“During the early 1900’s necessity was the mother of invention. ‘Consultant Engineer’ was not even listed in the phone book. A design engineering staff was unknown. When the power company, or utility company, or telephone company, had a construction ‘problem’ they had to lick it, and fast. Many times Mr. Kortick sat down with the utility construction men, hashed over their problems, and then burned the midnight oil until a solution was found and production could start. In those days, that was all part of the job. Many pole line hardware items used on the coast today were ‘born’ in the Kortick plant in just that way. Over the years many have been redesigned or otherwise improved to meet current load conditions or to adapt them to our more modern and economical.” -1959 Today, we do have engineers on staff but we still take pride in our ability to solve problems quickly. If the solution is a custom part, we get it to manufacturing and deliver it more quickly than anyone else.
