HistoryEdit

NanoLumens was launched in 2006 by then CEO Richard 'Rick' Cope.[2] NanoLumens now holds over 200 patents on the technology used in their displays.

The company raised more than $10 million from 2006-2009 from angel investors to fund their operations,[3] and primarily targets the digital out-of-home (DOOH) market, with sales in the U.S. & Canada, and expansion in Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and South America.[4]

NanoLumens relocated its headquarters at the beginning of 2012 to a new 32,000 square foot office center in the North Atlanta suburb of Peachtree Corners after being courted by the Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development Department and the Georgia Department of Economic Development to stay in the area.[5] The new facility houses the largest digital display showroom in the US. 2012 also marked the company's first full year of commercial production.
