Fascia Graphics®, the market leader for the production of membrane keypads and graphic overlays in the printed graphics industry has assisted manufacturer, AGD Systems Limited win a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2011, by supplying screens for its flagship AGD946 combined puffin nearside pedestrian signal.
Formed in 1992, AGD is an independent UK company dedicated to the design and manufacture of traffic detection and associated products. Fascia Graphics® has supplied AGD with labels for a number of years, but following a detailed market Request for Quotation (RFQ) in 2010, Fascia was selected to provide the optical screens for the AGD94x series of pedestrian signals.
The signal, which is widely installed in city and local authorities throughout the UK, was recognised for the Queen’s Award for its innovative styling and features. In order to meet the product requirements, Fascia took the following approach:
- The materials used for the front panel and the gasket assemblies were reviewed. As a result, the production samples utilised more cost effective raw materials.
- Solutions were also found to minimise the number of prints required and reduce the assembly time of the rear gaskets. The product improvements allowed Fascia Graphics® to continue producing product of the highest quality in the most economical manner.
Dafydd Hughes, Supply Assurance Manager, AGD Systems Limited, comments:
“In an increasingly competitive environment, we recognised that we wanted to work with a screen supplier that was willing to continuously improve its products and not stand still. Fascia fitted this mould by constantly challenging itself to improve its quality, cost and delivery.
It is not often that a business wins two awards in the innovation category back to back. This has been possible due to the continued support of suppliers such as Fascia Graphics®.”
Michael Hole, Engineering Manager, Fascia Graphics® concluded:
“We are delighted to be associated with an award winning company, and this really illustrates when manufacturing companies take a partnership approach to product development, what can be achieved.”
