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.
We are wrapping up our trip to Orlando, FL for the 2011 Automation Technology South Expo (ATX South). The weather has been great, as you would expect central Florida to be in March.
Hope Industrial Systems enjoyed another successful International Poultry Expo last week. We’ve attended this show for several years now and we’re always pleased with the quality of our leads, as well as the opportunity to meet several of our customers face-to-face. It also helps that we are located only 25 miles from the Georgia World Congress Center.
We just got back from the International Poultry Expo (IPE) that went on right here in Atlanta. There were a lot of great booths at the show, but it was especially exciting to visit those that had our monitors displayed.
