Continuing the annual tradition of making a calendar for the new year, GMN’s 2020 calendar is unique in several ways. To get inspiration for the new calendar, the team at GMN’s Monroe, NC division first looked at metal decoration trend samples that they had prepared for customers. Combining the GMN logo and colors along with elements from these trending designs, we were able to create a truly modern and exciting calendar for 2020 that demonstrates some of GMN’s unique capabilities.
When Stryker created their Lifepak defibrillator, they knew how important it was for it to remain functional no matter the environment in which it was used. The device is used in hospitals, ambulances and everywhere in between where it might be subjected to tough conditions and repeated impact.

When developing a new product, the cover for a display is just as critical as the display itself. The actual display component typically does not arrive with any kind of protection, leaving it susceptible to environmental factors and damage from continued use. Depending on product requirements, it is often necessary to add a glass cover to protect the display from impact or scratches while still maintaining optical quality. However, not all glass is created equal.
