The mission of Global Registration Services, Inc. is simple: to create and offer proprietary services to the bedding & furniture industry (manufacturers, importers, distributors, retailers, state departments, officials & inspectors) that will reduce and avoid unnecessary costs, add and increase efficiencies, save time and help create a compliant marketplace.
Global was established in 2003 by Rocco Bruno, Jr., the owner of American Law Label, Inc., a printer of law labels since 1985, along with the support of the International Association of Bedding & Furniture Law Officials (IABFLO). Rocco has been an Associate Member of this organization since 1991. His family has been in the printing business since 1963.
We have partnership programs or have provided advice or assistance for Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ikea, Pier 1 Imports, Target, Home Decorators Collection, Costco and more. These affiliations were possible through decades of experience in the law label industry which makes Global Registration Services, Inc. the industry’s most reliable resource for law labels & registration.
With GRS leading the industry we can ensure that manufacturers' and importers' products are properly registered, retailers are assured that the products they buy and sell in their stores are compliant and will not be subject to fines and off-sales and state departments are confident that GRS documents completed on your behalf are submitted accurately with the proper funds.
A south side Chicago native, Rocco grew up in a diverse neighborhood from which strong friendships still exist. He took over management of family-owned American Law Label, Inc. straight out of college in 1988 and in 2003 saw a natural evolution to offer the industry's first registration service of its kind. Rocco relocated the businesses to Tucson, AZ in 2008. With nearly 30 years of experience and knowledge in the law label and compliance arena, established relationships with state officials and a strong team behind him, he is driven to offer valuable premier solutions to the industry. He also strongly believes in continually improving those solutions for the success of his business and the businesses of GRS clients. Rocco enjoys motorcycle riding, 70s music, fitness, and is an advocate of organic eating and healthy living.
A native Tucsonan (pronounced "two-sew-nan"), Deven is passionate about organizational growth, team development, and one-of-a-kind business opportunities. His background in industrial-organizational psychology, evaluation, and data management means he specializes in leveraging evidence to inform practice — all while keeping relationships front-of-mind! It’s through this person-centered approach that Deven inspires team collaboration and foster long-lasting client partnerships. When Deven isn’t in the office or using data to improve practice throughout the community, he’s scoping out local beer, burritos, and hiking spots (not necessarily in that order). He also serves on several community-based boards, including Kiernan’s Kindness and Arizona Evaluation Network.
