We helped a large outdoor manufacturer of signs in CA. This company has around $50 million in revenue, over 200 employees, and 100 outside contractors helping with install design and testing.
R&D challenges they faced included:
- Materials research in compatibility and durability for a variety of harsh outdoor environments.
- Lighting trials with new LED lighting hardware and software. Many new products are on the market that need to be proven to work in the applications
- Manufacturing process improvements and tests with these new materials and products as this client is vertically integrated and does the manufacturing, design and build of these large billboards and signs in house.
