ECCO’s committment to member associations such as the American Public Gas Association (APGA), American Gas Asoociation (AGA), American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) and the Southern Gas Association (SGA) is not just a commitment on paper but a strategic alignment with industry leaders. These associations play a crucial role in setting standards, providing educational resources, and advocating for the natural gas industry at various governmental levels.

This association provides ECCO a broader understanding of industry challenges and solutions, facilitating effective advocacy on national energy policies and standards.

APGA: By teaming up with American Public Gas Association, ECCO gains access to a vast network of public gas professionals who are leading advocates and implementers of energy policies aimed at directly benefiting consumers. This partnership offers ECCO invaluable insights into market demands, fostering a deeper comprehension of solutions that improve public gas safety and efficiency.
