Digital display specialist UX Global celebrates 40 years in business

The company’s key to longevity is evolving with the latest innovations.

“Reaching the 40 year milestone is something we are very proud of as a business, especially during such turbulent times over the last few years. We are truly passionate about the power and benefits of digital media display solutions from a commercial, environmental, and social perspective, and are always looking for new and innovative ways to bring our clients’ ideas to life in a way that can rapidly evolve with them. With all the exciting developments happening in our industry, we’re confident that UX Global will still be going strong in another 40 years.”


UX Global client Ainsley Sykes of Currys, adds:

“UX Global is our digital display partner of choice because they are well-established in terms of experience, capability, installations and service, but also forward-thinking in their project design approach. They will ensure that any digital solution has a purpose and advantage for the customer, can make any idea come to life and they always challenge us to ‘build in’ interactive and digital display technology from the beginning of a project to save time and money while focusing on maximising its impact.
