Motus Traffic Ltd – Bigger, Better, and Stronger
Following the successful acquisition of Traffic Systems Co-Operative in October 2014, Motus would like to announce recent changes within the company structure that will maximise on the synergies within, whilst optimising our service, quality, and commitment to the industry.
As with any big change Motus recognised there would need to be a period of live operational analysis which would highlight any need for change. As a fluid company that moves with industry and business trends Motus have re-structured the company over a three month period to ensure continued delivery of our services and products through optimisation and innovation.
As a subsequence of the acquisition Motus now deliver products and services to 21 Local Authorities and Highways Agency agents, from Scotland to Surrey, maintaining approximately 6,000 traffic signals installations. Motus will continue working on our strengths to develop and achieve approval of sector related products that can integrate with existing client systems whilst adding reliability and cost benefits to our customers.
Significant changes introduced, which are effective from 9th January 2015, are: Jim Booth has long been the committed driving force behind Motus Traffic, Jim will now move from his position as Managing Director to Chairman, making way for Iain McDonald to succeed Jim as Managing Director. Iain joined Motus Traffic during September 2009 as General Manager and has proven to be key to the growth and success of the business, as well as its financial stability. Andrew Eyre joined Motus as Finance Director in October 2014, his role will compliment and support the achievement of the company’s ambitious plans and completes what will be the Motus Board.
Brian Cochrane, who was responsible for Motus’ Scottish operation and training of Motus staff, will now oversee five regions supported by a team of regional managers. Brian’s success and reputation within Scotland and the industry has demonstrated a benchmark that cannot be ignored and will be the benchmark by which all regional managers will be measured. Supporting Brian Motus have a team of regional managers; Mark Cook (Scotland), Alan Goodwin (South) and Chris Webb (North West) who was previously the Maintenance Manager for Motus.
Donnie Bellshaw who was the QEHS Manager for Motus and was key to the successful achievement of OHSAS 18001 accreditation for Motus and development of Motus ISO 9001 and 14001 accreditations will now be responsible for all Operational aspects of the business, developing clear communications and support to achieve optimum business performance.
Samantha Williams as HR advisor will oversee the HR and Training departments within the business. Staff training and development continues to be a key focus of the business in 2015 and will see the launch of our Training School which will focus on internal and external training of sector staff, including the continuation of our commitment to our Apprenticeship Programme.
The continued technical development of our products and expertise continues to be at the forefront of our business, setting standards that others endeavour to follow. Jim Booth will continue to provide his extensive expertise and knowledge to an already established and industry respected team, ensuring we maintain our focus and standing in the market place.
2015 promises to be an exciting time for Motus Traffic both at home and abroad. We look forward to a great year of continued growth and success
