter Jefferies is the President of the Pipe Fabrication Institute (PFI).  The piping industry employs some of the most sophisticated and advanced technology in existence. The challenge for those involved in this industry is to remain informed and up-to-date on both current and future technology.

These systems are used in the most complex and sensitive facilities – nuclear and fossil fuel plants, refineries, steel mills and paper mills, chemical processing plants, semiconductor, pharmaceutical and many others – that must perform under great stress while adhering to strict safety, health and governmental regulations.

The PFI has an obligation to the piping industry and to the clients of that industry around the world; “To maintain the high level of excellence that has become associated with this organization during its many decades of existence”.

The Pipe Fabrication Institute (PFI) was formed in 1913. It is one of the oldest and most respected industry associations in the United States. The PFI exists solely for the purpose of ensuring a level of quality in the pipe fabrication industry that is without compromise. The primary purpose of the Pipe Fabrication Institute is to promote the highest standards of excellence in the pipe fabrication industry.
