Aberdeen, North Carolina-based Meridian, a manufacturer of kiosks and digital signage solutions, announces improvements to its global corporate headquarters, a 13-acre facility at which it designs, engineers, fabricates, assembles, deploys and supports all of its products.
In order to keep up with growth and demand in the self-service industry, and to improve throughput, Meridian says its latest facility improvements consisted of an investment of more $1 million in new fabrication equipment. Included in that investment was the installation of an upgraded Trumpf fiber laser on the manufacturing floor.
“As a player in the ever-growing and transforming self-service technology industry, we strive for constant improvement-from our products to our people, and our processes,” says Meridian’s CEO, Chris Gilder. “We’re excited to add the new fiber laser to our tooling lineup. The upgraded technology will allow us to more effectively and efficiently scale to meet the demands of the larger opportunities and projects we’re seeing come through.”
In addition to facility improvements, Meridian continues to grow its team. This summer the company welcomed project manager Denise Bellenger to its operations leadership team. In her new role, Bellenger works side-by-side with the sales, design, fabrication, and assembly teams to ensure that processes and projects are carried out effectively from beginning to end.
The company says it is also in the market for an experienced sales executive that will help it generate and grow new business in the self-service market.
