Traffic Control Supervisors
Safety Signal Company was co-founded and incorporated in 1969 by two brother-in-laws, Dave Bussey and Jim Shirley. The company was located in Forest Park, Georgia and initially focused its direction in serving the barricade rental needs for local city and county road departments, as well as for other new construction projects. At that time, the primary product used for road safety warning was the Type I Barricade with a flasher light. The company manufactured the barricades at the Forest Park location and quickly made a name for itself by providing this rental service around the clock, 24/7, allowing for any emergency situation a customer may have.
As the city of Atlanta and the surrounding metro area began to grow and expand, the traffic increases began to impact not only the Atlanta area but respectively the entire state of Georgia
