a ceiling-mounted projector for video viewing.
SEW Eurodrive is a world leader in drive technology and a pioneer in drivebased
automation. The company's U.S. headquarters is located in Lyman, SC

"We needed a new tradeshow display fast and were not willing to sacrifice
quality," said SEW's marketing representative, Rainer Blickle. "Apple Rock
quickly analyzed our situation and offered a solution that was both eye-catching
and financially grounded. The new display is something we are certainly proud
to call ours. Choosing Apple Rock as a partner has proven to be a great move."
For SEW, Apple Rock designed a custom display featuring visually captivating
edge-lit walls, interactive video wall and a 3-dimensional metal globe to
represent the company's global presence. The display was premiered at the
MINExpo International in Las Vegas to showcase their large mining motors to
the United States market. The display received very positive feedback on the
modern look and feel from both domestic and international clients.
