YESCO Electronics Rebranded
 

YESCO Electronics announces today that it will be rebranded as Prismview, A Samsung Electronics Company. The name change is the result of a directive intended to better align Prismview’s identity with its new parent company Samsung Electronics.

On March 3, 2015 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced its acquisition of Logan, Utah-based YESCO Electronics, LLC, a leading LED sign and display manufacturer with more than 2,000 installations across the U.S. and abroad and more than 20 years in the industry. The acquisition reinforces Samsung’s entry into the LED display market, extending the reach of the company’s pioneering technologies and expertise beyond large- format displays (LFDs) using LCD panels, where the company has been the worldwide market leader for six consecutive years.

Since the Samsung acquisition, Prismview has seen significant investments in the Logan, Utah plant in personnel, equipment, and other resources. Prismview has also seen its international sales increase by more than 75%.

According to John Williams, CEO of Prismview, “Samsung’s vast resources have added to our existing expertise, and have positioned Prismview to become the world leader in LED digital signage.” For more information: 866-989-3726 sales@prismview.com www.prismview.com

Prismview continues to impress the digital signage industry with landmark installations such as the recently commissioned center hung display at the AT&T Center, home of the San Antonio Spurs. Along with the center hung, Prismview built and installed more than sixty (60) other individual displays creating a powerful system that delivers the ultimate fan experience.

Prismview will continue to offer a full range of indoor and outdoor LED display products engineered for outstanding image quality and durability. Combined with Samsung’s LCD display line-up, consumers will benefit from the broadest catalog of visual display products in the world.

City Lights
 
Boulder-City
 

Boulder City, Nevada officials wanted to put a shine on the city’s welcome signs depicting Hoover Dam. Since there was zero chance of running power to the signs, the lighting experts at YESCO found the perfect solution−an updated solar lighting system. “The project far exceeded any expectations we had and YESCO knocked it out of the park,” said Gary Poindexter, Boulder City public works superintendent.

Boulder City originally constructed in the early 1930s to house 5,000 Hoover Dam project workers is located 30 miles from the bright lights of Las Vegas.
