Founded by Don Doty and Patrick Moore, Stainless/Doty Moore has helped pioneer the construction, installation and maintenance of tall towers for the last 18 years. This experience is a powerful advantage in successful completion of large-scale, complex projects such as broadcast towers. As a founding member of the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE), Stainless/Doty Moore helped establish many of the safety protocols and standards in use today. Doty Moore has employed more tall tower crews in the United States than any other company. We build the tallest structures in the world under the most difficult conditions imaginable.
