DBi Services Acquires Digital Traffic Systems to Expand into Intelligent Infrastructure Operations and Maintenance

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.
