AGS and AGTA GTC form an alliance for global expansion

The American Gem Society Laboratories, LLC and the American Gen Trade Association Gemological Testing Center have entered into a strategic alliance to service their global expansion. The AGS Laboratories have opened their international distribution channels to the AGTA GTC, so clients can submit colored gemstones to the AGS Laboratories’ take-in windows in Antwerp, Dubai, India, and Israel.

“We’re very excited about this alliance,” said Peter Yantzer, executive director, AGS Laboratories. “It is a natural fit for us to work together to expand our markets globally.”

Douglas K. Hucker, executive director of AGTA, added, “This allows the AGTA to achieve its goals of expanding service internationally and to work with a partner with whom we can have complete confidence.”

Clients of AGS Laboratories’ take-in windows now have greater options. They may submit either colored gemstones or diamonds to their local AGS Laboratories’ representative and receive a diamond grading document from AGS Laboratories, or a colored gemstone report from the AGTA GTC. The AGS Laboratories take-in window representatives include GSI in India, Elmyr Services in Antwerp, the Dubai Metals and Commodity Center in Dubai, and Eli Dori in Ramat Gan.
