      What clients say

      "As a Transmission Superintendent at SDG&E, I used to spend a great deal of time digging up anchors to see if they were degrading. Now that we have switched to Stainless Steel Anchors for our guy wires, I don’t even have to worry about them anymore!"

      "Working with VAF Industries is easy and the people are nice and very helpful. It is nice to make suggestions on how they can improve their product and they listen and try it out and then they let you know if it works or not and they always explain their findings in a way that all can understand."

      About Us

      VAF Industries is a woman owned (WBE#15060226) family business that was founded in 2011 with the vision of producing innovative products that are field tested, third party certified and affordable for the utility industry.

      We got our start in the utility industry as a subcontractor working for a large Southern California Power company where we were fortunate enough to work in the field with the line crews. This gave us special insight into some of the issues and needs that they were dealing with on a daily basis. As an example, one of the first problems we found they were having was the constant replacement of guy wire anchors due to corrosion. In an effort to solve this problem, we designed a solid Stainless Steel Anchor system. Our Stainless Steel system protects the anchor (and Rod) from virtually all soil conditions and the circular base plate provides over 20% more surface area than the standard “cross plate” design. This is now the standard for all transmission anchors installed by this utility company.
