The newest member of the Econolite Group of companies, Aegis ITS was founded in 2009 on the very principles of its name as its approach and mission to serve customers - to protect, safeguard and support. This philosophy is deeply rooted in all aspects of Econolite's business and everything we do. So when we established our stand-alone engineering and ITS systems integration services arm, we formed Aegis ITS according to our long-standing commitment to serving the needs of our customers.
In addition, Aegis ITS has direct access to all of the transportation tools, products and systems available from the entire Econolite Group. By providing the necessary tools, products, engineering services, and systems expertise to implement ITS solutions at all levels, we're helping customers maximize the capabilities of their ITS investments, significantly contributing to ITS sustainability and enhancing long-term mobility. Leveraging our Team Econolite service and maintenance national network, Aegis ITS was immediately able to establish itself as a nationwide ITS solutions integrator and service provider.
Since service is one or our cornerstones of operation, we provide true 24/7 service capabilities. In addition, our project and engineering services management experience and teamEpro project management software was carefully and strategically developed in house through years of providing spec contract services to cities and DOTs. This experience and capabilities were not bought. We take pride in investing in the development, training and growth of our employees, as well as working closely with our customers to provide tailored solutions. So, our customers are assured that they will only receive expert, licensed service providers and powerful engineering capabilities, ensuring that their streets and ITS systems are operating as efficiently and safely as possible.
