Founded in 2007, through the merger of USCO and Techmiracle, Motus Traffic Limited is a Sheffield based company that Manufactures, Supplies, Installs and Maintains, Traffic Signal Control technologies in both the urban and inter-urban markets. In 2014 Motus acquired another Sheffield based company, Traffic Systems Contractors, formerly a co-operative.

Early Days - USCO
USCO, a Sheffield based company was founded in 1996 by Andy Shaw and in 1999 the company became USCO Traffic when Jim Booth joined the business bringing with him over 20 years experience in Traffic Signal installation, maintenance and repairs.
Formation of Motus Traffic Limited
In 2007 USCO Traffic merged with Techmiracle, a company specialising in the supply of traffic signals equipment. This was a good fit as USCO delivered the service and Techmiracle had the product lines. The introduction of the Motus TM-150-2 Traffic Signal Controller has shown the future of traffic signal control and provided a standard for competitors to match.
Motus have from inception grown year on year through the delivery of the best Integrated Transport System (ITS) solutions, materials, services and products. The growth has shown year on year increases in
turnover and profitability during the recent difficult financial climate, increasing market share through the delivery of high quality, competitive, ITS solutions.
Expertise and Experience
With experienced and expert teams, Motus work with private and public sector Clients across the UK introducing new technologies and delivering a turnkey service supporting the ability to deliver cost
effective solutions and removing the requirement for third party support.
Acquisition of TSC
In 2014 Motus acquired Traffic Signals Contractors. This brought about an expansion of market share and meant more skilled staff in the business, which has allowed Motus to consolidate its position as a market leader in the ITS industry.
A Brief History of TSC
Traffic Systems Co-Operative (TSC) was a Worker Co-operative also based in Sheffield, trading since 1982 in Traffic Signal Engineering, servicing maintenance contracts across the North of England and Wales.
Installation teams operate across a much wider geographical area, having the experience and skills to install and commission all forms of traffic signal equipment. As a Worker Co-operative the business model
that enabled workers to own and govern the company, the automatic engaging of the workforce resulted in greater emphasis on service delivery than generation of profit.
