Banner How Canvys Works

The display market is a global market. Therefore, a solution provider must be positioned globally. Canvys most certainly meets this requirement.
As a longtime specialist in OEM and custom display engineering, we are proud to serve customers worldwide that are among the market leaders in their respective industries. We design and manufacture top-quality display products that fit perfectly to the needs of the OEM’s complete solution.


As an experienced OEM supplier, we think in terms of global benchmarks. At the same time, we are always present locally. We are engaged with the OEM team from the initial steps of design through the entire product lifecycle including support. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the newest technologies – keeping our customers informed every step of the way.


Button Think Global Act Local


Being able to act locally means more than just cultivating good relationships. In the solution concept, it is important to understand local conditions, laws, and regulatory requirements, as well as cultural differences/habits and linguistic peculiarities. Canvys applies this best practice with all our customers – ensuring a successful transaction and/or project, as well as legal and investment security for our customers.

3. Headquarters/branch offices

Our customers benefit from our branch offices in the US and Europe. In this way Canvys has a local and international presence, regardless of where the customer is located. This positioning also accommodates our global accounts, which usually have locations in the US and Europe.


With its Asian team, Canvys also has direct access to the display market in the Far East, giving it a certain independence from manufacturers. In this way we are aware of all market movements, all developments, and everything that happens. We can think ahead, act quickly at any time, and make the right decisions for your project (e.g., technology trends, product roadmaps, EOL processes, ...).

4. Suppliers/sourcing

In production as well as procurement: Asia is crucial! Canvys therefore operates its own field office directly in Taiwan with a highly qualified team of native Chinese speakers reporting to our main offices.


These employees form the interface to our branch offices in the United States and Europe. They are in direct contact with our ODM manufacturers and coordinate all processes within sourcing. In addition, our local team takes care of procurement of additional components that have to be purchased in the Far East.

5. Manufacturing/production

ODMs (original design manufacturers) in Asia

We have the basis of all our solutions – the actual display – manufactured by our ODM and CM partners in Asia according to our strict specifications. As already mentioned several times: In the monitor business, there is no alternative to Asia! Displays and Asia are inseparable. Every large and credible display technology provider knows this.


CMs (contract manufacturers) in the US, Europe, and Germany

Depending on the customer project or application requirement, further modifications are made either with contractual partners in America or Germany or as a small series in the proprietary production of Canvys.
