DIS-TRAN Overhead Solutions was organized in 1965 to serve the growing distribution and transmission needs of the utility industry.  We manufacture and treat a complete line of Douglas Fir and Southern Yellow Pine distribution crossarms, ground molding, and transmission arms and assemblies.  The transmission products also include x-braces, vee-braces, and tension braces.

Our standard treatment is Pentachlorophenol, but we can offer any of the approved treatments that are accepted under the current AWPA guidelines.

DIS-TRAN Overhead Solutions is a limited liability company whose members consist of DIS-TRAN WP Holding, LLC, a Crest Industries company, and Columbia Vista Corporation.  Columbia Vista Corp, a saw mill and remanufacturing operation in Vancouver, WA is the world’s largest producer of Douglas Fir crossarm blanks.  The relationship with Columbia Vista Corp provides DIS-TRAN with unique scheduling opportunities for our raw material needs and assures us of having an uninterrupted supply especially during emergency situations when this capacity is invaluable.

Through Columbia Vista Corp our plant facilities have been FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.  COC# SW-COC-00244.  This certification insures our customers that DIS-TRAN’s products promote responsible stewardship of the world’s forests.

DIS-TRAN Overhead Solutions maintains sizable raw material inventories of both distribution and transmission materials enabling us to provide a prompt response to our customers’ needs.  Our total control of the manufacturing and treating process allows flexible scheduling and on time delivery.  The combined production in Vancouver, WA and Pineville, LA enables DIS-TRAN to service the Utility Market with capacity that is second to none.

We continue to service this industry one customer at a time and work to meet their needs every day.  Whether you are a long-term alliance partner, blanket contract customer or buying your arms as needed “one piece at a time,” we will work with the same passion to satisfy those needs.  We enjoy relationships today that were established in 1965 and every year thereafter.  It is our goal to continue to build on this great history as we move toward the future.
