Ensign Power Pedestals, a company with a large presence in storm-ravaged areas of New York and New Jersey, is offering special services to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

TDI Products, a Florida-based product development company that recently acquired the Ensign Power Pedestal line from Will-Burt Co., is supporting storm-damaged marinas through on-site damage assessments and rebuild kits for damaged or submerged pedestals, the company announced.

It is also offering the Ensign Express spare parts service in an effort to expedite the rebuilding process.

The damage assessments are provided at no charge and provide a written report for the condition of each pedestal, according to TDI Products president Tom Caldwell. They are on-site assessments by factory personnel who are experts on power and utility pedestals.

The spare parts service is a recently introduced standalone service, Caldwell said. The program offers very competitively priced spare parts and ensures that customers receive the right parts and that orders are shipped on the day the order is received.

“Ensign offers the highest quality, longest life and lowest cost of ownership of any pedestal in the market, and our storm assessments in the Northeast are proving that point,” Caldwell said in a statement. “Ensign Pedestals survived because they are constructed of 100 percent stainless steel that is ‘jitterbugged,’ then passivated, then powder-coated. This process, combined with a thick [approximately 5 mils] application of powder, provides the most durable and corrosion-resistant pedestal possible.”

For pedestals that require new parts, TDI offers the Ensign Express spare parts service: In-stock spare parts ship the same day when orders are placed by 2 p.m. (EST).

“With more than a thousand parts in stock, your order ships the day you need it, reducing down time and inventory costs,” Caldwell said in a statement.

Ensign representatives are traveling in the northeastern United States to assist marinas and will be at the International Marina & Boatyard Conference Jan. 30-Feb. 1 in Fort Lauderdale.
