California Pipe Bursting Manufacturer, TRIC Tools, Joins Alameda Contra Costa PHCC for Christmas Celebration

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — TRIC Tools, Inc., a California Pipe Bursting Manufacturer, participated in the Alameda-Contra Costa Counties’ (ACCC) Plumbing Heating and Cooling Contractor’s (PHCC) Annual Christmas dinner December 9th at the San Ramon Crow Canyon Country Club. Michael Lien, CFO, and Jay Battin, Sales Representative, represented TRIC at the event. The PHCC Association gives Plumbing, Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, & Refrigeration (HVACR) contractors the resources they need to be the best and to continually improve their services. PHCC provides education and support through proven tools for running efficient and profitable operations; training and resources for safety, marketing and compliance; easy ways for connecting with fellow business leaders; and expert representation to ease burdensome regulations.

TRIC invented and patented the first Lateral Pipe Bursting System, eventually gaining national approval of HDPE pipes or trenchless home sewer replacement use in America. TRIC joined Alameda County’s Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors’ Association (PHCC) in 2014. TRIC greatly admires the mission of the PHCC and after a decade long relationship with many of its members, TRIC is proud to be a PHCC Association member.

Jay and Michael were glad to see Steve Ferguson of Mr. Rooter Plumbing, and Don Marshall of Harry Clark Plumbing. Both companies have owned TRIC’s Tools Pipe Bursting System for over a decade. At dinnertime, Jay and Michael had the pleasure of joining the Dan Bonnetti family of Frank Bonetti Plumbing. Michael Lien remarked, "The food, the dancing and our clients were all great to see at dinner."

TRIC wishes to thank all of its PHCC clients for another great year.
