Radarsign 3Q12: New, Larger HQ + 25 Percent Increase in Staff
ALPHARETTA, Ga., July 16, 2012—Multiple, high-volume DOT sales—single orders of 30 or more signs—are just one of the benchmarks of increased momentum behind Radarsign’s™ 3Q move to a larger facility and plans to hire new employees.
Radarsign was founded in 2004 by three Atlanta men—Ken Bass, a former Georgia State Trooper turned high-tech business manager; Barry Ward, a laser-optics, electrography and microprocessor engineer; and Charlie Robeson, a sales and marketing executive—who live in neighborhoods where speed signs were often ignored, causing their communities to be unsafe at times. Just eight years later, this is Radarsign’s third expansion due to increasing customer demand and market expansion.
The new corporate headquarters will be 15 percent larger than the current location and will accommodate a projected 25 percent growth in staff. Radarsign driver feedback signs are engineered and manufactured in the USA—at this location—so the state-of-the-art facility will feature an expanded warehouse, manufacturing and assembly room, testing arena, offices and more.
The move also facilitates a company-wide migration to leading-edge, cloud-based technologies and solutions. The new layout will allow Radarsign to more than double current production without having to expand again.
“The need for more space is a positive reflection of our Radarsign products and our internal team and our network of distributors,” said Charlie Robeson, Radarsign co-founder and managing partner. “Since we founded Radarsign, we’ve been committed to producing products that are MUTCD compliant, dependable, ecological and affordable. It’s what customers—particularly municipalities—are looking for. Because of this, we are seeing an increased number of repeat and word-of-mouth referrals.”
Radarsign’s new headquarters is located at: 1095 Windward Ridge Parkway, Suite 150 Alpharetta, GA 30005. Fax (678-278-1256) and phone numbers (678-520-5152 or 678-965-4814) remain unchanged.
In 2004, Atlanta-based Radarsign™ established new industry standards for traffic-calming solutions with the debut of the world’s first armored radar speed signs, which are vandal, weather and bullet-resistant. The industry’s most durable radar speed signs are also the most ecological and energy efficient. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, Radarsign products are MUTCD-compliant and utilize recycled aluminum, innovative LED reflector technology, minimal battery power and solar panels to deliver bright, easy-to-read feedback to drivers. Radarsign products are scientifically proven to reduce drivers’ speeds and have been entrusted to provide safe and effective traffic-calming solutions for: municipalities, treasured national parks, schools, neighborhoods, military bases, and private and public development projects across the U.S., Canada and overseas. www.Radarsign.com.
