Utility Steel Pole and Tower Contractors: How to Choose the Right Partner

May 27, 2020

Across all industries, electric power is vital for the daily operations of our society. If the lights went out tomorrow, the world would be a very different place.

Because of this, utility companies place extreme importance on the reliability and resiliency of their electric transmission and distribution networks. Equal importance is placed on the quality of their partners who help inspect and maintain these critical assets.  Here is what you need to know about hiring the right contractor.

Knowledge and Experience

When it comes to the structural inspection and maintenance of steel poles and towers, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution that will properly ensure the structural integrity of your asset.  You need a resource that has the vast and in-depth knowledge of how utility transmission towers are designed, fabricated, and maintained to complement field services and repair expertise.

As our website states, the technicians at Exo  have more than “100 years of combined professional experience in the design, manufacturing, and inspection of power delivery structures, Exo provides actionable guidance and time-tested results so that your assets perform for years to come.” You can be sure that you are in good hands with a professional from Exo Inc.

Availability

The immediacy of your need is also something you will want to take into consideration. If the field service and repair you require is an emergency, you can’t afford to waste time searching for the low cost partner.  You must focus on the most qualified and available options to ensure the restoration and continued reliability of your assets.

At Exo, our inspectors do more than just troubleshoot when conducting evaluations. Based on our strategic life cycle management approach to field service, Ex- Tend, our contractors care for your assets and your future.

Our goal is to help you ensure that the equipment you use now will be viable for the future and save you time and money in the long run.

Cost

When the chips are down, affordability can often be the deciding factor in who you hire as a utility pole contractor. That being said, the cheapest option is certainly not always the best option.  You have probably heard the old adage, “Pay me now or pay me later….but you will pay.”  When it comes to structural inspection and maintenance, utility asset owners cannot afford to sacrifice quality over quantity.

With a company of integrity like Exo, we will work to ensure that you are receiving the highest quality services without breaking the bank. Our trusted technicians are happy to help you protect the long-term value of your assets and save you money holistically.

Finding a new contractor is a great act of trust that requires an investment of time and resources. Don’t trust just anyone with this lofty task. At Exo, we are unmatched in our thorough and innovative practices, ensuring the preservation of assets and return on investments in a wide range of fields.
