About the IGA
With the dissolution of many smaller associations, the International Glove Association (IGA) offers a solution to your industry and networking connections. Do you want to belong to an organization where you are only a number, or do you want to take control and influence the direction of the industry. What percentage of your business is related to hand and arm protection? IGA offers a variety of benefits such as market surveys, an educational library for sales staff and end users, certification of gloves, an annual conference, and newsletters.
The IGA starts by enhancing working relationships between all industry facets, and its membership — which is made up of suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, manufacturers’ representatives, importers, exporters and end users — is proof.
As the glove industry continues to evolve to include more advanced materials and an increase in overseas manufacturing, the IGA is well braced to support not only its membership, but also anyone who buys, distributes or uses industrial gloves. By creating an informal, intimate and friendly environment where members and affiliates can share knowledge, learn and network, the IGA is teaching the world about the future of gloves, today.
