Our Story

Didn't all great American ideas start in a garage?


  Hello, I'm Mike Madrid.  

       In the early 80's I worked for the Highway Department for the state of Indiana.  I saw a void  in locally sourced traffic safety products and services, so I jumped at the opportunity to build something myself.  In 1984, I left my job and started The Mike Madrid, Company (MMCO). With a  few savvy mentors, family support and a whole lot of sleepless nights off I went, never looking back.

      The company matured as did I, and now we're stronger than ever.  From our first location in a  friends garage to our newest state of the art 20,000 sqft headquarters, we are ready to serve your needs with confidence as the leader in traffic safety services and products.


Here is a look back from The Mike Madrid Company

to Highway Safety Services...
