General Information

We are collectively moving through an unforeseen, unprecedented, and uncertain time in history for our world. The existence of a bona fide resource and action plan for a pandemic is critical for your business. AIM/R knows that.

No doubt you have received more communications than you can count from local, state/province, federal, and world authorities on the topic of the coronavirus-COVID-19. Know that your association is working to provide available resources for rep agencies navigating how to run a business in a COVID-19 world. This page is just one of those resources. As always, please check with your local, state, and federal authorities on directives for your area and part of the world.

The good news? Plumbing and HVAC are considered to be essential life-sustaining industries per the U.S. Government! Sinks, toilets, pipes, hot water heaters, and what you manufacturer and/or sell are on the must-have lists in the U.S. and Canada. Learn more here.
