Tie Rod Systems

The Fox River Dock Company is a coal distributor. The majority of their coal arrives for distribution by barge. In the past, barges had to be unloaded from deep water via a conveyor system or from a slop along an inlet because there was no existing dock space along the river bank.
Hitch, Inc. was hired to design a pier along the river expanding the existing facility and providing the needed dock space. The pier was designed as a double wall with high support to resist overturning.
Ed Gillen Company was awarded the contract and chose Williams 1-3/4" Diameter Epoxy Coated All-Thread Tie Rods. After placing the rods, the structure was backfilled with soil and gravel.

Main Reason They Chose Williams
According to Tom Miller of Ed Gillen Company, Williams was chosen because they were more economical than alternate systems.
