 Find out more about our background. 

NSS – New Sign Solutions was founded in 2002 by a group of 4 associates. After an impressive growth, NSS managed to surpass the competing companies until becoming the major brand in Portugal in the field of destination displays in buses and coaches.

In the beginning, the company sold flipdot destination displays, but the costs of this technology led to it being overtaken by the LED technology, thus allowing a significant cost reduction in this type of equipment, as well as increased reliability due to the absence of moving parts.

NSS began its operation with the sale of flipdot destination displays.

After the first years, the company was fully purchased by one of the associates, Joaquim Campos, whose business vision placed NSS on a growth track that hasn’t stopped ever since.

2009 is an important year for NSS. For the first time in Portugal, a bus fleet is equipped with polychromatic destination displays, namely 40 buses from Carris, the main bus company from Lisbon, Portugal’s capital city. Along with the external destination displays, we premiered our indoor next stop displays.

NSS pioneered the implementation of polychromatic destination displays in Portugal.

Additionally, the company integrated lighting solutions in its portfolio, having implemented in the same year a warm white LED solution in a set of Cobus vehicles. The knowledge acquired by dealing with the LED technology for the destination displays was essential to perform a solid entry in the lighting field. Besides manufacturing its own LED bars and strips, NSS was now prepared to adapt a wide range of lighting solutions to the needs of its costumers.

NSS entered the automobile lighting field in 2009.

Lastly, still in 2009, NSS presents a new and sophisticated automatic bus stop announcement system.

A few years later, NSS included its displays in petrol stations of Prio, one of the major companies of this area in Portugal, namely for displaying the liter price of fuel, with white LED.

In 2014 NSS presents itself with a stand in the biggest trade fair within the bus and coach field, BusWorld, presenting brand new destination displays, with a unique and more pleasant colour temperature: warm white. These devices featured for the first time an USB interface, making database updates quicker and easier.

Since then the quality of our most recent solutions has led to growing demand, leaving us less time to develop new ideas. However, if we have products which are robust and reliable solutions, that is due to the company’s steady investment in product development through its Engineering team. We have several projects in progress, which we will present soon.

NSS’s current destination display set presents interesting aesthetics combined with the economy of LED technology as well as the optimization of the display’s weight.

NSS promotes sports.

NSS supports Fábio Mota, a young racer from Vila Nova de Gaia which is competing in the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC), a competition organized by the FIA – International Automobile Federation, for the Lein Racing team whilst driving a Seat León Cup Racer.
