World Marketing Expands Capacity

June 2013 will mark the two year anniversary of AHW’s purchase of World Marketing (WM), a small manufacturing company with a thirty-year history serving airlines around the world providing precision placards for aircraft interiors and galley/cargo equipment.   Since joining AHW, World Marketing has nearly tripled its business, expanded its workforce and product capabilities including a full art department able to recreate any existing placard artwork for optimal visual impact, as well as outputting vinyl graphics for other signage.  Building on this success and growth, WM will purchase the Gerber EDGE FX (and Sprocket Cutter), a state-of-the-art thermal transfer printing system capable of printing, cutting and laminating adhesive backing for both Lexan and Mylar placards. This sophisticated equipment, which utilizes the most recent advancements in digital technology is FAA approved and recognized across the airline industry as one of the best systems for producing highly-customized and extremely durable graphics.  The EDGE FX system will dramatically expand WM’s production capabilities with improved quality and cost-effective efficiency.  “This is an exciting time for us” says Kelly Jenkins, World Marketing’s Sales Manager. “The EDGE FX is exactly what we need to meet the increased demand expected once we complete our ISO certification in September.”  With two years of steady growth, a new art department, the EDGE FX printing system and its imminent ISO certification, WM enters its third year as AHW’s manufacturing partner poised to fulfill the demands of continued rapid growth with excellence and precision.
