Valmont Site Pro 1 is a Valmont owned Company that specializes in communications components.
The cellular industry realized fast growth in the 1990’s, and as service moved to more rural areas more demand was generated for self-supporting and guyed towers. To fill out this segment of the product line, in 1995 Valmont acquired Microflect Company, a Salem, OR manufacturer of lattice towers and site components. In 2001 they added Pirod, a Plymouth, IN manufacturer of solid rod towers and site components.
As the focus of the cellular/PCS business moved from raw land sites to buildings and collocation, the demand for site components increased. To fill this need and to provide a more nationwide presence, in 2008 Valmont acquired Site Pro 1, a leading manufacturer of wireless site components, with warehouses in NY, GA, and CA. Microflect and Pirod’s component businesses were rolled into Site Pro 1. In 2011 Valmont Site Pro 1 opened a sixth warehouse location in Dallas, TX, allowing us to now cover 96% of the US with next-day or second-day service.
