Albert Bishop Chance founded what we know now as CHANCE in Centralia, Missouri in 1907. A.B. Chance and his father owned, operated, and maintained the Home Telephone Company. In 1912, an ice storm wiped out the telephone lines in Centralia, due partly to inadequate anchoring of poles. To reestablish the lines of communication, and anchor his poles as quickly as possible, A.B. Chance invented the first practical earth anchor, which could be installed in the frozen ground.
CHANCE anchors were engineered and developed into CHANCE helical piles, the first foundation stabilization system created for remedial repair. The innovation originally developed to save downed utility poles, today has far-reaching applications including new construction, foundation repair, wall retention, gas & pipeline, and many more.
