WARNING - This article may get your hands dirty!
Sometimes you have to get your hands on something in order to make it successful. Utility Solutions has created a hands-on approach to research and development, manufacturing, and distribution and so far it's working.
Research and development is essentially "finding out if this idea will fly". Mike Nolte, President, speaks with lineman in the field almost every week who think they have the next big idea. Some of them do, and it demonstrates our philosophy of dealing directly with the end user. This has created a very successful culture of Lineman Driven that permeates throughout the entire company.
Our manufacturing philosophy is also direct and hands-on. Almost every product we offer comes from our Hickory, NC plant where we have invested heavily in the latest equipment allowing us to maintain high quality standards and low production times. But the equipment is not the defining measure of our abilities. It is the hands-on environment in production that really sets us apart. Our folks know these products end up in the hands of lineman, where a persons safety is on the line and
where our company is ultimately represented. Hand crafted tools and products, made in the USA by folks that care.
Distribution is where you come in. . . We are not a huge company, nor do we aspire to be, so we take a one-on-one approach to selling. You will find our products on demonstration trailers across the country where end users can touch and feel the products and see how they work. We have representatives and distributors worldwide who are familiar with our products and we display at many trade shows with hands-on exhibits, giving opportunities for YOUR hands to hold OUR products.
Our success has come to us one customer at a time. When was the last time you got your hands on our products?
We are Lineman Driven. Field Proven.™
