Prompted by several storms in 1988 and 1989 the founder of PoleSet, Inc., Bruce Livingood, wanted to create a better way to gain access into isolated pole locations using standard utility equipment mounted on a rough terrain carrier.  Poleset, Inc. operates as an electrical power line construction company with an emphasis in off-road environments.

PoleSet, Inc. began to play a larger role in the market by building turnkey power line projects and substations.  Services were expanded and additional equipment and personnel were added in an effort to increase the company’s presence in this market.  PoleSet, Inc. has grown from a company of three people to a company with nearly 35 employees.

In 2004, Bruce founded PoleSet Equipment, LLC. to build a new design of off-road machines after a search across the nation failed to find suitable equipment.  The Polesetter II was born.  Bruce has manufactured over a dozen units since 2004 and has leased them all over the United States.  Our specialized equipment allows access to challenging locations at any time of year, in any type of weather.  This unique equipment has continuously provided dependable cost effective off-road services to many of the top utilities and contractors in the country.


Today, PoleSet, Inc. and PoleSet Equipment, LLC. remain located in Western Pennsylvania, an area of the country where rough terrain is part of the job.  PoleSet, Inc. and PoleSet Equipment, LLC. continue to grow and to provide service to customers in the Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio tri-state area as well as customers needing reconstruction after storms across the country.  PoleSet, Inc. remains the premier off-road service provider in the country.
