Control Instruments Corporation has become a member of the Gravure Association of America (GAA).
The Gravure Association of the Americas was established to provide a forum to facilitate collaborative partnerships among all Gravure professionals; done through interactive communication, training, education and promotion of the Gravure printing process. The association is an industry-led, customer driven organization. It values and prioritizes sustainability, focuses on common interests to the industry, and utilizes global partnerships in a non-endorsement environment.
The Gravure Association of the Americas, Inc. is a trade association. It was formed in January 2013 as the result of the merger between the Packaging and Label Gravure Association Global (PLGA Global) and the Gravure Asociation of America (GAA). The two organizations consolidated their resources with the intent to create a more effective and responsive association. PLGA Global was established in 1989, while GAA was formed in 1987 as a result of the merger between the Gravure Technical Association (GTA) and the Gravure Research Institute (GRI). Both GTA and GRI had been in existence since 1947.
