GMi Companies is a privately owned corporate entity made up of several individual companies. GMi Companies began operations in 1976 as Ghent Manufacturing, Inc. Since its’ founding the corporation has grown to be a leader in the manufacturing and marketing of visual communication products while also expanding into additional product categories through acquisitions. GMi Companies has two companies within its “Visual Communication Products Group” and another two companies in its “Furniture Products Group”.

These three individual companies all share the same core values that have consistently led the corporation over the decades.  We believe that we prosper by providing distinctive products and experiences that result in a feeling of “That’s exactly what I wanted!”

In April of 2011 Ghent Manufacturing, Inc. officially changed its corporate name to GMi Companies. The name change aligns the parent company with the multiple brands within the corporation.
