CHICAGO (PRWEB) June 22, 2018
RoadSafe Traffic Systems has announced the formation of a new Industrial Services Group that focuses specifically on railroad and utility market customers.
In today’s challenging roadway environment with more traffic congestion and distracted drivers, just two risk factors of many, private companies as well as government groups are looking for better ways to keep their workers safe while ensuring the safety of the motoring public, bicyclists and pedestrians in and around their work zones. Formation of the new Industrial Services Group was necessitated due to the rise in demand by railroad and utility groups for reliable traffic safety experts who can keep their workers safe and handle the work zone requirements for emergency work, repair, maintenance and construction operations. Customers include both public and private entities for power generation, telecommunications and railroad companies as well as those contractors and engineers who handle contract work in these industries.
According to Neil Carlson, RoadSafe’s Vice President of Business Development, “I think the key to our success in working with these customers is not only our stellar safety record but it’s about our ability to mobilize RoadSafe’s trained and certified crews wherever necessary and deploy equipment from our vast network of branches and satellite locations in the lower 48 states.”
RoadSafe has also assembled a national business development team of four regional experts who work with new customers and prospects to provide safe solutions for any challenging set of circumstances in order to minimize risk in work zones. They are Jeff Meirick from the Phoenix, AZ branch serving the West, Eric Webber from the Columbus, OH branch serving the Midwest, Chris Layton from the Columbia, SC branch serving the Southeast and Jim Joyce from the Philadelphia, PA area covering Mid-Atlantic States. Services include set-ups for lane and road closures, detours, flagging operations, emergency traffic safety, temporary signage, traffic safety design—anything that’s required for optimum safety on the job. Carlson further added, "I’m very excited to bring these talented individuals into the Industrial Services Group. They have extensive experience working with highly successful sales organizations and possess traffic safety industry knowledge. Their addition to our team will bring a new dimension to RoadSafe’s national footprint and allow us to grow partnerships across the United States.”
