Creative Pultrusions to Provide Fibreglass Distribution Poles

13 August 2010

Creative Pultrusions has been awarded a contract to supply fibreglass distribution poles to the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP).

The award, for $2.97 million, is for a term of one year with two optional one-year periods.

“We are pleased to once again be partnering with DWP in supplying fibreglass distribution poles to the Department” said Bob Guilliams, Technical Sales Manager for Creative Pultrusions’ Powertrusion Products Utility Division. “Southern California, in general, and the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, in particular, present a unique set of challenges for overhead distribution structures, including diverse temperatures, lightning, fire, corrosive coastal, and rugged and inaccessible terrain”, Guilliams said. The light weight and non-conductive nature of the fibreglass poles makes their installation and maintenance both easier and safer.

LADWP is the largest municipal utility in the United States, serving over four million residents. Throughout its system, LADWP maintains more than 300,000 power poles.
