Pexco Introduces Line of Utility Markers

TACOMA, Wash. (June 24, 2010) – Pexco, a leading plastics extruder, has introduced a line of marker products designed specifically for utilities. These durable, highly visible markers are based on Pexco's years of engineering and production experience in designing and manufacturing quality products for the traffic safety, aerospace and other industries.

Pexco utility marker products include:

Guy markers/guards provide durable, high-impact and economical protections for exposed utility pole guy wires, dead end fittings and anchor rods. Units feature an integral snap for easy installation. Made from polyethylene with UV inhibitors, they are offered in yellow, red and gray with additional colors and/or reflective tape available.


Snow poles mark culverts, drains, junction boxes, fire hydrants and other potential obstacles that may be obscured by piled snow. These poles increase operator safety and reduce replacement costs by effectively indentifying hazards. An exclusive lightweight honeycomb cross-section provides greater strength and durability. Standard UV-stabilized colors include orange, yellow, red, blue, fluorescent orange and fluorescent yellow. Reflective sheeting can be added for greater visibility


Ground wire molding offers strong, long-lasting and corrosion-resistant protection of exposed ground wire over wide temperature ranges. Made from PVC, these markers feature low maintenance, ease of handling and low cost. Standard colors include gray and black with additional colors available.


Utility markers/service line markers provide high visibility for easy identification of underground utility lines. Designed for strength, flexibility and durability, they are available in standard and special colors and options such as reflective sheeting, message decals, and custom printing.
Pexco utility products are manufactured in Tacoma, Wash., Athol, Mass., and Monterrey, Mex., and are available throughout North America.
