Light Pole Base

A Forte Company

What is Light Pole Base (LPB)?

Light Pole Base is a unique product that offers all of the advantages of precast, AND because of the patented adjustable anchor bolt system and four universal conduit pathways, it can be manufactured in advance, held in inventory, and made available to an installer when they call. Pre-engineered, with guidelines for when it is appropriate to use, LPB can generally accommodate light poles up to 30 feet in height, making it an attractive product offering for electrical and site contractors. With three distinct appearance options, and a host of value added features, LPB is changing the way the industry looks at precast light pole bases.

How long does it take to make a profit and how much can I expect to make?

Although various factors will impact how quickly you turn a profit and how much you earn, a typical LPB partner recoups their initial investment within the first year. Most licensees are able to achieve six-figure revenues within the first 12-months and expand from there.
