Area Wide Protective Reveals New Brand
Protecting People, Business, and Time

(Kent, Ohio) January 17, 2016 – Area Wide Protective, a leading provider of traffic control services, has unveiled its new brand to customers and employees. The company recently underwent a brand refresh to bring clarity to its service offerings.

“AWP is nationally recognized as an industry leader,” said John Sypek, AWP President and Chief Executive Officer. “We felt it was important to distinguish ourselves accordingly, and to more clearly articulate what it is that we provide our customers.”

AWP’s new logo uses a shield as its icon and the tagline, Protect Your People, Protect Your Business, Protect Your Time. Through extensive employee safety training, efficient processes, innovative technology, and an industry leading liability insurance program per project, AWP has become the gold standard in temporary traffic control.

AWP executives and management traveled across its 19-state service footprint over the last several weeks of 2016 to personally roll out the company’s new brand to its customers and employees. Anyone interested in learning more about the rebrand may contact

AWP has grown steadily since its founding in 1993, and has achieved three acquisitions in less than 13 months.

“We are on a mission to makes roads safer – everywhere,” said Sypek.

AWP has been serving utilities, municipalities, special events, and contractor companies since 1993. Our more than 60 locations provide daily operations that span more than 19 states. As America’s Traffic Control leader, AWP’s mission is to make roads safer. AWP is a comprehensive, one-stop traffic control organization, providing around the clock service every day of the year.
