Pratt Display’s design studios are staffed with structural and graphic specialists with an average of 15 years experience in the POP industry. Each studio offers a full range of services – from concept to in-store execution.
Located regionally, the studios are equipped with Kongsberg XL-24 cutting tables capable of generating production-quality samples for fit and feasibility validation, as well as large format inkjet printers for high-quality mock-ups.
Our design teams are well-versed in multiple software applications (Artios CAD, CAPE, TOPS, Illustrator, PhotoShop, Strata 3D, SolidWorks and Autodesk 3DS MAX) used to output renderings, specifications, die-lines, pallet patterns and other design-specific files and documentation.
In addition to design, each display is ship tested in our ISTA-certified lab to ensure it is structurally sound and able to withstand the rigors of transport, distribution centers and in-store environments.
ISTA Certified Lab
To ensure stability during transport through the distribution center to in-store, we ship-test every display at our on-site ISTA certified lab. After testing, a comprehensive, detailed report is provided to the customer.
In addition to ship testing, the lab also performs a myriad of other services:
- Strength and Surface Analysis
- Cyclic Humidity Studies
- UN-DOT-Hazmat Shipping Container Certification
- ISTA Shipping Container Certification
- UPS & Fed-Ex Testing
- Trouble-shooting support
- Combination board/box testing
- Paper testing
Pratt Display’s account and project management teams are located in regional offices strategically placed near our customers. The geographic proximity encourages face-to-face meetings, establishes strong working relationships and prevents communication delays.
Our account and project management teams coordinate business activity, including local interface with category contacts; engineering; creative services; design; and planning between the customer and internal project managers to ensure all assignments remain on their critical path. They also act as a liaison between the customer and our teams to clarify questions, secure necessary approvals and maintain production status for each project. This approach bridges the gap between marketing concepts and structurally stable retail vehicles.
This collaborative approach streamlines the project management process flow, drives cost savings and increases speed-to-market.
Pratt Display’s high-graphic manufacturing facilities have the capacity to produce over 650 million square feet a year, with more than 30% open capacity, and are located in geographic proximity to East Coast, Midwest and West Coast delivery points.
The plants were designed for high-speed quick set-up and short-run manufacturing. They feature cutting edge graphics capabilities including two, 7-Color Martin DRO 1628 NT HBL rotary die cutters, four additional high-speed multicolor presses and numerous Automatan Litho Laminators, including a new generation electrostatic Model EM labeler. The group also offers extensive flat-bed die cutting capacity with both large and small format Bobst Autoplaten Die Cutters. In addition, the division operates multiple large format Specialty Folder-Gluers for finishing work.
Pratt Display has always been mindful of its customers’ concerns about the need for an uninterrupted product supply, and all equipment purchases are evaluated for volume growth and as redundant capacity for existing machinery. In the event of a breakdown of any piece of equipment, every item we produce can be run on an identical or similar piece of existing equipment within the division.
As a value-add for our customers, we have an in-house business process team available to consult and make best practice process improvement recommendations. Best practice benchmarking is used to measure an organization’s performance in comparison to others in the same industry.
Our team works closely with the customer to understand the intricacies of their current process and, in a collaborative approach, to identify areas for improvement. Process improvement usually targets three areas: Quality, time and costs.
