What to Do About Your Aging and Corroding Assets Is Not Always Clear
Utility leaders understand that their infrastructure is aging and corroding. Unfortunately, the best path for asset management has not always been clear for decision makers. Until now.
The Old Way:
The “Throw Away” Mentality Is Expensive, Unpredictable, and Dangerous
The old way of asset management is a “throw away mentality” and it is expensive, unpredictable, wasteful, and dangerous. Utilities are frustrated because the sheer number of aging assets in this country is simply too large to replace in a timely manner.
The average age of the infrastructure that delivers power to our business and homes is 40 years old now but ¼ are 50+ years old. Galvanized steel only provides effective corrosion resistance for 50-70 years.
6-10% of the infrastructure in North America is defective enough to fail today: from wood, steel and composite transmission lines, to lattice towers, light poles at national “Big Box” retailers, and everything in
Replacement or repairs -- after a failure occurs -- can cost ten times more than the cost of extending the life of your assets long before you face problems.

Let Exo pay attention to your infrastructure and extend the life of your assets today, before there is a failure tomorrow.
Explore ways Exo can help:
- Quality Assurance
Our team verifies the quality of your assets during all stages of fabrication with thorough in-plant quality control. Exo is experienced establishing quality assurance best practices that ensure greater structural strength and longevity for every asset you buy, create, or manage.
- Structural Inspection
Whether it’s an in-plant inspection during asset manufacturing, a field, ground based inspection with our full array of visual and nondestructive testing (NDT) methodologies, or an aerial inspection via man-baskets or drone/UAV, we are committed to asset protection. Our proprietary inspection software application allows Exo to deliver accurate, actionable inspection data every time.
- Field Service and Repair
Your structural assets inevitably deteriorate and/or age. They become a financial and potentially legal risk to your organization. To keep steel poles, towers, and other infrastructure assets reliable, you need a team ready for in-field service and repair. Exo has a full range of field repair, infrastructure asset upgrade, and structural strengthening services options under one roof.
