My First Experience of the Work Environment.

My name is Christopher and I have come to Mid West Displays to do my work experience.

I am looking to go to college and university to carry on with Art and Design, and try some new courses such as Photography, Interior Design and Architecture. At the moment, I chose German, Textiles, Art and Geography for my subject choices at secondary school.

Outside Mid West Displays

From this work experience week I was expecting a very stressful environment with people I had never met in my entire life. I came here on Monday feeling very nervous and came out at the end of the day feeling like a new person after experiencing the workplace environment for the first time. On the first day, I was introduced to Michelle and given a tour around the building to see all the different areas. I definitely started to feel much calmer as the tour continued with a warm welcome from everyone here.

Then I was introduced to Tim, and finally shown what I was going to be doing for the day. I started off using the laser cutter, which I was slightly nervous about, but Tim reassured me that I was going to be alright. I started to get the hang of things, and surprisingly had already finished the first batch in about an hour.

He then showed me to the show room which was very cool and unique, as it showed all the products from Mid West Displays, and it was a great thing to look at.

My first impressions’ of the people I was working around was that they all had the same sense of humour as me, which made me feel much better about being here. After I had done the acrylic engravings, Tim told me that I would be allowed to make something I could take home with me, which was great! I also helped Tim change the fittings on a few panels for a customer. I printed my own product on Corel, and went to BnQ and Screwfix to get supplies.

On Tuesday I started to get to know some of the people a bit more, which was a good thing because I’m not really that good at getting to know people. I learned how to outline a customer’s logo for engraving, which was a good experience. I helped use the lasercutter to cut some acrylic washers which was another order from a customer. We quality checked a few returned products from customers, and finally I took a technical drawing and designed it on the AutoCAD Software to produce the product.


The Design Team

On Wednesday, I worked with the Design Team for the day to design some stickers and my New York Box, which was a good laugh. I thought that all of the Design Team were hilarious and was happy to be here. I was shown how to use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and shown how the company design their products using Rhino Software.

Tim on the Laser Cutter

All in all, so far I am really enjoying my work experience and in the future, I am thinking about working here for my first job. For the future, the things I have learnt here are sure to help me with Uni and College, and maybe even for my first job.

Extended sign holders range at Wrights GPX

sign holders at Wrights GPXSigns and sign holders play an increasingly important role in modern retailing. Signs and signage is used to build brand, increase customer loyalty, support customer service and maximise spend.

Wrights GPX, a sister company to Mid West Displays, have worked with retailers since 1969 to develop a range of sign holders that support retailers communication strategy. They believe the days of handwritten signs blu-tacked onto wall and doors is over (although many retailers are still guilty of this) and have developed a range of sign holders that can be used across stores and other venues to ensure communications get noticed – and stay looking good.

Wrights GPX is a manufacturer. That means their product range is high quality – and that’s important when making signs that withstand the rough and tumble of everyday retail. And it also means they sell products at ‘direct from manufacturer’ prices – always important for cost-conscious retailers looking to make their display budgets go further.

From cheap as chips styrene and acrylic options, the company also offers high end solutions such as snap frames and illuminated frames. Another useful aspect of the range is the variety: sign holders can be hung, wall-mounted, Slat fixed or used freestanding; they can be placed on windows, doors, shelves, counters and hung from walls & ceilings to create an end-to-end customer journey.

In addition the West Bromwich-based manufacturer offers multi-buy discounts, a 14 day Money Back Guarantee, free delivery * and Next Working Day Delivery for complete peace of mind.

Jane stays in the frame at Mid West Displays

Jane Cutler joins the Mid West Displays teamJane Cutler is the latest addition to our team – but she obviously has a passion for display as she has spent the last decade in the sector!

In fact sales and customer service are in the blood. From recruitment to breweries, Jane has a successful career in building successful business relationships.

Jane previously worked for Fairfield Displays. Their sudden closure last year left Jane contemplating a move out of the sector she had come to know inside out for over 12 years. Fortunately, a move to Mid West Displays has allowed her to continue to make the most of her expertise.

Her role at Fairfield grew as she came to develop an insight into the display sector. Starting in telesales and moving into account management, from 2008 onwards she oversaw the development of the burgeoning market for LED light panels, working particularly with Estate Agents. From initial onsite meeting to briefing the design team to signing off at installation, Jane was involved in every step & this was something she was keen to continue at Mid West Displays.

Jane says the sudden closure of Fairfield Displays was a shock “We were told the business was closing one afternoon. I cleared my desk – and that was it. After a few weeks deciding what to do it seemed sensible to approach Mid West Displays and fortunately there was a role that I was interested in, and that used my decade-long sector experience.”

For Jane a welcome difference is Mid West Display’s manufacturing ability. “Not only is the quality of products guaranteed, it makes it easier to plan every project – there is no need to rely on 3rd party suppliers & that helps keep costs down too. And we can develop bespoke solutions to help customers make the most of their budget and display space.”

Jane is settling into her new role & contemplating a second decade in the industry!
