A Farmers Branch LED screen innovator is spending $4 million to expand its manufacturing facility in North Texas. It’s also planning to triple its workforce.
Ultravision International, a modular LED displays and lighting manufacturer with more than 39 patents, will use the multimillion dollar investment to open up additional manufacturing lines.
Its proprietary technology has made a big splash in the advertising industry with Ultravision displays installed across the globe from New York’s Times Square to Paris’ Châtelet-Les Halles Commuter Rail Station.
As more outdoor and out-of-home advertising companies look to make the switch from static billboards to dynamic LED digital displays, the demand for Ultravision’s tech has “skyrocketed,” according to the company.
Opening more manufacturing lines will amp its production capacity and enable operation around the clock.
“The incredible demand we’re experiencing across industries tells us buyers recognize the value of buying LED technology from the actual inventor and U.S. manufacturer.”
“We are proud to manufacture all of our products in the United States. The incredible demand we’re experiencing across industries tells us buyers recognize the value of buying LED technology from the actual inventor and U.S. manufacturer,” Ultravision founder Bill Hall said.
Ultravision, which Hall started in 2010, produces a LED screen that’s modular and can be mounted to a steel frame at a fraction of the cost, weight, and energy consumption of traditional panels.
When Dallas Innovates talked to the company last June, it had about 25 employees at its Farmers Branch facility. Now, that number is closer to 100.
By the end of this year, it expects to add more new employees in production, sales, marketing, administration, and management.
“Our customers require incredible speed to market and quick execution on production and delivery of our lighting solutions and modular LED display panels. Hiring all these terrific North Texas people and increasing our production capacity allows us to build and deliver our products to customers faster than the competition,” John Lee, vice president of global operations for Ultravision, said in a statement.
