Serving the Traffic Light Contractors for their certified inspection and welding requirements

As can be read from “Our History”, we have not always been implicated with the like of the street/traffic light and traffic signal contractor. At our inception, we were primarily involved in sales, design/drafting and engineering. From there, we implemented the quality control and management function as an integral part of our operating program. Later, we partnered with fabricating, transporting and installing various equipment in food processing and chemical facilities. Recognizing additional needs, then coupled with manipulating and placement of overhead signs and pole lighting systems, we amplified the operation by performing weld inspections, alterations and repairs.  

Spotlighting a few of our projects, along with the listing of some of our notable clients, our credentials and experience, reflects on the working relationships we have established over the years with the pole manufacturers, distributors, street/traffic lighting and traffic signal contractors.
