The purposes of the bureau are to:
- Develop and publish industry standards for contractor pumps and auxiliary equipment.
- Promote the common business interests of its members and the industry as a whole.
- Pursue other activities that may lead to cost effective production, improved customer service and increased knowledge in the manufacture of safer and more efficient products.
Membership in the CPB is open to any AEM member in good standing actively engaged in the manufacture and distribution of portable contractor pumps within the United States or supplying components to the manufacturers of those pumps.
The CPB usually meets twice/yr providning an industry forum for members to share their views on technical-safety issues, domestic and international regulation, and other issues of common interest.
CPB supports a Market Statistics program that tracks monthly shipments for 12 categories and sizes of pumps, within and without the U.S and Canada.
