Display Confidence Merchandising and Point of Purchase programs play a vital role in the cross-selling and up-selling of customers. How the information is displayed is critical in keeping your customers informed and making them feel confident in your products. These concepts are the foundation of every merchandising plan and program we create. L&H Companies uses proven scientific data on how consumers behave in retail environments. Understanding this information ensures that the placement of your merchandising products is not just filling empty space, it’s delivering the results you need. For example, did you know:

· 40% of purchases are made at the point of sale.

· The first 5 to 15 feet is the least advantageous place to put important information.

· The direction people tend to go when they first enter your branch is a direct impact of most people being right handed. So, marketing materials should be displayed just slightly to the right

of where they will be standing. · Point of Sale materials located at the check-writing desk is not an impactful area for your marketing materials.

All of these elements, among others, influence the direction of your customers’ eyes and how they move throughout your offices. Based on scientific data, our merchandising solutions are different and will deliver the right message at the right time, resulting in an increase in your sales.


Merchandising Zones You can better your return on investment by leveraging the knowledge of human behavior in retail environments. L&H Companies understands that every zone has unique signage needs to be seen.

3D Modeling Capability Our software programs are used by our engineers to create robust architectural designs including options for MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) and structural engineering in construction 3D models. Below are examples of a recent exterior projects that L&H Companies did in the programs.


Project Management Making Your Project Successful. Our project management team’s mission and focus, every day, is on your project to ensure 100% success. Experienced team of project managers that collaborate with you to move from the drawing board to tangible product in one streamlined process. An understanding of the challenges decision makers face and the tight deadlines that come with projects. Well organized and focused on the details to complete your project successfully and on time. PM staff is required to conduct a weekly project review and recap internally. Project management leaders have completed the Penn State University Project Management Certificate Program, with all project managers to be finished with the certificate program by 2019. KeyedIn, One Drive, Sign Chart and Remote Desktop software programs are used by the PM giving the ability to link all the different aspects of a project together allowing for accurate tracking to drive project success. Project Manager has the capability to login to any project on-site and make immediate changes or share project details with customer.


The SCRUM Process An agile framework for completing projects using a team-based approach to project management. Recurrent cycles Small, high-functioning, collaborative teams Multiple methodologies Continuous evolution

Customer involvement Decision making from real-world results Processes encourage sustainable development Exceed the client’s expectations

Overview of SCRUM at L&H Companies: A product owner creates a prioritized wish list called a product backlog. Team consists of key individuals from various areas within L&H Companies such as Engineering, Project Management, Leadership, Fabrication, and Installation. During sprint planning, the L&H team pulls a small chunk from the top of that wish list, a sprint backlog, and decides how to implement those pieces. The L&H team has a certain amount of time — a sprint — to complete its work, but it meets each day to assess its progress (Daily Stand-Up). During the sprint, the Scrum Master (head Project Manager) keeps the team focused on its goal. At the end of the sprint, the product will be ready to ship and install. The sprint ends with a sprint review and retrospective. As the next sprint begins, the team chooses another portion of the product backlog and begins working again.


Cutting-Edge Facility Advanced 70,000 Sq. Ft. Fabrication Facility L&H Companies maintains a 70,000 square-foot manufacturing facility that combines state-of-the-art equipment with one of the most advanced printing systems in the United States. Staffed by certified fabricators with over 100 years of combined experience, the facility boasts a vast product manufacturing area that includes a pre-fabrication, fabrication, painting, welding, routing, vinyl, wiring and assembly, and printing departments. L&H Companies operates one of the largest forming machines on the East Coast capable of forming and molding the most intricate of shapes. Other machining specialties include precision water jet cutting of any shape or font in any material to easily fabricate unique, custom signage in a variety of styles including 3D cutout letters and ADA-compliant Braille signs. L&H Companies can also produce photo-polymer signs in multiple gauges on a clear base that allows for subsurface graphics and painting as well as the traditional surface paint method of finishing.


The L&H Advantage The Quality You Demand. The Performance Your Project Needs. L&H Companies gives our clients increased application possibilities and printing effects that provide more flexibility and customization in sign design. Our EFI VUTEk GS3250LX Pro Led Printer uses a revolutionary white ink technology to print in-line with a unique three-layer capability offering. This groundbreaking printer produces vibrant colors superior in hue when compared to washed-out colors from standard digital printers. It also means we can offer a larger array of colors and impeccable color accuracy at an affordable price. And with only two in the country, it’s an advantage our customer’s get when working with L&H Companies on their project. Some of the vast capabilities of this printer include:

· Increased application possibilities and printing effects

· More flexibility and customization in sign design

· White ink printing capabilities

· Flexible ink printing with 6” draw

· 3D layering process

· Precise color match technology


Custom Fabrication Making Your Ideas a Reality. L&H Companies offers expert sign fabrication based on 25 years of industry experience and research. No project is too multifaceted. Our skilled fabricators can create something as operational as it is unique. By applying our team’s skills using a wide range of materials, processes, newly introduced methods, and cutting-edge equipment, our fabrication department combines computer-driven accuracy with skilled craftsmanship and finishing techniques to create one-of-a kind signs. Our ability to cut, weld, paint and fabricate is unparalleled with 95% custom fabrication and only 5% extrusion used. If you can design it, we can develop a state-of-the-art 3D rendering – and then build it. When other sign companies say it can’t be done, challenge L&H Companies with your vision and watch it come to life. L&H Companies is the recognized industry leader in custom sign fabrication and installation.


Flow’s Mach 4 Series Waterjet Giving our clients increased application possibilities. When we invest in our shop, we want it to be with products that are highspeed so our customers can reap the benefits on their project. That’s why L&H Companies invested in the Flow Mach Waterjet because of it’s precise cutting accuracy at speeds up to 400 inches per minute. A faster waterjet stream uses less abrasive and excels at 3D cutting for unlimited shapes and fonts on material up to 4 inches. This machine allows L&H to easily fabricate unique, custom signage in a variety of styles including 3D cutout letters and ADA-compliant Braille signs. What does that mean for our clients? Increased possibilities that result in lower costs and quicker turnaround time.

L&H Companies is committed to sustainable business practices for the welfare of future generations. The Flow Mach Waterjet aligns with this commitment by recycling and reusing the abrasive and water to power the machine. Also, less heat is produced into the environment with the use of no laser.


Nationwide Installation L&H Companies provides expert installation services anywhere in the United States. Our team of experienced and licensed professionals will provide direction for installation on your signage throughout the project.

Advancement of Technology Innovative Solutions and Techniques:

Two Innovative Sign Solutions for ASU Cutting-Edge System for Tower Health In the Red Zone Atlanta Braves Iconic 25 ft. Rotating “A”


Two Innovative Sign Solutions for ASU Arizona State University wanted a seamless weld not exposing any assembly hardware for some of their ID signs. L&H Companies had to come up with an innovative way to join two surfaces at 45° right angles to create a virtually seamless square weld. We came up with a method to weld the aluminum channels together that allowed for the structure underneath to maintain its integrity and engineering stamp, while appearing on the outside as a seamless finish.

A second challenge was to fabricate two identical panels that would line up perfectly creating a seamless view on the 30 ft. pylon sign. Using our Flow Mach Waterjet, we cut the detailed ASU pitchfork toppers which not only created a precise identical cut on both panels but saved time for the client due to it’s excellence in speed and accuracy. The Waterjet also took their branding element, the pitchfork, to another innovative level by highlighting it and creating an architectural feature embedded into the sign versus etching it plainly.


Cutting-Edge System for Tower Health Tower Health contracted L&H Companies for the complete exterior/interior signage and wayfinding package at their main hospital and offsite locations. For the directional signage portion, L&H Companies fabricated a new flush mount panel system. This system uses a specific milling and cutting method, uniquely designed by L&H Companies Engineering Team, allowing for the top panel to be fastened with two almost invisibly small screws at the bottom which hold the panel in place. We use this innovative method to mount the panel flush to face without using any adhesives or permanent connection devices so all mounting fasteners are hidden. The ingenuity about this system is it’s easily changeable and allows for the entire front panel to be removed and updated without difficulty to be repurposed for later use. Another significant feature is that updates can be easily changed without error. A traditional slat directory over time can get the typography wrong when updated several years later. Our new system has consistent typography because the entire panel is reprinted, ensuring a clean constant look. This product is limitless in design and can be created in almost any size to be used on a wall or ceiling directional sign. Designers, architects, and clients will have the ability to originate a sign system that is truly innovative.


In the Red Zone: Maintaining the vibrant color

of the Atlanta Falcons brand across their interior signage

The Atlanta Falcons had a very robust red and detailed pattern they wanted to remain consistent across every interior sign for the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Screen printing the signs would’ve left room for error in both color and pattern consistency. Using our advanced printing system, the EFI VUTEk GS3250LX Pro Led Printer, we were able to offer impeccable accuracy in both the color and design. The color–white-color printing process guarantees no saturation of color and cuts the production time in half, versus the traditional screen printing process. EFI is the leader in the printing industry offering maximum unique and flexible inks that maintain color precision. L&H Companies invested in this state-of-the-art printer to offer these modern capabilities to our clients to reduce cost and time in a project while maintaining impeccable brand accuracy at the same time.


Atlanta Braves Iconic 25 ft. Rotating “A” L&H Companies commitment to develop this innovative sign started with designing a 25 ft. 360° rotating “A” by finding a supplier with a data ring that could rotate completely. Full scale engineering drawings and 3D renderings were developed during the process to ensure of no fabrication issues or interferences such as weight, ease of assembly, and sheet yielding. Steel and aluminum frames were fabricated piece by piece enduring rigorous testing for safety and longevity.


With over 70,000 LED’s to create the LED display board and a live video feed, the signature “A” is sure to shine bright for many years to come. Our experienced installation team used a 300 ton crane with 367 ft. main boom and 150 ft. jib to install the sign in pieces on top of the stadium placing the “A” in it’s final home.

Philadelphia, PA

Exterior Signage

When they did research for a placemaking and wayfinding project for the Philadelphia Zoo, Gecko Design Group staff found that the images of the zoo that people shared on social media contained photos of themselves with animals, but unlike other zoos, the images contained no zoo identification or branding. The goal of this project was to fix that. The monument was part of a large project to improve the Philadelphia Centennial District Transportation Center surrounding the zoo. A new parking garage, landscaping, street lights, sidewalks and wayfinding signage now welcomes visitors from outside the zoo. The monument was designed with a seating wall as a place where people could rest, or create their own photo memories.
