GPGC Receives Approval for Quality Certification of Composite Utility Poles in East Africa

July 22 2019

Global PoleTrusion Group Corp.’s composite utility poles have been approved for certification by the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS). GPGC and their partner, Avalon Assure, applied for a Standardization Mark, a mandatory product certification for locally manufactured goods that ensures that they meet the KEBS’ quality standards. They have also applied for an Import Standardization Mark to certify that their raw materials also meet the required standards. The approval is subject to an inspection of GPGC’s manufacturing facility, for which construction is expected to begin in the last quarter of 2019.

Ramiro Guerrero, President and CEO of GPGC, added, “Our composite poles will be of great benefit to the region because they last longer and are more resistant to harsh environmental conditions than traditionally used wood and concrete poles. They are also extremely lightweight, which will enable us to easily transport and install them in remote locations.”

GPGC and Avalon Assure are currently in the process of finalizing a definitive agreement for the manufacturing, sales and export of composite utility poles in East Africa.
