Honoring Our Nation’s Heroes with a Veterans Wall Display

UGI Utilities Proudly Recognizes Military Veteran Team Members​

A long-time Graphcom client, UGI Utilities, Inc., is a natural gas and electric utility company committed to delivering reliable, safe, and affordable energy to 700,000 customers in 45 counties throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, and more. UGI Utilities is a wholly owned subsidiary of UGI Corporation, an international distributor and marketer of energy products and services, including natural gas, liquefied natural gas, electricity, and renewable energy solutions, backed by more than 137 consecutive years of expertise.

The Challenge

UGI Utilities wanted to create a display that acknowledges approximately 120 current military veteran employees. For optimal exposure, the display needed to be located in the UGI Learning Center on a hallway wall near their Cafe. UGI’s Internal Veterans Committee team led the initiative and partnered closely with Graphcom to determine the best way to honor and thank each veteran on the team.

The Solution

We began by creating the overall concept for the wall, building upon existing signage design and substrates and incorporating static and digital components, including a TV display to be updated by the UGI staff internally. The goal was to create a flexible, personable, and eye-catching display that included all military branch insignias and used photography when possible.

After finalizing the overall design, Graphcom produced and installed the signage display. The final piece features all six military branches—Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Space Force—and represents honor, legacy, education, and a sense of pride for those who served. All six military insignias were UV printed onto a brushed silver with painted returns. The TV screen cycles through a PowerPoint presentation designed by Graphcom that features each UGI veteran, tying them to their respective service branch.

The Results

Graphcom finished this piece by late October, just in time for UGI’s celebration of Veterans Day on November 11 and saving on next year’s budget. We strategically created a display that is easy and cost-effective for the UGI team to update on their end, as employees come and go throughout the years.

Several members of the UGI team, including the Executive Assistant of the President and CFO and the Senior Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds, shared appreciative words celebrating the piece and highlighting the quality of work. Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country, and it was an honor to give them a hero’s welcome at the UGI Utilities Learning Center.
