Statewide wins Los Angeles Department of Water & Power contract

Statewide teamed with Ver-Mac to deliver message board signs to the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power.

NIPOMO, CA. Statewide Safety Systems recently was awarded a contract to sell and supply the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power with 49 transportation sign message and 51 arrow boards. Statewide partnered with Ver-Mac, a leading manufacturer of mobile electronic transportation control and lighting/security equipment.

The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power is the nation’s largest municipal utility with a 7,880 megawatt electric capacity. For more than 100 years, it has provided the city with reliable water and power service and currently serves an average of 438 million gallons of water per day to the four million residents and businesses in the city.

“To be competitive on this opportunity, we partnered with Ver-Mac, a highly respected industry leader,” explained Don Nicholas, Chief Executive Officer for Statewide Safety Systems. With headquarters in Quebec, Canada, Ver-Mac opened a new U.S. manufacturing facility in Houston in 2019.

“The message boards are designed to be programmable by the end user for a number of different deployments,” continued Nicholas. “This includes everything from standard construction or closure notices and event management messages for concerts and sports events, to emergency management such as warnings or post-incident messaging. Statewide provides training and user support after the sale to ensure the customer is able to maximize all of the benefits.”

Statewide will deliver Ver-Mac single mast, solar 25-light arrow boards and the PCMS-548/HYD. A mini full-matrix, trailer-mounted portable message sign, the PCMS-548/HYD is NTCIP compliant and offers a full complement of benefits. This includes a V-Touch controller with a 7-inch LCD touchscreen display, V-Sync Wi-Fi communication stealth technology, and JamLogic Fleet Management software. Optional tilt-and-rotate solar panels not only provide an energy efficient design, but cost effective messaging for lower speed roads and urban areas.
