This list of barricade companies includes the names of companies that the City of Camarillo has prepared and additional names will be added to the list if other barricades companies contact the City and request to be added to the list. For other barricade companies wishing to be added to the list, please contact Georg Winkler at [email protected]

The City does not endorse any of these companies or guarantee the quality of their products or services and this list is only provided so businesses have the contact information for these barricade companies.
