Recognizing a need for better performing digital out-of-home products, Info2go was launched in 2007 as a subsidiary of International LCD. The management’s previous success in electronics design and distribution at International LCD laid the framework for the launch of the digital out-of-home line. In 2009 Info2go entered into a strategic partnership with Dee Zee Manufacturing to draw on the extensive resources of Dee Zee in metal design, fabrication and product assembly. Dee Zee Manufacturing acquired Info2go in 2011 in order to further efforts to increase market penetration and expand Info2go’s offerings. Dee Zee Manufacturing has been one of the nations leading manufacturers since 1977. Dee Zee is renown for its truck accessory line sold to both after-market distributors and original equipment manufacturers including General Motors, Ford, Chrysler and Honda. With sales approaching $200 million, the privately held company is branching into the technology sector as part of its growth initiatives. Combining the electronics strength of Info2go with the manufacturing capabilities of Dee Zee allows the most extensive capabilities of any digital signage entity in the world.
