McWane Poles

Our patented manufacturing process allows McWane ductile iron poles to offer engineered strength, dimensional consistency, and natural corrosion resistance. Our poles are impervious to rot, insects, woodpeckers, and are highly fire resistant. Thanks to their lighter weight, McWane ductile iron poles are also less expensive to transport and install. On top of these benefits, we offer a truly GREEN product that is made from recycled material and 100 percent recyclable. All of this adds up to McWane ductile iron poles being the best overall value in the utility pole market. Don’t just take our word for it. Since 2008, more than 150 utilities in 25 states have bought into the benefits of ductile iron poles. We have been included in RUS, FEMA, and numerous states DOT funded projects. These utilities see that the advantages of McWane ductile iron poles.


  • LOW MAINTENANCE — McWane ductile iron poles are completely resistant to rot, insects, and woodpeckers, so they require less maintenance than other poles.
  • LOWER LIFE CYCLE COST — With a 75 to 100-year expected service life and low maintenance requirement, McWane Poles have a lower life cycle cost than other poles.
  • ENGINEERED CONSISTENCY — McWane Poles are engineered and manufactured for consistent strength and appearance, and they will not shrink or warp over time.
  • SIMPLE INSTALLATION — McWane Poles weigh much less than wood and concrete poles and are much easier to drill than steel, concrete, and fiberglass.
  • LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT — McWane Poles are made of over 90 percent recycled material and are 100 percent recyclable, and they do not leach harmful chemicals.
