Formetco has announced that it is doubling the size of its digital production facility, dubbed ‘Digital Campus’, in order to accommodate the company’s growing number of projects. Digital Campus is the facility where Formetco, one of North America’s leading outdoor advertising manufacturers and suppliers, assembles, tests and packages its LED video displays before shipping and installing.
Matt Xander, CEO of Formetco told us “Our continued investment in our staff and product development enabled us to achieve 30 percent growth in 2018, and we are projecting record-breaking growth for 2019. The current facility expansion will allow us to streamline our manufacturing and quality-control processes while providing the necessary square footage for our continued expansion.”
Formetco is currently operating out of a 40,000 square-foot digital production space, but by March 1, Digital Campus will increase to 88,000 square feet. The expansion will not require a move as the neighboring warehouse became available, allowing Formetco to easily remove walls and create the space required to manage the increasing workload.
Jeff Partlow, Formetco digital operations manager said “This expansion will allow our team to complete jobs at a faster pace. We originally had six build sites where each individual billboard had the space to be built. After the expansion of Digital Campus, we will have 11 build sites. With this space, we can almost double the number of billboards assembled and tested in a given week.”
Since 1968, Formetco has researched, designed and developed thousands of innovative out-of-home products including cutting-edge digital displays, billboard hardware and safety equipment. Headquartered in Atlanta and owned by the same family since its founding, Formetco is proud to be the only supplier and manufacturer to have served the outdoor advertising industry for the past 50 years.
