TxDOT signs two-year contract with Statewide Safety Systems

DALLAS, TX – September 2, 2020 – Statewide Safety Systems recently was awarded a two-year contract by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to provide services and equipment for its operations in Wood and Van Zandt counties. As part of the agreement, Statewide will supply more than a dozen employees daily, as well as equipment including pilot vehicles and truck-mounted attenuators.

TxDOT is responsible for maintaining 80,000 miles of road and supporting aviation, maritime, rail and public transportation across the state. Statewide expanded its operations into nearby Tyler, Texas in 2019, and continues to grow its service offerings in eastern Texas.

“Eastern Texas is a rapidly growing area. The city of Tyler alone has a larger population than many better known places such as Fort Myers, Florida and Green Bay, Wisconsin,” stated Travis Riley, Texas Regional Manager for Statewide Traffic Safety & Signs. “As the region grows, providing safe work zones is a critical component that Statewide specializes in.”

“For nearly 20 years, Statewide and its predecessor company, Altus Traffic Management, have been proud to partner with TxDOT to provide safe, reliable and cost-effective services for the people of Texas,” said Don Nicholas, CEO of Statewide Safety Systems. “This is an exciting opportunity to continue our partnership as the company continues to expand its footprint.”

Welcome to the New Statewide Safety Systems.

Don Nicholas, the CEO of California-based Traffic Solutions Corp, announced April 1st that its four affiliated companies, Statewide Traffic Safety & Signs, Safety Systems and Signs Hawaii, Maneri Sign Company, and Altus Traffic, are now officially operating as Statewide Safety Systems.

Nicholas said, “Each one of these four companies shares the same mission, to keep drivers, pedestrians, and workers safe in their local communities. That means being a resource our client partners can rely on for traffic safety planning, crews, equipment, and more.”

The organizational change was initiated after a comprehensive marketing study that resulted in a unique brand identity for the company: Statewide Safety Systems, one-stop shop for all the traffic planning and services, signage, equipment rentals, protective gear and everything needed for safely managing work zones.

“With these four companies serving as leaders in their respective markets, it really made more sense to us all natural that they can all work together under one unified brand name. This consistency in all our markets will support our continued growth,” adds Don.

Along with the new brand name and logo identity system, Statewide is rolling out a new website, work wear, signage, vehicle graphics, and more. Not only does this process communicate the company’s unique offerings to the market, but it also builds camaraderie among the work zone crews and traffic planning experts employed at 15 locations spread out over 10 states in the western US and Hawaii.

Nicholas says, “Our teams feel a strong sense of pride in their work. Day and night, they are making a real difference in keeping their local communities safe and helping them grow.”

Statewide management is confident this brand evolution is a positive step for the company’s future plans. “After 40 years of success and growth, uniting under the Statewide Safety Systems brand will communicate our unique offering to the markets we serve. We will continue to be the one-stop shop for the safety systems they need.”
