Our High-Quality Poles Stand the Test of Time
Timber poles continue to dominate steel, concrete or composite poles in the marketplace. Koppers poles are treated to American Wood Preservers Association (AWPA) standards and exacting customer specifications. In addition, we understand that wood treatment is as much an art as a science. Realizing that each pole is a unique product of nature, the experts at Koppers have the knowledge to make on-the-fly adjustments and refinements to the treatment process that only comes from experience. You simply will not find higher quality poles made by more committed people.
