Surrey, B.C. (September 5, 2023) – ATS Traffic Ltd., Canada’s leader in traffic safety services and products, announces the acquisition of Interprovincial Traffic Services (ITS), a reputable traffic technology systems provider based in Surrey, British Columbia.  

With this exciting acquisition, ATS Traffic now becomes the largest provider of intelligent transportation system technology in Canada. ITS and ATS Traffic customers will benefit from the wider network of combined branches and distribution centres across Canada and the Pacific Northwest.   

“Together with our municipal and contractor partners, we deliver some of the most sustainable and data-driven road safety solutions in the market,” said Bobby Cantera, CEO at ATS Traffic. “Canadian communities are expected to take a smart systems approach to road safety. We can now offer wider technology options to help drive safety and innovation forward on our road networks.” 

ATS Traffic continues to invest in IntelliTrafik, their technology solutions division, as well as their smart intersection resources across Canada. Customers of both ATS Traffic and ITS now have access to the largest network of traffic product brands, complimentary services, and additional customer care resources.  

“This is an incredible opportunity for us to cover new ground in the traffic industry,” said Chris Agnew, President of ITS. “We felt that ATS Traffic and IntelliTrafik’s philosophy and operation complimented our strengths very well. We are eager to offer our customers new and exciting brands thanks to this new partnership. 

The history of ITS as a company spans over 50 years in the traffic safety industry. They have built a strong reputation in delivering top quality traffic products and services to municipalities and contractors throughout Western Canada. Forming the foundation of this success are the dedicated ITS employees that have earned the respect and loyalty of their customer base by demonstrating consistent professional knowledge, service, and industry expertise.
