NanoLumens®, the pioneering company that last year introduced the world to large format flexible digital display technology, today announced plans to relocate its world headquarters to a new 32,000 square foot office center in Norcross, Georgia, the same city it has called home since its founding in 2006.
According to NanoLumens President & CEO Rick Cope, the company will move from its current 14,000 square foot headquarters to its new headquarters on December 1, 2011. “Our company has more than doubled in size over the last two years and we expect 2012, our first full year of commercial production, to create an even faster rate of growth,” Cope explained today. “This new headquarters will enable us to comfortably grow and meet our customer demands. It will allow us to consolidate all administrative, sales, operations, research, design, and assembly under one roof right here in the city we have always called home. What’s more, the new headquarters will house the largest digital display showroom in the country.”
The new NanoLumens headquarters will be located at 4900 Avalon Ridge Parkway, Norcross, Georgia 30071. The general phone number will remain 678.421.9694.
Underscoring its rapid rate of growth, NanoLumens today announced two key executive appointments. Karen Robinson, a senior technology and out-of-home media executive with more than 30 years of experience, now joins NanoLumens as Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, effective immediately, reporting directly to NanoLumens President Rick Cope. Ms. Robinson’s experience is strategic and solid and includes CEO level positions at Atlanta Technology Partners, Prime Point Media and Enrev Corporation, as well as senior sales management positions at Electronic Power Technology, AMNEX and AT&T.
“Karen has the exact skill set and experience that we need to drive sales in all of our target markets,” Cope emphasized. “As we begin the next chapter of the NanoLumens story, Karen will play a pivotal role in developing sustained sales in all of our targeted vertical markets.”
Reporting directly to Karen Robinson is Dana Michaelis, who now joins the company as Vice President and General Manager of Advertising Networks. In this new position, Michaelis will be responsible for developing and implementing strategic out-of-home place based advertising revenue sharing programs with content owners, networks, convention centers, stadiums and arenas. Mr. Michaelis comes to NanoLumens from Brite Media Group, where he served as Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing. Prior to this he held senior sales management positions at Prime Point Media, Pathfire and The Weather Channel.
“Having worked closely with Dana at Prime Point Media, I appreciate his considerable talents in building large scale advertising networks, which is a strategic priority for this company,” Robinson emphasized. “Dana will be very effective in presenting our breakthrough LED display technology to owners of convention centers, stadiums and other facilities where place based advertising vehicles are deployed.”
First introduced in 2010, NanoFlex™ digital displays remain the only solution of their kind. They conform to fit any surface, are thin, lightweight, and energy efficient, and can be mounted as easily as a work of art. The revolutionary NanoFlex display shattered the traditional usage limitations of large format digital displays. NanoLumens is the only company in the world able to reliably manufacture ultra-thin and lightweight, easy-to-install and maintain, seamless 6mm pixel pitch flexible LED displays in virtually any shape or size to meet each customer’s unique requirements.
In addition to being ultra-lightweight and energy efficient, NanoLumens displays feature a seamless, edge-to-edge picture quality (up to a brightness of 5,000 nits) that can be viewed from any angle or any distance without color shift or picture drop-off. Designed and engineered to be energy efficient, NanoLumens displays consume significantly less energy per-square foot than conventional digital displays. Further underscoring their commitment to eco-friendly technology, the NanoLumens displays are composed of up to 50% reclaimed materials, and are completely recyclable. What’s more, some new NanoLumens displays can be serviced from the front, making maintenance easier than ever before possible.
Designed and assembled entirely in the United States, NanoLumens displays are now available in both flexible and non-flexible frames in four product lines: NanoFlex™ and NanoWrap™ flexible displays; NanoSlim™ non-flexible rectangular displays; and NanoShape™ non-flexible round, square, and triangular displays.
NanoLumens’ technology received the 2011 Breakthrough Technology of the Year Award at the American Technology Awards. The company’s technology has also been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as a 2011 future-proof tech trend and was cited by The Wall Street Journal in its 2010 Technology Innovations Awards.
Headquartered in Norcross, Georgia, NanoLumens, Inc. (www.nanolumens.com) is a privately held corporation engaged in the research, product development and component design for unique flexible displays that address a yawning technology gap in the $14 billion digital display industry. Since its founding in 2006, NanoLumens has built a portfolio of more than 20 international families of issued and filed patents on its flexible display technology that effectively address the commercial market void between relatively small flat-panel displays and huge, limited application LED boards. NanoLumens technology is not constrained by standard sizes and shapes, or by the size, noise and cost issues associated with commercial LED products.
