Trafficware opens Canadian base of operations
Trafficware, a Houston-based manufacturer of transportation products, announced the launch of its Canadian operations yesterday at the International Municipal Signal Association’s Canadian Traffic Expo in the Greater Toronto Area.
“The cornerstone of our growth is people, and we’ve actively sought the best and brightest industry talent,” says Jeff Spinazze, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “So, we’re delighted to announce that industry veteran Juwal Steiner will lead our Canadian operations as our Senior Business Development Manager.
“Trafficware has more than three decades of experience solving traffic management challenges around the world and has earned a reputation for unmatched quality, technological leadership and customer success in the United States. As someone who grew up in Ontario, it gives me great pride to establish our company north of the border as we continue this growth and expansion.”
For the Canadian market, Trafficware’s presence provides transportation authorities direct access to a trusted technology and manufacturing solutions provider. Factory direct sales will encompass Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime Provinces while Fortran Traffic Systems will serve the Western Canada Provinces from Manitoba to British Columbia.
Transportation authorities rely on Trafficware’s technology to manage their communities’ complex traffic networks. Key customers include the states of Louisiana, South Carolina and New York; counties such as Palm Beach, Florida; Santa Clara, California; and Broward, Florida; and cities like Las Vegas, Orlando, New Orleans, Palo Alto and Cairo, Egypt. The company’s Synchro® traffic analysis product alone is used by engineers in more than 90 countries and in every province in Canada and state in the United States.
