Dallas—Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Co. recently opened a high-tech engineering and fabrication center to support its fast-growing videoboard and digital signage business in Coppell, Texas.
Located at South Royal Lane, the 135,000-square-foot digital solutions center consolidates the company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and computer-aided design as well as software services teams in one location with the flexibility to grow as needed.
“This massive space gives Panasonic the ability to custom manufacture very large, spectacular electronic billboards for large stadia, arenas or other corporate customers,” Garry Waldrum, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions’ senior vice president of construction services, said in prepared remarks. “Panasonic can design, engineer, fabricate, and oversee the installation all in-house, raising the already high bar on our quality products and workmanship.”
The Coppell facility is strategically located in close proximity to major customers in the Dallas area, allowing for service or routine maintenance to be completed with greater efficiency. One of the center’s first projects is the NBA’s first-ever 4K ultra HD center-hung videoboard for the Sacramento Kings that will debut at Golden 1 Center, scheduled to open this October in Sacramento. Totaling more than 6,100 square feet, the center-hung videoboard will feature one of the largest screens in the league.
