ROHN has been the trusted name of providing quality engineered utility structures since 1948. One important distinction of ROHN's manufacturing facility is that we have been certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction. This stamp of quality is present on all of our utility structures.
ROHN uses Power Line Systems' software coupled with ROHN-developed software for the design of tubular structures and foundations. This allows ROHN to optimize utility pole designs based on customer requirements, manufacturing efficiencies, and material availability. Preliminary calculation packages are sent to our customers for review with their bid packages. Fabrication and erection drawings are produced with AutoCAD.
ROHN's stringent Quality Assurance/Quality Control program begins when the materials are received at our plant, ensuring that all materials meet or exceed the design specifications. Components are inspected and verified throughout the manufacturing process to ensure that they are within engineering and manufacturing tolerances. All full penetration base plates and seam welds are verified with Ultrasonic Testing preformed in-house with our own certified inspectors.
ROHN's galvanizing facility is on-site. All structural steel is galvanized in accordance with the ASTM A123 Standard. The galvanizing kettle is 8-1/2 feet wide by 51 feet long. Galvanizing begins with selecting the right steel. The purity of the steel, the manufacturing process and chemical composition can all affect the ability of the zinc to bond with steel. Prior to galvanizing, the steel is immersed in a hot acid bath to strip away all traces of corrosion, oil, dirt and impurities. Finished goods are then inspected by QC and staged for shipment.
Because of ROHN's commitment to Customer Service, the Inside Sales Manger assigned to your utility structure project will work closely with you to assure your order is designed and built to the highest standards and delivered just as you ordered it. We understand the importance of on-time delivery and constantly strive to exceed your expectations. Our plant is centrally located in Peoria, Illinois, which allows for competitive freight costs.
