BID Member Collaboration – TLW Global & Allsigns

Allsigns Tlw Collab Scaled 1

North Notts BID is delighted to hear of a collaborative project between BID members TLW Global and Allsigns. Read more here.

TLW Global has a new customer with 150 showrooms and was asked for a working point of sale (POS) to help sell lighting as an add-on to bathroom suites. The POS had to have an LED profile, LED dot-less tape, Lithium light, and plinth lights all working. This POS had to be robust enough to be carried around a showroom for the designers to show what lights are available.

TLW contacted a few companies about this, requesting a quote for an acrylic POS. The main challenge, as well as mounting the products, was the wiring had to be hidden from customers, so it had to be boxed in. A few people came back saying this could be done in acrylic but were struggling with meeting all the requirements. Allsigns were given the same brief, who TLW have worked with previously, who came back with an alternative solution for them to use.

Due to both businesses being located around the corner from each other, there was great ease in getting the work done to the required standard, with Allsigns providing excellent customer service and aid to get the project off the ground and running as quickly as possible.

Louise Needham, Business Development Manager at Allsigns International, commented ‘Allsigns have previously worked alongside TLW on several signage projects, however, their enquiry for free-standing display units to demonstrate some of their unique lighting products was something of a departure for us.

I worked with Kat Cavanagh, one of our studio designers, to look at both the design and the material testing necessary to select the media most suited to the project. This would involve having the durability and strength required, whilst having the aesthetic required for an attractive POS unit.

After a period of research, we produced a prototype in 3mm white gloss Alupanel (also known as Dibond). This strong, yet lightweight material could be cut to shape, folded and jointed.  Once we had made all the necessary design changes requested by TLW we received the final sign-off and went into full production.

We delivered all the units to TLW within the required timescale and to the quality they demanded.

It was a great pleasure to work alongside everyone involved in this project at TLW and I look forward to being able to work with them again in the future.’

The products have now been mounted and are ready for shipping to their customer.
