MRI Announces Major Expansion of Production Facilities

Manufacturing Resources International (MRI) is in the final stages of acquiring a 137,000 square foot production facility in Alpharetta, GA. This expansion is based solely on the company’s tremendous growth in 2010 / 2011 relative to supplying Digital Displays for the expanding DOOH (Digital Out Of Home) marketplace along with the exponential growth forecasted for this industry sector in 2012 and beyond. The expansion into this new facility is set to take place in October/November 2011.

“As part of MRI’s commitment to the digital display industry… and our valued customers… we are pleased to be proactive in expanding, and improving, our engineering, operations, and testing facilities.” CEO and Founder, Bill Dunn states. “By increasing our physical operations by more than 500%, we are prepared for the explosive and continued growth of outdoor digital displays not only on a national but on a global basis.”

The new building will house MRI’s production facilities, while the existing 28,000 sq. ft. building will become the engineering and prototyping epicenter for the company. This expansion will allow for the accommodation of MRI’s ever-expanding engineering, production, support and executive personnel. The total combined production capacity for MRI will increase fivefold from 28,000 sq. ft. to 165,000 sq. ft. between the two facilities.

As a leader in the Outdoor, High-Bright LCD industry, MRI understands the need to expand and improve its current facilities in preparation for the rapid transition from Static advertising to Digital advertising within the OOH (Out Of Home) market in the coming years. MRI has installed over 5000 Digital Displays in North America and has begun its expansion to several international markets over the past year. MRI’s BoldVu® product line is bringing Digital LCD technology to outdoor venues with available features such as large format interactive touchscreens, 3G enabled communications, Full HD video content, and even Wi-Fi sponsored hotspots.
