On February 2, 2017 CMS Utility Services, Inc. completed the installation of (26) 16-16-2 Pole Racks for the City of Monroe, North Carolina. This project was very interesting since the contract for the Pole Racks was signed 5 years ago. The City of Monroe ran into problems with soil contamination on the Pole Yard site and have to abate the problem and get approval from the EAP to proceed with the project.
We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with the great people at the City of Monroe and hope they have great success with there new Pole Racks and Pole Yard.
We received a great comment from LaDell Gardner, the yard manager for the City of Monroe:
"We received the and submitted our first PO in Feb. 2012. But due to state regulations we had to cancel. Your company had already proceeded with the contract, and let us know that you had. Your company checked in from time to time about the progress, but you were never pushy or unprofessional in any way. So for 5 years you had your money tied up in material you didn't need and couldn't use elsewhere and you were nothing but kind. Your staff arrived as planned and installed with nothing but professionalism. We had some last minute changes that were handled in the most professional manner and we look forward to using these racks. So far we haven't placed but a few of the fiberglass poles, the true positive sign is when we get all the dividers (last minute change) and place the wood poles so that stock can be rotated. We look forward to using your system. Thank you."
