Where We’re Heading
As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, we have recognized that the
lighting and pole industry has changed substantially from simply supplying a product
to instead providing solutions. While we’ll still manufacture poles and LED lights,
more often we pair this with other solutions such as control systems, solar lighting,
specialty fabricated parts, battery charging and 5G. We have always prided ourselves
on being a flexible company to work with, one that is open to product, portfolio and
technology changes; and with increasing technology trends we find ourselves in front
of a great number of exciting opportunities. This adaptive frame of mind has resulted
in past investments including the expansion into LED technology, the addition of
testing equipment, and the development of KingCast Inc., an aluminum foundry which
allows us to create custom aluminum parts for almost any application, and we are
enthusiastic to continue with this mind-set for an intriguing future.
Our company is well positioned to take advantage of a variety of opportunities that will
present themselves. I encourage you to look at StressCrete Group as more than lights
and poles; instead as a partner that can provide you with product solutions.
– Mike Schwenger Jr., President and CEO
