How it Started

he seed of our journey was sown in the heart of Bob and Fran van Bruggen’s cherished family farm in 2004. An opportunity arose during this time, marking a pivotal moment in our history – we became the proud custodians of Barricade Illumination Services. Our focus during these early stages was fairly straightforward yet profoundly important: the meticulous crafting of signs and carefully distributing a select range of traffic safety goods.

As a family-operated venture, we inherently understood the importance of personalized touch, unwavering dedication, and heartfelt connection. Our very existence, our growth, and the footprint we hoped to leave in the world, was intricately tied to two core principles: the promise of delivering exceptional service and the unwavering commitment to ensure absolute customer satisfaction.

Fast forward to the present day, and these values have become the bedrock of our operation, remaining as relevant and potent as they were in our earliest days. They have been our guiding star, shaping our ethos and informing every decision, and they continue to inspire us to strive for excellence in all we do. Despite the changes and growth we’ve experienced, the heart of our business remains the same. Our story is a testament to the lasting impact of solid principles, family bonds, and a relentless commitment to our customers.

Where We are Today

From humble beginnings within the walls of a simple farm shed, our company has matured, expanded, and diversified.
