In March of the same year, the association's offices were moved to New York City. By 1914, the association had 77 U.S. members and 5 Canadian members, and in 1948, the association changed its name to include compressed gas manufacturers as well as manufacturers of cylinders, pressure reducing valves, valves and other equipment for the industry.

Since 1914, the CGA has been dedicated to developing industry standards, pursuing common management protocols, and focusing on technical and safety matters. The association's chapters and technical committees conduct safety seminars and video planning from time to time in both networked and non-networked modes. In addition to this, the association has close ties with government organizations such as the DOT, FDA and DHS, all of which recognize the CGA standard and implement it throughout the Commonwealth.
