The traffic control industry in Illinois had it's beginnings in the mid 1950's, and Barricade Lites was right there at the forefront.  In 1959, Henry and Marion VanLeuven founded the company from the basement of their home in Lombard, Illinois.  Hard work and perseverance paid off, and in 1965 they were able to move the company into a dedicated facility on Swift Road in Lombard.
Over the next 17 years, Barricade Lites grew into a reputable, high quality traffic control company.  In 1980, Henry and Marion sold the business to their son-in-law, Ruben S. Vazquez, and in 1987 Ruben moved the company to its present location in Addison, Illinois.



Since then we have continued to grow, providing large, well-known companies such as Commonwealth Edison and SBC Ameritech with a high level of service they've come to rely on.  In 2003, Ruben's son, Charles R. Vazquez, was promoted to the position of Vice President, in anticipation of continuing our longstanding tradition of family ownership.

The traffic control industry has changed a great deal since Barricade Lites came on the scene over 45 years ago, but the foundations of a good business have not.  Honesty, integrity, and quality have been our trademarks since the beginning, and to this day our family name still depends on our commitment to these values.
Please consider giving us the opportunity to meet your traffic control and protection needs.  We look forward to showing you what has made Barricade Lites Inc. the leading family-owned traffic control company in Illinois!
