In early 2020, we adapted quickly at the beginning of the pandemic. Within weeks we had created a safe working environment and were busy making protective till screens for our retail clients. During the first lockdown, we installed over 120 screens and 2 video walls in LFC’s training centre.
PPL relocated to a purpose-built HQ and printing/manufacturing facility in a business park in Speke, Liverpool. Enabling us to invest in additional printing technology to better serve our clients.
PPL Screens achieved a significant milestone by winning its first major commission for an LED Video Wall installation. Designing & installing 17 LED Video Walls at The Open Championship. These screens are now part of the supporter on course experience.
PPL Screens was launched to complement our existing signage business. We trained part of the workforce and recruited additional staff. Within six months, we installed our first LED Wall. Today, PPL Screens are an integral part of the business.

Programme Publications Limited and Creative Services (Liverpool) Limited merge creating a one-stop shop for design and print publications
