About PIAP

. . . .

PIAP stands for Printing Industries Association of the Philippines. It is one of the biggest associations of graphic art practitioners totalling to 600 members.

On May 29, 1963, a group of printers led by the late Alberto D. Benipayo conceived of organizing an
association embracing all the loose printing groups in Manila.

Formally organized in June 1963, it adopted the name Printing Industries of Manila with all the members well-established in then Greater Manila.

Realizing the board spectrum of the printing industry, it came to the attention of the association that not only printers but also those engaged in the printing equipment, supplies, paper and other service shops should also be part of the organization.


On May 16, 1966, the Association amended its articles of incorporation so as to change its appellation to Printing Industries Association of the Philippines Inc. (PIAP)


At the same time, the composition originally of nine directors was increased to fifteen.
Memberships, together with the influence of the Association’s voice grew steadily.
Now housed in its own new office condominium, it boasts of its proximity to the business center of Makati City.
