Founded in 1967 in Seoul, South Korea, Hyundai Motor Group is currently the world’s fourth largest automobile manufacturer, with approximately 6,000 dealerships in 190 countries. The company’s U.S. locations are in the midst of being re-branded with new aluminum composite material (ACM) signage, in accordance with guidelines established as part of Hyundai’s Global Sign Program. It’s a five-year initiative that will involve 851 dealerships. The contract to fabricate the required ACM panels was awarded to Architectural Graphics Incorporated (AGI) of Virginia Beach, VA. The ACM being used exclusively by AGI for the project is ALPOLIC ACM from Mitsubishi Plastics Composites America.

Not all dealerships will be the same, but the signage elements will all use 4mm-thick ALPOLIC material in colors Hyundai Program Blue and Hyundai Program Silver. The material is produced at the Mitsubishi Plastics Composites America manufacturing facility in Chesapeake, VA. The elements to be produced include 60 ft.-tall high-rise signs, pylon signs, fascia, freestanding gateways, and 20’x20’ cubes featured above each dealership’s main entrance. For the facilities already re-imaged, AGI fabricated pylon signs at its shop and then shipped them to the individual dealer locations for installation.

In addition to ALPOLIC’s capability of producing both a custom blue and silver finishes specifically for Hyundai, fabricators at AGI praised ALPOLIC for its appearance, performance, cost, and their “successful past experience with the product.”
