Unprecedented Incentive for Utilities to Upgrade Grid Support Structures
CALGARY, April 14 /CNW/ - Resin Systems Inc. ("RS") (RS - TSX), a
technology innovator and manufacturer of advanced composite products for
infrastructure markets, announced today that its RStandard(TM) modular
composite poles will now feature a 41-year warranty and a lifetime guarantee.
In the unlikely event that a utility customer discovers a manufacturing
defect with an RStandard pole, the RS warranty will provide for a replacement
pole at no additional charge if the defect is reported and verified within 41
years of the date of its delivery to the customer.
Under the new lifetime guarantee, RS will replace any pole that fails as
a result of the physical loads imposed by ice, snow, wind, or lightning
"With a 41-year warranty against manufacturer defects and a lifetime
guarantee against failure, we are providing the electric power delivery
industry the new high-strength, long lasting grid support structures they have
wanted for years and with virtually no risk," stated Paul Giannelia, president
and chief executive officer of RS. "Since our poles are non-corrosive,
relatively maintenance free, impervious to pests, lightweight, fire resistant,
and environmentally benign, they provide utilities with the lowest cost of
ownership. RStandard poles are the smart and sustainable choice for supporting
the new smart grids."
RS is a technology innovator that develops advanced composite material
products for infrastructure markets. The composite products manufactured using
the Company's proprietary resins and processes are typically lighter, more
durable and longer-lasting than competing products made from the traditional
building blocks of wood, steel or concrete.
RS's flagship product is its award-winning RStandard(TM) composite pole.
The pole is engineered to deliver the lowest cost of ownership, and is used as
transmission and distribution poles to carry electric grids and as
communication towers for various uses including wireless networks and
microwave communications systems.
