|Hansgrohe and PMI news|
Hansgrohe’s Sharon Murray, national market development manager, and Nicolas Grohe, director of marketing and product development – North America, recently visited Plumbing Group editors at BNP Media’s Bensenville office to show the company’s new iBox Universal Plus, which it will feature at K/BIS. It is one valve that fits thermostatic or pressure balanced and works for all Axor and Hansgrohe shower styles. Its ports are fully sealed against leaks. Rubber seals on the inlet and outlet ports absorb noises.
The Plumbing Manufacturers Institute hired Charles Hernandez as technical specialist, responsible for fielding and researching members' technical questions, analyzing and reporting on proposed code and standard changes and attending and monitoring code and standard hearings and meetings. He has been a licensed plumber and most recently worked as an independent consultant, providing guidance on project management, efficiency improvements and maintenance management.
