Cox Industries has long been concerned about our impact on our communities and the environment and that concern has been seen not only in product and service innovations but in our relentless research into safer and more efficient ways to produce our products. Involvement with Green Globes, Green Guard and EPA WasteWise programs, products receiving the Good House Keeping Seal and Energy Star Ratings and our six decade long commitment to purchase wood from well managed Pine Plantations (recently documented by SFI and FSC certifications) are just the surface of our sustainability initiative.

Cox was founded by W.B. and E.J. Cox as a residential product treating company. Famous for pioneering “Kiln Drying After Treatment” (KDAT), today the company serves 10,000s of customers around the world, with residential, industrial and custom product manufacturing. The company is in it’s third generation of family ownership.

Our Utility Poles are manufactured per ANSI 05.1 latest, in lengths from 20' through 75'and classes from 1 to 9 depending on the length. These sizes are readily available from inventory in Southern Yellow Pine. Longer lengths are also available based by custom order: CCA, CCA Emulsion Treated and Penta preservatives are all available from our treating plants. Our poles are supplied to domestic Investor Owned Utilities, Rural Electric Cooperatives and Municipals.
