Econolite has acquired its distribution partner, Western Pacific Signal (WPS), for an undisclosed sum.
WPS is based in the San Francisco Bay Area and operates throughout the western US, distributing and integrating adaptive signal control, advanced traffic management systems and connected vehicle systems.
The deal gives Econolite, which is part of the Umovity brand with PTV Group, access to experienced technical sales and field support technicians in the region.
“The acquisition allows WPS and Econolite to combine resources and improve efficiencies, which in turn helps us continue to deliver increased value to our customers,” says Don Shupp, president of WPS.
He also spoke of "incredible synergies" between the companies between our two , which will "enable us to continue to innovate and deliver enhanced solutions and services to support the evolving needs of transportation agencies".
Mike McIntee, Econolite vice president, western sales, praised WPS's "deep expertise in ITS products".
WPS was formed 25 years ago and began working with Econolite in 2018.
