A Brief History of Motus Traffic

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. This acquisition gave Motus access to more contracts and a skilled workforce to supplement its own.

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.

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.

Established in 1982 by seven experienced traffic signal engineers, the Co-operative started with a single maintenance contract, that of Sheffield. TSC have the skills required to repair, install and maintain traffic signal equipment, detect fault location and repair printed circuit boards down to component level. The collective knowledge and skills formed the catalyst to enable the company to develop into the successful service business that Motus acquired.
