DBi Services (DBi) has acquired Digital Traffic Systems, Inc. (DTS), an intelligent transportation systems (ITS) company. As the transportation market continues to evolve, and cars become more connected and autonomous, DBi sees an opportunity to better serve its more than 3,000 customers by further expanding into intelligent infrastructure solutions and services. Together, DBi and DTS are a unified company for intelligent infrastructure maintenance, management, and operations including transportation technology assets that provide customers and the traveling public with real-time information and data.
“Partnering with DTS made perfect sense. We both operate and maintain different transportation assets, many times on the same roadway network. Now, we can offer our distinct yet highly complementary services and knowledge under one roof to existing and future customers,” said Mark Robinson, DBi Services President and Chief Operating Officer.
Roger Zino, DBi Chief Executive Officer, said, “This partnership gives us more insight and talent to continue to lead the industry in innovation, protect the safety of the traveling public, and anticipate the coming changes our customers will need to address as transportation continues to evolve.”
DBi and DTS have a similar customer base (typically DOTs) and will work together to ensure those customers receive the highest levels of safety, customer service and high-quality performance. DTS will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of DBi and will continue to operate out of its headquarters in Ashland, Virginia.
“We eagerly anticipate the start of work alongside the team at DBi. This partnership provides us with the resources and support to more quickly expand our specialized transportation technology services into expanded markets and strengthens our capabilities and focus on providing ITS and traffic data services for our customers,” said Peter Keen, DTS President and Chief Operating Officer. “As a larger and more diverse company we can also provide more opportunities for advancement for our employees and deliver specialized technical support more effectively.”
To better help customers make long-term planning decisions, a key area of focus for DBi is expanding into new and emerging markets that benefit customers, the traveling public, and the industry overall. DBi will continue to actively look to support companies that are impacting the future of transportation with significant investments and strategic collaborations.
