High Quality, Low Maintenance Supplier

"Liquid Crystal Images is one of those high quality, low maintenance suppliers that a manufacturer is always seeking. LCi has provided very critical, custom display component for over a decade to Utility Relay Co. During that time, I cannot recall a single late delivery or any problems whatsoever. At LCi, Mr. Timothy Oakes is a very knowledgeable about the display industry, and has provided valuable information helpful to new product designs."

Excellent Quality, An Integral Partner

"Here at Itron, we have been a customer of Liquid Crystal Images for many years. LCi has been an integral part of this relationship by handling the day to day interaction with the factory. This interaction is reflected in the overall excellent performance of the LCDs. They have been instrumental in developing the automation process of placing the LCD into a holder and creating a connection via zebra strip between the display & metrology board."
