Leading digital signage provider sees their 1000th outdoor screen roll off the production line of their UK based manufacturing plant with further engineering investment planned.
Amscreen, Europe’s leading wireless, outdoor screen solutions business has achieved a milestone with the 1000th screen coming off its production line at their purpose built, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility based in the UK.
In February 2015, Amscreen and Clear Channel UK signed a technology partnership that would see screens deployed up and down the UK’s high streets as part of Clear Channel UK’s Adshel Live upgrade.
The deal between these two global businesses has helped create more than 70 jobs within Amscreen. The new roles span a range of engineering and manufacturing functions and the business continues to invest in products and people as production meets digital signage demand. The purpose built facility also relies on local Bolton based businesses and talent for sourcing materials and services to produce a portfolio of indoor and outdoor signage in its 20,000 sq. ft. facility.
“The digital signage market continues to go from strength to strength and we’re so excited that we’ve been able to utilise the home grown talent in design, manufacturing and operations.
“This rapid development and deployment has been possible through both Amscreen and Clear Channel’s shared vision of bringing new, fit for purpose outdoor products to market for our clients. We also excited about our development pipeline with new product launches planned for early next year helping cement our position as one of the world’s leading suppliers and manufacturers outdoor sunlight visible screen”
