Dick Campbell founded Campbell Company, a subsidiary of H.D. Campbell – an electrical components distributing company, in Seattle, Washington 1972. Campbell Company, founded solely to provide products to the traffic industry, was instrumental in establishing the 2 inch pedestrian push button as a traffic industry standard. It has since then become a Federal requirement defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act Access and Guidelines.
In 1998, manufacturing operations moved to Boise, Idaho. Campbell Company began manufacturing pedestrian pushbuttons and innovating new designs by listening to traffic engineers in the field. The 4 EVR pedestrian push button (PPB) with the pressure sensitive Peizo electric switch solved freezing issues with mechanical PPBs’ in Alaska winters that were stuck in a constant call state.
Today, Campbell Company is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company that designs, engineers, and manufactures pedestrian accessibility products that focus on the traffic industry – specifically the intersection crosswalk. In a new 12,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, Campbell Company continues its legacy as a leader in innovation and product development in Accessible Pedestrian Signals, Push Buttons, and Pedestrian Stations.
