The Greater Boston PCA was first organized in 1883 and formally established in January 1917 as the Master Plumbers Association of Boston and the Vicinity. In July 2015, the Association changed its name to become the Greater Boston PCA in order to better represent its new affiliation with the Mechanical Contractors Association of America, and the continued goals of advancing the plumbing contracting industry in Boston.

Currently the association serves about 40 Plumbing Contractors in the area. Over 100 years after its inception, Greater Boston PCA is still striving tirelessly to improve the plumbing contracting industry and our member’s businesses.
