GoVision LP, a full-service LED screen provider from Argyle, Texas, has acquired the assets of Custom Design and Fabrication, LLC, a company specializing in building mobile display trailers. The move marks the company’s fifth strategic acquisition since the beginning of 2014 and expands its portfolio of services with decades of expertise in the design and manufacturing of LED support elements, the press release said.
Founded in South Dakota in 2012, CDF manufactures mobile display trailers for professional and college sports teams, local sports associations, LED rental companies and national market activation firms. The company has also supplied custom components to several of the largest LED screen suppliers in the world for various projects.
Equipped with such high-tech machinery as CNC plasma tables, a CNC plasma pipe cutter and a CNC router table, GoVision said its newest unit can design and manufacture components and parts from virtually any material, including aluminum, steel, stainless steel, HDPE, polycarbonate, woods and laminates.
"Given the rapid growth, we're experiencing, particularly from events that require custom design and fabrication work, this asset acquisition made perfect sense for us," - said Chris Curtis, GoVision founder and CEO. "The event business is evolving rapidly, and it's becoming more and more essential to offer a full suite of services under one roof. GoVision is now arguably the most comprehensive one-stop-shop in our industry today."
One of the first projects performed by CDF for GoVision was building the TITAN mobile video unit, which is described as the largest mobile video display trailer in North America. Designed for NASL’s FC Edmonton, Alberta, the unit comprises Daktronics LED screen of 11.8m wide by 6.7m high that is mounted on a 16m trailer.
