Econolite, part of Umovity and a provider of advanced traffic management solutions, has announced the acquisition of its distribution partner, RAI Products’ (RAI) operational business.
The acquisition will enable Econolite to further expand its one-stop-shop portfolio of ITS solutions while strengthening its vendor relations and distribution reach particularly in the Southeast US region.
“It was exciting when we established our partnership with RAI as an Econolite distributor back in 2011,” said Jim Madden, Econolite’s vice president, eastern sales. “I am equally excited about this expanded relationship and the opportunity to leverage our joint resources in delivering continued high quality traffic management technologies and services to our customers.”
RAI was formed in 1954 and has demonstrated continued growth for 70 years, serving the transportation management industry throughout the Southeastern United States. RAI is one of the largest stocking distributors of traffic signal equipment in the industry and has an impeccable reputation for on-time delivery of ITS software and hardware applications for all facets of the traffic management ecosystem.
“RAI has served traffic management communities throughout the Southeast, and has built enduring relationships with agencies, contractors, and transportation solution providers,” added John Rosenblatt, president of RAI. “This acquisition represents our steadfast commitment to sustainable mobility by providing the industry with the best traffic control technologies and ITS solutions.”
