Olympic torch passing through Stoke-on-Trent
Wednesday 30 May 2012
There is a buzz here in Stoke-on-Trent, as we prepare to guide the Olympic torch through the city over two days, the 30th and 31st May.
Stoke-on-Trent has been a prominent city for many years, being the home of pottery manufacturing since the 17th century, and a centre for coal mining and steel production throughout history. As a thriving centre of industry and culture, Stoke-on-Trent was given the coveted honour of being included in the Olympic torch relay, something Impulse has a very keen interest in.
As a distributor of industrial computers, and supplier of digital signage systems and embedded PCs, Impulse has been heavily involved in some of the finer details in the build up to the Olympics. Aside from the glitz and the glamour of the events on the athletic track, swimming pools and football field, there are many aspects that need to be taken care of, such as digital signage and data communication, even down to the transport and parking systems.
Impulse has been working closely with many end customers who specialise in projects relating to the transport infrastructure in London and have provided a wide range of industrial computer products in and around the Olympic stadia. Many of road signs and traffic management displays that the torch bearer will be running past on the way to the Olympic Stadium will encompass embedded products supplied by Impulse and our customers.
Impulse is very pleased to be part of the UK’s business infrastructure that will hopefully help make the London 2012 Olympic games a resounding success, and are proud to be situated in a city that has been chosen to form part of the Olympic torch relay route.
