The purchase of Mammoth Media now gives it an East Coast manufacturing presence and gives it the ability to offer transit-specific capabilities to its more than 12,000 customers worldwide. Mutoh Announces G7 Certifications Phoenix, Arizona-based large-format print manufacturer Mutoh America announces that it has received IDEAlliance G7 certification for its G7 Calibrator software; and G7 wide format digital print certification for two of its Value-Jet printers, the VJ1624 and the VJ1638X. Orbus Partners with Nonprofits, Releases Show Guide Orbus Exhibit & Display Group and Knoxville, Tennessee- based Graphic Creations were recently partners in helping produce individualized banners to honor Medal of Honor recipients. Woodridge, Illinois-based Orbus donated 30 retractable banner stands, and the banners were displayed during the Medal of Honor 151st Anniversary Convention held Sept. 10-13 in Knoxville. The banners honored 80 living recipients of the Medal of Honor who served from World War II up to the present time. In other Orbus news, the company announces its recent support of Piedmont Graphics Inc., a North Carolina- based producer of promotional graphics, displays and products. The companies teamed up in a recent open house event in support of Tuesday's Children, a nonprofit that supports families who lost loved ones in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. On Sept. 11, 2014, Piedmont Graphics hosted 51 guests at their Promo Show, including 14 vendors—one of which was Orbus. It was the first time Piedmont had tied fundraising efforts in with its Promo Show. The company says it expects to donate about $5,000 raised at that event to Tuesday's Children. Finally, Orbus announces a new rental exhibit program and more than 100 rental display ideas in its new catalog: "The Exhibitors' Handbook Rental."
