Union Metal Industries Corp. makes quality, highly engineered steel structures for lighting, traffic control, signage, and mass transit.
We’re dedicated to making public areas safer, providing responsive service to our customers, and engineering the best product.
As one of the first and most innovative in the industry, Union Metal is a recognized leader in pole manufacturing. We produce a broad line, available in a range of finishes and mounting styles. We also offer a variety of add-ons and accessories.
Whatever your needs, Union Metal has the capabilities to engineer customized poles to meet them.
Union Metal has been in business since 1906. Our Nostalgia line uses some of the same designs we placed in towns across America more than 100 years ago. We’ve pioneered ideas like the tapered tubular pole (the monotube) that’s now an industry standard.
During the 1920s and '30s, more than 4,400 towns across America installed their very first electrical light poles – produced by Union Metal.
We also introduced the first (and longest) traffic mast arm pole, and, to this day, we’re the leading supplier for state DOT projects across the country.

Historically accurate designs meet modern engineering
While enhancements have been made for easier assembly and maintenance, we have taken care to maintain the historical accuracy of the design. Often a key feature in the design of main street communities and historic preservation districts, these poles create unique and enjoyable environments for:
