GTT Adds J.O. Herbert as Regional Dealer
The J.O. Herbert Company becomes Global Traffic Technologies’ new dealer in the Mid-Atlantic.
September 10, 2020 (ST. PAUL, Minn.) – Global Traffic Technologies (GTT) has added the J.O. Herbert Company, Inc. as its newest regional distributor of traffic control equipment in Maryland and Virginia.
Found in 1973 and based in suburban Richmond, VA, J.O. Herbert has supplied quality traffic control equipment for more than four decades to customers in the aforementioned states. During this time, the J.O. Herbert Company has participated in the technology evolution. Having technical knowledge that ranges from a fixed-time traffic signal controller to transportation networks with real-time analytics, J.O. Herbert Company’s goal is to take a progressive approach to improve its customers’ transportation systems.
Second-generation owner Jack Herbert IV believes this is a perfect time for the new partnership since Traffic Operation Centers are implementing new technology such as Advanced Traffic Signal Controllers and Cabinets to communicate with connected vehicles.
“GTT customers can be confident that Opticom will easily integrate into their new systems with support from J.O. Herbert’s local technical team,” Herbert IV said. “The J.O. Herbert Company is ready to assist customers with design, supply and installation of Opticom™ in their transportation system.”
“GTT’s new partnership with JO Herbert has already shown positive results,” said Jan Ruderman, GTT’s senior vice president of sales. “The Mid-Atlantic is a critical region for us, and nobody has a better track record of success in those states. That experience will be crucial as we promote the transition to a software-based cloud solution in support of the evolution to connected vehicles.”
