Welcome to the Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association
The Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association is a cutting-edge nonprofit organization whose mission is to create competitive advantages for its nearly 300 members by advancing the business and professional development of independent dealers, manufacturers, representatives and others involved in the decorative plumbing and hardware industry. DPHA employs a unique consensus-based approach to accomplish its mission that treats showrooms manufacturers/importers and manufacturer’s representatives as peers and partners. Education is a DPHA hallmark. The organization has published the industry’s only comprehensive education program for showroom staff and produced numerous guidelines for consumers to make better and well-informed purchasing decisions.
DPHA's well-deserved reputation for quality and ability to create value for its members have enabled the organization to become the nation’s largest association dedicated exclusively to advance the interests of the independent decorative plumbing and hardware channel. Since its creation in 2002, DPHA has continually produced many marketing, educational and infrastructure products to improve our members’ businesses. DPHA has been honored with an Industry Leadership Award from Kitchen & Bath Design News for providing a unified voice and direction for the DPH industry. The magazine also described DPHA in an article as “the essence of what trade associations are all about.”
