GDS sets up “Generation III” manufacturing sites for “Generation III” Digital Out Of Home (DOOH)
GDS has just finalized an impressive improvement of its global manufacturing resources and capabilities to be ready for “Generation III” digital signage products and technologies (new 70”/72” display sizes, enhanced G-Bond® process, new Midas “Gen III” technology).
Increasing worldwide orders for high performance displays, new products and technologies to be released soon, combined with the demand for a competitive offer in terms of price and quality, puts GDS in a good position to understand specific needs of DOOH players and align its structure and capabilities accordingly.
In fact, it is well known that expanding facilities often leads to higher overheads finally paid by the customers. That’s why GDS has worked hard to improve site facilities and efficiency to guarantee lean operations globally rather than simply expand overall dimensions (currently 270,000 square feet – 25000 sqm).
Coordinated by headquarters, GDS relocated some R&D and technical key resources to give local support to growing national business. With on-going orders in Europe, Australia and US, GDS decided to improve on-site support to give dedicated assistance to its clients.
In terms of manufacturing, GDS is increasingly investing in the technical equipment and the quality of all facilities (China, Romania, Italy and USA), to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership of its products to guarantee high standards and performances.
The company has also implemented the proprietary bonding process in all sites and finalized the set up of the same process in its US facility, to serve and support the American market. All sites can now manufacture and apply advanced optical enhancements to displays up to 82”. In fact, G-Bond® (GDS bonding), is one of the key technologies we have developed since the beginning because of the benefits given to thermal management and to the image quality of the display, some of the most important factors for the advertising market. This is proven by the success of the worldwide installed D6® model for indoor advertising. The proprietary high brightness LED backlight has been integrated in new Sirius outdoor LCD displays that can reach up to 4000 cd/sqm and have an extremely high image quality in direct sunlight.
Thanks to its commitment to global quality systems and ISO certifications, you can be confident that all products manufactured at any GDS sites throughout the world meet the same high quality standards.
