Atkore International Announces Acquisition of Sign Support Systems™ Product Line
January 21, 2021 HARVEY, Ill.– Atkore International Group Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: ATKR), a leading provider of electrical, safety and infrastructure solutions, today announced the acquisition of Sign Support Systems™, including the Break-Out™ signpost couplers, from Skidril Industries LLC.
The Break-Out signpost couplers complements Atkore’s existing Telespar® traffic product with an easy-to-use breakaway system that can be anchored in soil, asphalt or concrete. The coupler propels the signpost away from an errant vehicle upon impact, protecting passengers from potentially dangerous situations.
For the last 56 years, Telespar has been a market leader in square signpost products by providing a superior design allowing for greater wind load capabilities, improved corrosion resistance and delivering first-class customer service. The Telespar system is available with four types of posts, and is primarily designed for signpost usage but is adaptable to identification signage, parking meter posts, barricades and numerous other applications (Telespar).
According to Brian Breidigan, Vice President & General Manager, “This acquisition in combination with Atkore’s commitment to further investments in the Telespar product portfolio, through new products and testing to MASH standards, reinforces Atkore as a market leader across all traffic-related products and accessories.”
Terms of the sale are undisclosed.
