Jameson Rodders

In September 2021, Trenchless Equipment announced a distribution agreement with Jameson Tools. Jameson has been a leading provider of telecommunication cable installation and maintenance tools for professional installers across the United States and internationally since introducing fiberglass poles to the telecom industry in 1956.

Jameson Tools have been keeping pace with the progress and growth in the underground industry. In 1980, Jameson developed the first continuous core fiberglass duct rodder manufactured in the U.S. This lead to the foundation of the industry’s most comprehensive line of duct rodders, fiberglass fish tapes, fish rods, and traceable duct rodders.

Trenchless Equipment will offer both the regular conduit duct rodders and the traceable duct rodders in various sizes.
