About Warning Lites of Appleton

Founded in 1966 by Gregory James (Bud) Mauel, Warning Lites of Appleton offers a complete range of traffic safety products and services. Back then, traffic safety was considered incidental to road construction. Contractors used kerosene lanterns (smudge pots) to protect their work area at night, and barricades were fashioned mostly from 2x4s and nails. In addition, reflective sheeting for barricades was very basic — the colors were black and white strips.

Maintaining Safety & High Standards Since Our Beginning

Today, traffic safety is a top priority when it comes to road construction. Safety-related signs and devices are now considered standard in the industry. These include barricades, drums, warning lites, signs, cones, arrow boards, and changeable message centers. Additionally, the engineer-grade sheeting from years past has been upgraded to high-intensity grade and fluorescent diamond-grade sheeting.
