3 Things That Moved Us in 2016 
What a difference a year makes. 2016 moved us in a direction we never dreamed possible. With new products, new deployments, new team members, and new owners, the  past year was a transformative one for McCain. 

As we take a moment to look back at three of the top things that moved us in 2016, we are thrilled about the possibilities that come with moving forward in 2017. 

Our Smallest Cabinet Yet
The Backpack Cabinet

We're always striving to design new products and improve upon existing ones. This year we had great success in both those areas with the launch of the Backpack Cabinet

An addition to our beloved ATC Cabinet Series, the Backpack Cabinet proves that you don't need a bulky cabinet to have a smart intersection. The Backpack Cabinet offers the advanced safety features and technology common to all ATC cabinets in one of the most compact designs available. 

The cabinet debuted at the 2016 IMSA Forum and Expo where we simultaneously kicked-off the Backpack Cabinet Giveaway which generated entries across 30 states and 5 Canadian provinces. We would like to give a huge shout out to the City of Phoenix, winners of a Backpack Cabinet and GRIDSMART system - congratulations!

Noteworthy Deployments
Our ATC Cabinet series continues to make waves through the industry with several notable deployments this year, including:
Deployed for advanced traffic research at its national center.
LA County
Deployed the first low-voltage 
ATC Cabinet.

Deployed the industry's first low-voltage 32-channel cabinet. 
Team McCain Distribution Network
The 2016 Distributor Meeting
This year, our two-day distributor meeting was the biggest McCain-hosted event yet! Bringing 50 of our top distribution partners together in San Diego to collaborate on improving what McCain is doing for the industry and our customers. 

Serving customers across the nation, our distribution network is made up of over 20 partner companies that are dedicated to providing the industry's best transportation solutions. 

I'm moved by the increasing passion our distributors have for enhancing mobility and finding the best solutions the industry can offer - their passion for traffic solutions is unreal.

Our New SWARCO Family
McCain Has New Owners

In August, McCain was acquired by Austrian-based traffic  technology group, SWARCO

Well, it has been over three months and we can confidently say we are not the same company  we were before, we're better! 

McCain is still a thriving industry-leader, but  now we've a dded world-renowned SWARCO technology, like full-color overhead and arterial variable message signs to our already diverse portfolio of cabinets, controllers, and software

Best of all, joining the family of SWARCO companies only further accelerates our efforts to better serve you.
A Final Thought from 2016
Happy Holidays

Thank you to all the partners, employees, and community of followers (psst...that's you!) that moved us in 2016 and made it a year to remember. 

Wishing you peace and joy this holiday season and throughout the new year. 
-Team McCain
