Stella Jones Corporation is a leader in wood utility pole manufacturing, with multiple treating facilities and over 30 distribution yards across the United States and Canada. In 2017, Stella Jones identified an opportunity to support customers in Georgia, Florida and surrounding areas. We converted a railroad tie facility into a state-of-the-art pole manufacturing facility in Cordele, Georgia, capable of supplying Penta, CCA and CCA ET to existing and future customers.
In 2018, we began a partnership with Gresco Utility Supply to become their wood pole supplier to the cooperatives and municipalities over their entire Southeastern territory, where we have seven strategically located manufacturing, treating, and distribution facilities. In addition, we maintain a robust logistics group, including a fleet of company-owned trucks, to ensure timely deliveries and excellent response during storm restoration.
In 2018, after Hurricane Michael devastated parts of Florida and Georgia, Stella Jones in partnership with Gresco to provide over 12,000 poles to our affected customers, all the while maintaining uninterrupted service to those unaffected. When Hurricane Laura recently hit the Louisiana coast, our partnership was once again there to meet the challenge with a strong response. Our alliance aided in the communication and response time to those affected and continues to be unmatched in the industry.
When it’s time to purchase your wood poles, look to Gresco and Stella Jones. You can rely on us for peace of mind, with consistent service and uncompromising quality.
