Segments Engineered Support Structures This segment consists of the manufacture and distribution of engineered metal and composite structures and components for lighting and traffic, wireless communication, and roadway safety worldwide. The company manufactures steel, aluminum, and composite poles and structures to which lighting and traffic control fixtures are attached for a range of outdoor lighting applications, such as streets, highways, parking lots, sports stadiums and commercial and residential developments. In Europe, The company offers decorative lighting poles. The company is leveraging this expertise to expand its decorative product sales in North America and China. This product line also includes roadway safety systems, including guard rail barrier systems, wire rope safety barriers, crash attenuation barriers and other products designed to redirect vehicles when off course and to prevent collisions between vehicles. Highway safety systems are also designed and engineered to absorb collisions and reduce roadway fatalities and injury. The company also manufactures and distributes a range of structures (poles and towers) and components serving the wireless communication market. A wireless communication cell site mainly consists of a steel pole or tower, shelter (enclosure where the radio equipment is located), antennas (devices that receive and transmit data and voice information to and from wireless communication devices) and components (items that are used to mount antennas to the structure and to connect cabling and other parts from the antennas to the shelter). Markets: The key markets for the company’s lighting, traffic and roadway safety products are the transportation and commercial lighting markets and public roadway building and improvement. The transportation market includes street and highway lighting and traffic control, much of which is driven by government spending programs.

The company manufactures steel and concrete pole structures for electrical transmission, substation and distribution applications. The company’s products help move electrical power from where it is produced to where it is used. The company produces tapered steel and pre-stressed concrete poles for high-voltage transmission lines, substations (which transfer high-voltage electricity to low-voltage transmission) and electrical distribution (which carry electricity from the substation to the end-user). In addition, the company produces hybrid structures, which are structures with a concrete base section and steel upper sections. Markets: The company’s sales in this segment are mainly in North America. Distribution Methods: Products are normally sold through commissioned sales agents or sold directly to electrical utilities. Energy and Mining This segment, all outside of the United States, consists of the manufacture of access systems applications, forged steel grinding media, on and off sh
