Magiboards Opens Factory in USA
Magiboards announced the incorporation of Magiboards Inc. in the USA. The company is a joint venture between DDS Inc and Magiboards Ltd. DDS is an established manufacturer of Custom Printed Whiteboards in the US, focusing on the US hospital sector. The company is based in Broomall, Pennsylvania and services the whole of North and Central America. The longstanding manufacturing experience of Magiboards UK, together with its wider product range and well developed eCommerce website, allows Magiboards USA to expand its reach to the Lean and general Office Products market. The US manufacturing base also allows Magiboards to better serve multinational clients who wish to implement uniform Visual Management Solutions in their Lean processes worldwide, without the long lead times, inventory and logistics complications involved in sending finished products from the UK.
The US website magiboardsusa.com went live on January 29, 2020 and received its 1st online orders the very same day.
Magiboards USA CEO, Adam Creed, is “excited about the new opportunity to build on the success of both DDS and Magiboards UK in the USA. The US market, while different in some aspects, has many similarities to the UK market and benefits from scale. The new, high quality products of Magiboards will be very well received in the US.”
This sentiment is shared by Erwin van der Stap, MD of Magiboards Ltd, who sees “the US market as a huge opportunity for both companies. Some exceptions apart, we have so far had to turn down some US enquiries, mainly for logistical reasons. We started working with DDS as a distributor for Magiboards in 2018 and it was quickly concluded that, in order to properly develop the market, we would have to manufacture locally. DDS has that capability and we have the range and the marketing tools. This is a logical marriage for us both.”

I just unpacked our custom whiteboard and it turned out great! The plan is to order another one that identical except reads ‘502’ and another one that will be about twice as long (about 14 Pallets) But I just wanted to say thank you – it’s been a pleasure and the whiteboard turned out fantastic!Alex H
I have found dealing with Magiboards a very pleasant experience. It all went very smoothly from quoting, digital proofing through to receiving the boards at our sites.
The boards are of good quality and come with a 10 year guarantee, which is a bonus as they will get used a lot. The printing is very clear and being magnetic they are easy to keep clean.Orhan Zubcevic
We have been using these printed boards for over two years now and they are top quality, perform well and still look new, that is why we came back to Magiboards when we had a requirement for more. I would definitely recommend them.Mark Green
