Utility poles are a common feature of our everyday landscape. They support the wires that bring electricity from the power company to our homes and enable our growing network of telephones, televisions, and computers. They are manufactured in various forms as PSCC poles, RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) poles and Spun poles. They are usually manufactured as per the standard specifications of the customer. MPIL´s main business focus lies in manufacturing of PSCC poles. They are basically cement concrete poles which are pre-stressed using steel wires to provide more structural strength. They are manufactured as per standard REC specifications followed by various customer organizations implementing Rural Electrification programs launched by various state government controlled electricity boards.Our Products are….• 8.0M/140Kg• 8.0M/200Kg• 8.5M/180Kg• 8.5M/200Kg• 9.0M/140Kg• 9.0M/200Kg• 9.0M/300Kg• 9.0M/400Kg• 9.5M/300Kg• 9.5M/400Kg• 11.0M/365KgSpun Poles & PilesManchukonda Prakasham Industries India Private Limited, a market leader in pre-stressed cement concrete flat poles in India, is planning to diversify into pre-stressed cement concrete spun pole/pile business by setting up a most advanced and state-of-the-art spun pole/pile manufacturing unit near Hyderabad, India. The project will be commissioned on fast track basis and is expected to be operational during the current calendar year 2013. Unlike the pre-stressed cement concrete flat poles and wooden poles, the spun poles have superior strength and appearance. The increase in strength is achieved through centrifugal spinning with those of pre-stressing and high strength concrete in the manufacturing process. The advanced centrifugal spinning ensures the concrete is compacted into a hard and dense material exhibiting superior strength and excellent finish.The company will be focusing primarily on the following few application segments to market spun poles:Power Segment:• Transmission & Distribution Infrastructure (Power transmission & distribution poles)• Township Lighting (Street/High-mast lighting & Sports/Yard lighting poles)• Traction Infrastructure (Electric train traction poles)Telecom Segment:• Telecom Tower (Telecom poles)And for spun piles, following are some of the application segments to be of immediate business focus:• Foundation Pile (Building/Port/River Structures, Bridges, Retaining Walls)• Columns (Building Structures, Bridge Piers)The company is actively looking forward to procure high quality spun pole production machinery and equipments from reputed global vendors for setting up its manufacturing plant to release high quality spun poles or piles into the market at the earliest.QUALITYMPIL has strived for excellence and got the ISO 9001 Certification by QMS.MPIL’s Quality Policy states: Manchukonda Prakasham & Co.(now MPIL), is one of the largest manufacturers of Pre-Stressed Cement Concrete (PSCC) poles in India with national and international standards quality and timely delivery to the total customer satisfaction and always stood first in the quality race.
