Dallas–The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) announced the launch of a new Internet-based source directory designed to make it easier and more convenient for AGTA members to find products and services.
The new AGTA Online Source Directory resource will replace the existing Electronic Source Directory that has been in use for several years. It can be found at SourceDirectory.AGTA.org.
“This new Online Source Directory is more dynamic, updated more often and provides thorough contact and product information right at your fingertips,” AGTA Chief Executive Officer Douglas Hucker said in a release. “This is a great tool for buyers who prefer to work with suppliers they can trust, AGTA members.”
The directory includes contact information for colored gemstone dealers, cultured pearl suppliers, designers, manufacturers, estate jewelry dealers, tool and equipment suppliers, appraisers, lapidaries and many other industry-related service providers. All companies listed in the directory are members of AGTA, which means they are dedicated to upholding AGTA’s strict code of ethical business practices.
AGYA suggests that those who currently have the AGTA Electronic Source Director installed on their computers uninstall the program as it will no longer be updated with current member information.
