Top grocery retailers know they cannot afford to stand still today and hope to retain their leading position tomorrow. The companies that supply them with their all-important display systems are subject to the same rule, which is why Albion Design & Fabrication, one of Europe’s leading names in retail display, always puts innovation firmly at the forefront of its many and varied operations.
Compelling proof of this approach is how the company has solved an up-to-the-minute display problem with its CSR quick-change, large format graphics boards, developed in response to a request from a major supermarket customer.
CSR boards are about the need to reflect fast-changing promotions in a dynamic retail environment. Albion’s revolutionary solution utilises its ‘Easi Fix’ extrusion technology, in which a panel or other gripping edge is held firmly in place by an angled rubber blade fixed within the extrusion. Specially shaped pockets manufactured from 1mm PVC retain the graphics and are inserted into the Easi-Fix extrusion, which is mounted on a backboard.
Easi Fix technology enables any member of staff to replace graphics in seconds, without tools or special training. Boards can be configured according to customers’ requirements and there is even a literature holder option, which simply replaces one or more of the graphics pockets – ideal for recipe cards and similar promotions. Virtually frameless when viewed from the front, CSR boards also offer the advantages of lightness and minimal depth.
Albion has been the UK’s foremost manufacturer of cable and rod display systems and sign fixings for more than 20 years, although it has also become widely known for other display technologies – especially within the retail sector. For many Albion customers, the company is synonymous with a highly developed ability to custom design and manufacture in metal, timber and acrylic, in order to turn customers’ individual display visions into reality.
Whether it’s a one-off requirement, or national roll-out, the considerable expertise within Albion’s production centre in Sandy, Bedfordshire, is always at the customer’s service.
