The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) is a North American trade association created as a result of the merger between the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association of Canada (IGMAC) and the Sealed Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association (SIGMA). IGMA represents the interests of the insulating glass industry in North America and also in the international marketplace.

IGMA draws on the positive synergies of the former associations and has evolved as the consummate technical authority on all aspects of insulating glass manufacturing. A complete and thorough review of both group’s activities and structures was undertaken not only prior to the merger but is an on-going process to ensure that IGMA remains relevant and provides real value-added service to our members.

IGMA is committed to continuously improving our products and services in order that we may meet or exceed the expectations of our members. To assist the Board of Directors and our Technical Committee, IGMA has implemented a Quality Management System and we are ISO 9000:2000 certified.

IGMA operates in two strategic directions; development of technical publications and expertise including leading edge research, education on best practices and providing product certification to the North American insulating glass industry.

New manufacturer and supplier members receive a complimentary copy of the IGMA Technical Binder which includes all current IGMA technical bulletins, reports and technical manuals as well as the complimentary update and new publication service. Associate members must purchase the IGMA Technical Binder but are provided with the complimentary new publication and publication update service.

All members of IGMA receive all the benefits that membership in the Alliance offers, including but not limited to:

  • An exclusive listing in the Membership Directory;
  • Newsletters;
  • Technical Bulletins;
  • Complimentary technical publications such as the Insulating Glass Manufacturing Quality Procedure manual and the Preventing Insulating Glass Failures technical manual;
  • Invitation to member's meetings including the Annual General Meeting;
  • Networking with industry peers;
  • Access to the latest research;
  • Access to the IGMA Library;

The Annual Conference is an excellent forum for manufacturers to network with their fellow manufacturers, suppliers and associates. Additionally, this conference offers timely and relevant Technical Presentations delivered by experts in their field, which are of interest to our membership.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us for clarification on any of IGMA’s current activities.

IGMA Changes Dates for IG Fabricator Workshop
The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) rescheduled its IG Fabricator Workshop event, which will now take place May 3-5 in Plano, Texas, at the Intertek (ATI) Testing Facilities. "There are two major trends affecting the fenestration industry today," says Margaret Webb, IGMA's executive director. "The first trend is major turnover in plant personnel as baby boomers retire, taking with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in the fabrication of insulating glass just when that expertise is needed the most. Secondly, this is going on at a time when architects and engineers are upping the game on building envelope design with unusual aesthetics, improved thermal performance. This workshop is taught by industry experts who know their stuff and are willing to share their expertise and knowledge with Gen X, Gen Y and Millennials, ensuring that this expertise gets passed on."

PCRs, Durability Testing Among Discussions at IGMA
The members of the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) were hard at work last week, hashing out technical matters and pushing forward with educational and certification efforts. The Alliance also covered emerging technologies and innovations, which rounded out the conference at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells in Indian Wells, Calif. The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) task group, part of the Emerging Technology and Innovation Committee, which met last Thursday, recently developed a business-to-business Product Category Rule (PCR). This was published on the Institute for Environmental Research and Education (IERE) website last September. The possibility of a business-to-consumer version for residential is being explored.

The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) held a technical services committee meeting Wednesday during its winter conference in Indian Wells, Calif. The meeting was held in conjunction with the Glass Association of North America's (GANA) insulating division. IGMA and GANA have formed a joint committee to address load resistance and dead load support for insulating glass units with unsupported edge conditions, something committee member Tracy Rogers said will be a "long process."
