Never ones to compromise, Shergan Traffic Solutions reached out to Ritherdon to find innovative solutions to deliver on their commitment of creating safer and more beautiful roads in their homeland of Ireland.

Ritherdon, who also has a strong commitment to functionality and design, caught their eye.

Always on the lookout for innovation, they enquired about the Ritherdon Atlas Retention Socket, which is used to install poles in all their variations, bollards, and signs posts amongst them.

The advantage of using the Ritherdon Atlas Retention Socket is that once the pole is installed, it can easily be removed again without excavation, making it an ideal solution for replacing poles after a crash, changing the boundary of an area, or performing maintenance, making the Ritherdon Atlas Retention Socket’s sleek design and smart, Stainless Steel finish, a perfect fit for Shergan.

The two companies have now joined forces, aligning their shared values as family-run businesses, with Ritherdon products now being distributed throughout Ireland in a newly established partnership.
