Knoxville, TN, USA
The Knoxville Utilities Board owns the West Hills Substation in Knoxville, TN. The West Hills Substation is one of 60 in the KUB Service Area. The KUB serves almost 200,000 customers in a service area of 688 square miles. Power makes up for 81% of the sales for KUB.
In early 2015 the substation needed a rush order of custom anchor bolts. Portland Bolt stocks the 90-degree bent anchor bolts, making them in house and utilizing our own in-house hot-dip galvanizing line. With the galvanizing in house, Portland Bolt has the ability to quality control each bolt to ensure proper hardware function. You can watch bolts get hot-dip galvanized here. The large bolts, 1” in diameter and 36” in length, are not a common stock item for most distributors. See what stock sizes Portland Bolt has here. Despite the distance, the ability to deliver the correct products in the time-frame necessary made Portland Bolt a competitive option for these bolts.
