About Us

How it Started

Our story began on Bob and Fran van Bruggen's family farm in 2004, when we took over ownership of Barricade Illumination Services. The early years were focused on manufacturing signs and distributing a small offering of traffic safety products. As a family owned and operated business, our livelihood was built on providing quality service and customer satisfaction which still stands true today.

Where We are Today

We’ve grown beyond the farm shed and have diversified the company. We’ve built a team full of traffic safety professionals who add value to our customers and business partners. We offer a full range of roadside safety products and onsite traffic services providing solutions to our customers across Western Canada. Whatever the situation, our approach remains the same: establish a relationship that transforms the way people look at traffic safety.
