Our story begins in 1998 when Alpharetta, GA-based American Panel Corporation (APC) emerged as the world’s #1 global OEM for LCD modules and displays used in military aircraft and land vehicles. With virtually 100% of the USA and 60% of the international market share for cockpit displays, APC started looking to bring its display technology to new markets.
Out of this, Manufacturing Resources International (MRI) was born. MRI designs, engineers, and fabricates BoldVu® LCD displays used in out of home advertising networks. Of all the display industry players, MRI maintains the largest install base of outdoor LCDs with deployments in over 50 cities around the globe. MRI also holds most of the core intellectual property around outdoor LCD technology.
In 2014, LG Electronics approached MRI to form a joint-venture organization, LG-MRI, to sell MRI’s BoldVu® displays under the LG brand. BoldVu® displays continually raise the bar for outdoor LCD performance and reign as the preferred display technology of leading OOH media companies.
