Plumbers' Success International's first summit meeting Sept. 17-18 attracted more than 250 people in St. Louis, according to the organization.

PSI, a residential plumbing service consolidator, discussed its exclusive market survey of 1,600 consumers who had called a plumbing service contractor within the previous 12 months.

The organization also talked about the state of the organization and its limited 577 territories in North America, and how to maximize advertising dollars.

PSI was founded by Jim Abrams, John Young and Mike Diamond earlier this year. It offers member contractors a curriculum of proven management programs "guaranteed" to increase their sales and profitability. PSI plans to make purchase offers among its member contractors with the goal of eventually taking the consolidated company public.
