VMS are sign of the times

From roadside alerts and major highway signage to BBC Proms in the Park and the Rugby World Cup, there’s no shortage of demand for Variable Message Signage.

Clancy Plant Traffic Management Systems was founded in 2008 for the service provision of Traffic Management. The Company has focused on a partnership approach, engaging and working with clients and key stakeholders to ensure that levels of service consistently are met and exceeded.

In 2015 Clancy Plant formed a strategic partnership with Rennicks MTS – a leader in the Variable Message Signs (VMS) rental market.

Clancy Plant Account Manager Caroline Walton commented,

“The business really has gone from strength to strength. Since joining the business over a year and half ago, we have significantly invested in new assets to meet the growing demand for our services. We are not only a big supplier to local authorities but have also begun to work with large event organisers such as BBC Proms in the Park and, more recently, The Rugby World Cup.”

The integration of the VMS stream into the Traffic Management business unit means that Clancy Plant has the capability to provide complete solutions to key market segments across the UK, including Local Authorities, National Highways, Utilities, Retail, Traffic Management Contractors, and Events.
