Reason #2: Produced With Top Quality Materials & Personnel

How can you know that the products you are using on site are top quality? The only way to get a great product is through top quality production with the best equipment, materials, and personnel. With Pole Base, you can rest assured that your products are of the highest quality!

Pole Base forms are made in America with state of the art equipment and highly trained / experienced staff on the shop floor. The Pole Base production facility - located in Charlevoix, Michigan - has top of the line equipment including a laser for cutting steel, a press brake for bending steel, and a rolling press for precise diameters in steel.

Certified welders and a weld inspector piece the equipment together on the shop floor using laser grade steel (for better flatness, finish, and optimization). Since the form production is so precise, there are VERY tight seams, meaning concrete won’t be seeping through and causing flashing on the finished product.

Reason #3: Capable of Producing Many Products

This video features the versatility of the Pole Base forms from both a functional and aesthetic standpoint.


These forms can produce round foundational products in multiple diameters. Parts & pieces can be exchanged to add junction boxes, change conduit templates, accommodate almost any bolt configuration, and create unique products like taxiway bases for runway applications at airports.


By changing out the form jackets/doors, Pole Base can create products with different shapes and textures:

  • The Ledgestone texture works GREAT for unique park and commercial applications.
  • The Blank Square texture offers a more modern look for commercial applications
  • The Brickledge texture allows designers to match their site & structural applications with the same cultured stone or brick products that are used across the entire project, creating a cohesive architectural look across the site.
