Formetco Celebrates 10 Years of Digital Manufacturing with Industry First Standard 10-Year Parts Warranty


In celebration of ten years in digital manufacturing, Formetco announces an industry first standard 10-year parts warranty on all FTX series digital products. After years of research and analyzing the service history of thousands of existing LED screens in operation, Formetco remains in the forefront, being the first to offer a standard 10-year parts warranty at no additional cost. Reflecting the impressive lifespan of Formetco’s FTX series LED digital billboards, the new 10-year parts warranty gives customers an added level of confidence. This new warranty is in addition to the standard 10-year brightness warranty that is already included with all FTX series boards.

“By combining Formetco’s 10-year brightness warranty with our 10-year parts warranty, we guarantee our product’s performance and provide our customers with a product that will cost substantially less to operate over a 10-year time period than other products available in the market today,” notes Jock Gibb, Vice President of Sales for Formetco.
