Flying the flag for UK design engineering

www.armagard.com

It’s been a busy 2018 at Armagard headquarters in Birmingham, with brand new product designs launched and projects happening worldwide. UK designed and manufactured products are in demand at home and abroad. As 2018 draws to a close, here’s a rundown of what we’ve been working on and a glimpse of what 2019 has in store.

Foreword

Fellow Birmingham and West Midlands-based business owners, we write this to inspire as much as we do to share what’s been going on behind the scenes here at Armagard. British products and services are in demand, and despite challenging times ahead, there’s never been a time when the worldwide media spotlight has focused so heavily on the UK.

This represents an opportunity to show the world what British businesses are made of. Here at Armagard, we’ve taken the opportunity to evaluate our business strategy and press ahead with new product launches and exciting projects around the world. Here’s what we’ve been up to…

New Product Launches   

As a leading designer, manufacturer and exporter of high-quality environmental enclosures used to protect industrial computer equipment and digital signage, we’re constantly innovating to meet the needs of our customers. 2018 marked the launch of several new products across our industrial computer and digital signage enclosure range, many of which are now in use around the world, including:

  • The Slimline Professional Outdoor LED Display Enclosure, which provides discrete, digital signage display protection in outdoor environments
  • The exclusive, Samsung OHF screen enclosure series, with designs that received approval from Samsung Korea
  • The PENC-500 industrial computer workstation, which provides greater protection for computers used in harsh industrial environments

We’ve celebrated success in the UK and across multiple international markets, such as the USA, France, Germany, Spain and Poland, reinforcing our belief that British made products and services are in demand.

New Projects

A number of projects have kept us busy in 2018. The standout project has to be a drive thru digital signage installation in Washington D.C., USA for a cannabis dispensary.

Let down by a previous digital signage hardware supplier, despite placing an order 8 months prior to the installation date, our customer faced missing a key deadline and we’re pressed to find an alternative solution at such short notice.

Thankfully, we were able to deliver on the custom project within 3 – 4 weeks, in time for the drive thru lane’s grand opening. The project even received local press coverage, with our products front and centre, representing UK design and manufacturing.

On the back of new product launches and projects at home and abroad, we wanted to share with you, not only our successes, but encouragement that UK design engineering is in demand on a global scale. In the interests of the Birmingham business community and the wider British community, this is certainly worth celebrating.
