IGMA launches new website

November 11, 2011  By Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance

Nov. 11, 2011 – The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance has unveiled its new website, offering enhanced information, online registration for its many technical and educational events as well as a better overall user experience. The association has been working on features for the new website for the past year, and the launch came in conjunction with the IGMA Summer Technical Conference in late August in Victoria, B.C. The enhanced site can be seen at

"We are very excited about our new website and features it brings to our members," said IGMA executive director, Margaret Webb. "Our primary goal with the new site was to be able to better organize the information we offer on the website, as well as increase the usability of our site for our members and to the rest of the industry."

One of the new features of the website is the Technical Corner, whcih offers the latest technical presentations from IGMA, including video presentations on flass handling safety, a full archive of the "SIGMA-grams" offered by the former Sealed Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association, a predecessor to IGMA that merged with the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association of Canada to form IGMA. The latest technical bulletins from IGMA are in the Technical Corner, as well as a new feature named Bill's Technical Corner that features technical articles and commentary from Bill Lignell, the IGMA technical consultant and a legend in the glass and glazing industry.

"Even though our technical corner is just launched with the new site, it is already a treasure trove of technical information free for the industry to download and use," said Webb. "In the next months, our goal is to continue to add top-notch technical information to the Technical Corner, as well as to provide even more great features on the website. Our Members Only section will launch at the end of the year, and the interactive tools on the site will add an even better experience for our members looking to make a difference in the industry."

IGMA also offers registration online for its upcoming IGMA Performance and Innovations Educational Conference, held Dec. 7 to 8 in Vancouver.
