KUIP Timber Procurement Practices

Manufacturing quality poles and crossarms begins with harvesting only the finest wood, grown in accordance with proper timber management procedures, with stringent adherence to industry standards. KUIP sources wood from forests nationwide, working with multiple tree species depending upon the designated use of the pole and the length, class and framing requirements of our customers.
