Triples Workforce to Meet Demand for LED Displays and Lighting
Ultravision International, a leading innovator, manufacturer and distributor of indoor and outdoor led display and LED lighting, has deepened its Made in America commitment by investing $4 million to open new manufacturing lines in Dallas, a move that will significantly expand its production capacity and triple the company’s North Texas workforce.
Ultravision, the brainchild of long-time Dallas entrepreneur William Hall, holds 39 patents for LED lighting and LED modular display panel technologies, making it an industry leader for LED products.
“Ultravision fundamentally changed the LED industry by inventing light-weight, modular display panels that eliminate the need for cabinet displays, which are difficult to install and costly to maintain,” said William Hall, CEO and co-founder of Ultravision International. “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.”
As outdoor and out-of-home advertising companies look to accelerate the change from static billboards to dynamic LED digital displays, demand for Ultravision products has skyrocketed, resulting in the need to significantly expand its manufacturing capabilities in Dallas.
The company’s new production lines can operate around the clock to keep pace with demand, and will be used to produce Ultravision’s billboard lighting assemblies and the modular LED display panels. However, all lines can be quickly retooled to manufacture the same product in the event a customer makes a large enough order to need full production capacity.
To staff the accelerated manufacturing plant, Ultravision has more than tripled its workforce by adding new production employees, with dozens more sales, marketing, administrative and management personnel expected to join the company in 2018.
