Other products in the Poletech portfolio include; Permanent Underground Base Systems (PUB’s) for signposts, Pedestrian Guardrails, Demountable Pedestrian Islands and Demountable Mini-Roundabouts.
The acquisition of Poletech Systems Ltd. and its product portfolio signifies an expansion of Ritherdon’s current range of passive safe highways products, joining the Ritherdon FlexiPole, FlexiPost and passive safe roadside cabinet.
Ritherdon Managing Director, Ben Ritherdon, said: “Poletech’s owners were looking for a good home for their products, with someone who would continue to develop them. We can see a range of great products which could be of major use to many of our customers who may not yet even be aware of them. The Poletech product applications also fit right in with our existing range, so we think it will be a perfect combination moving forward”.
