As December comes to a close, we want to take some time to reflect on another great year at Hope Industrial Systems. Our company has experienced growth in a number of ways this year.
Hope Industrial Systems is pleased to introduce our newly expanded production facilities. Our loyal customers have made it possible – and necessary – for us to once again increase our available production space.
Hope Industrial Displays are built to handle abuse of many forms. Our displays are used in a wide variety of extremely tough environments where they see everything from daily steam cleanings to chemical exposure to the occasional run-in with a forklift.
Recently Hope Industrial sent several of our key products – our Panel Mount Monitors, Universal Mount Monitors, monitor-mounted KVM products, keyboards, and cover plates – through third-party IP66 environmental certification testing, and all of the products completed and passed the testing. Although our products had previously been tested and confirmed as NEMA 4X certified in years past, which also implied IP66 ratings were met, we wanted to ensure they fully meet the IP66 rating by using Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), a trusted independent product safety certification organization, for the testing.
After 12 years in the industrial monitor and touch screen business – and over 40,000 monitors shipped worldwide – Hope Industrial Systems is happy to announce our new logistics center in the United Kingdom to better support the UK and Europe.
In this final week of December, like most people we at Hope Industrial have been reflecting on the past year. 2011 has been a wonderful year for us with solid growth, many new products released, and several milestones passed. We are extremely thankful for all of our new customers, and also indebted to the many companies who have standardized on our products over the years.
As of March 24th, Hope Industrial Systems is represented on all 7 continents! We sold our touchscreens to our first Antarctica-based customer on Thursday.
