The HAPCO Name

Hapco has a long history dating to 1843. The parent corporation, Hubbard and Company, originated as a national manufacturer of forgings and stampings. The company was a major contributor to the emerging telephone and power industries of the late 19th century. Above all, Hubbard’s commitment to “offering products of the highest quality at ever-increasing service levels” established them as the leader in these growing fields.

In 1951, Hubbard established a new division, the Hubbard Aluminum Products Company. HAPCO offered its first line of aluminum lighting poles and brackets in August of that same year. The superior properties of aluminum poles were immediately embraced by the market. Subsequently, Hapco saw significant growth during these early years.

Hapco Aluminum Pole Manufacturing Plant

In 1958, Dyson-Kissner-Moran (DKM) acquired Hapco and moved the original Pittsburg, Pennsylvania facility to the present-day location in Abingdon, Virginia in 1962. Today, after over 50 years and multiple plant expansions, the skilled workforce continues to vigorously pursue the founder’s original commitment of “the highest quality” products in the lighting pole products industry.
