Bricks Fuel Shows They're More than a Gas Station with LED Upgrade

Posted by Molly Austin on Jan 24, 2020 3:29:08 PM
 

As stated on their website, "Bricks was founded by Brad Yonker and Nick Fischer in Alto, MI. Together, Brad and Nick wanted to create a brand of their own with the freedom to sell their favorite foods, and give customers a fresh, convenient, and friendly experience they wanted but were not getting from a typical “gas station”. Being in the industry for years they knew what the public perception was of a “convenience store” or “gas station” and wanted to change that.Taking a suggestion to combine their names, the “Bricks” brand was born, along with a commitment to improve the industry standard by implementing their brand through all areas of business."  

Outdoor LED Display Project Objectives 

Because Bricks opened about two years ago, were under new construction, and didn't have any signage beforehand, they really wanted to have a strong impact with community. They wanted to make sure to stand out and be noticed with their new LED upgrade. Brad wanted to show that his business was more than just a gas station. They wanted their new display to promote food, beer on special, customer appreciation, event promotion, content announcing when they were hiring staff, and much more. The displays are different everyday at Bricks, but one advertisement in particular they found was a huge success was the offer of free Slurpees. It was a really good way to get people in the door. 

Choosing the Right LED Displays.

Benefits of Outdoor LED Display Project 

After Electro-Matic Visual reviewed and evaluated the project, our experts engineered a solution that provided Bricks with LED displays that were more appealing to the eye, as well as more energy efficient and cost effective, too. To complete the job in full, the project required three Electro-Matic Visual double 10 mm high res, high level detail graphic displays. One is located on 8th street, one is on Port Sheldon, and one sign is on the corner.

The net manage meter allowed Bricks to send the same playlist on all three signs at the simultaneously, in turn, saving them time. Additionally, the highly detailed pictures and promotions on the LED for maximum impact and readability. 

Overall this project was a huge success. Electro-Matic would like to give a special thanks to Alcam Signs and Lighting, for their assistance in permitting, installation, and setup for Bricks Fuel. 

 

"I was so excited to work with Bricks. I actually live only 5 min away, so it was great to have a part in the new addition to the community."

- Alan Nicholson, Electro-Matic Visual.

Wayne County Parks use LED Displays to Communicate with Customers

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Aug 20, 2019 9:57:30 AM
 
Customer
Wayne County Parks is a division of Wayne County Public Services that is committed to enhancing the quality of life for families and citizens of the 43 communities of Wayne County. It hosts numerous events throughout the year.

Background
One event in particular includes the Lightfest, which takes place at Hines Park. The Lightfest is the Midwest's longest drive-through holiday light display, stretching approximately 4.5 miles, featuring more than 47 giant animated displays, and more than one million lights!
 


Objective

Outside of their website, print, and banners, Wayne County Parks had no way to display news or any other important park information. They wanted a better way to communicate the dates and times of not only their annual Lightfest event, but all of their events year-round.

Solution

The LED Sign chosen from Electro-Matic Visual was actually the same design as one of our trailer demos, but with an additional custom wrap. This allows Wayne County Lightfest the flexibility to put their sign where they want during peak hours, or move its location for different events. For further assistance throughout the year, Electro-Matic provided a permanent 16mm LED sign on the Hines Park premises as well. 

Benefits

The information on the upgraded LED display helped the line to move faster and more efficientlymaking the experience for everyone much more enjoyable. Considering this is a seasonal operation for Wayne County Parks, they are able to transfer the sign to other events in the spring, summer, and early fall.
