A little history...

Mandex Ltd was a UK owned company owned by the Derber family.  In 1979 Alan Derber immigrated to California and founded Mandex Motion Displays in North Hollywood CA.


Introduced one of the first 3" & 6" character extendable led message signs to the USA called " Newscanner"


Designed & built one of the first window superbright 3" character led message signs called "Superscan"
LEDSigns have not always been a million dollar industry !
Alan Derber explains  "in  the early days,  when we first  introduced these LED signs,  it was difficult,  it took years of demonstating, educating  and showing the display before they became  a sought after  product.  Our small 3" character  40" long indoor displays sold at approx $2,500 and was only available in red." 

---Early 90's ---

After joining the International Association of Exhibit Mangers (IAEM) & exhibiting at hundreds of shows nationwide to introduce our products and services to thousand of attendees,
we seamlessly evolved into a LED RENTAL HOUSE for major trade shows & special events.  We placed displays in the lobbies and throughout convention centers to direct and inform attendees of up to the minute show information.
We became the first official  LED  vendors for both the show management and the exhibitors of some of the largest shows in the country such as The Intl. Consumer Electronics Show and COMDEX. Working with show operations to locate & program our LED  message displays with all their daily show information & directions. Our displays were hung up and placed on stands throughout walkways & lobbies in convention centers & hotels.  We also were given a booth in the sevice areas to provide rentals to the exhibiting companies for LED booth headers. With theses new displays on veiw to the hundreds of thousand attendess, our rental  business thrived, while educating the use of these LED displays our sales grew. Mandex supplied CES with over 24 large 5-20ft LED signs for each show spanning over 10 years. During that time we did market research on how our LEDsigns could be best located & programmed.  We spent weeks on the show floor finding out optimal distance, what visual effects worked best and how to get attendees attention & hold it by talking to people and filling out surveys.
