Dick Campbell founded Campbell Company, a subsidiary of H.D. Campbell – an electrical components distributing company, in Seattle, Washington, in 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 November of 2020 the Tate family, owners since 1998, sold the company to it’s employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The employees look to build upon the great success of Campbell Company and continue to provide innovative and reliable products with the pedestrian in mind. With the change in ownership comes a rebranding of Campbell Company to “PedSafety,” reflecting the main goal of the company as a leader in Pedestrian Safety.
Campbell Company is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company that designs, engineers, and manufactures pedestrian accessibility products that focus on the traffic industry – specifically the intersection crosswalk.
