WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island company that makes electronic highway signs is expanding and moving into a new manufacturing plant in Warwick.

Philippe Perut, president of Smithfield-based SESA tells the Providence Journal his company also plans to expand its workforce.

SESA makes signs, some of them solar-powered, which use Bluetooth and other technologies to pass on real-time information to motorists, such as traffic alerts, weather advisories and travel times to various locations.

Most of its clients are state highway departments.

The company, which opened in 1986, will be moving into a 15,000-square-foot building in the east end of Warwick. Perut says the move will give the company easier access to T.F. Green Airport and Interstates 95 and 295.
