Water Tower Cell Site Concealment

Water Tower Cell Site Concealment

Several years ago Peabody Engineering delivered two amazing Water Tower Cell Site Concealments to the Piedras Blancas Light Station in San Simeon, California. The PBLSA requested that Peabody create a replica of the original wooden water tower that once stood at the light station which was originally constructed in 1908.

The contractor hired to build the water tower used recycled redwood to construct the two-tiered tower structure. On the first platform they placed the smaller of the two fiberglass water tanks – 9’ tall x 9’ in diameter with an open top – and then continued constructing the tower. When the upper platform was finished, they placed the larger fiberglass water tank on top – 12’ tall x 12’6” in diameter with a fiberglass cover designed to look like an old metal tank lid.

Since the tower construction and tank installation has been completed, we have visited the PBLS and even WE are in awe of how realistic these two replica tanks turned out! We are proud of the design and fabrication of these two tanks and so is our customer.

Next time you’re looking for great weekend getaway, take a trip up the coast and visit this historical location.

What’s So Great About Christmas?

By | General


Our office will be closed:
Christmas Hours: Dec 24th and 25th, 2018
New Years Hours: Dec 31, 2018 and Jan 1, 2019

We are rapidly winding up year 2018 and we continue to strive, grow and manufacture the best quality of Peabody Tanks and Tank Related Products. Remember last year when we introduced you to our 2 new Rotational Molding Machines? Since then we have dramatically increased production and because we have the larger Molding Machine (that would be the machine we call Alpha) we are able to increase the sizes of several of our Peabody Tanks.

The strength of who and what we do is based on a foundation of you our customers of what your wants and needs are. We will continue to produce exceptional Peabody Products and develop new products based on your feedback. Whether you call us, or email us or see us at a Tradeshow, we want to know how you use our Peabody Tanks and as a person in your industry what modifications or enhancements you think would be a benefit to our tanks.


So What’s so great about Christmas anyway?

Somewhere, our society has lost the focus of what Christmas is supposed to be celebrating. It is the celebration of a very important birthday, namely God’s only son, Jesus Christ. He was the greatest gift ever to all of mankind.

Santa Claus is seemingly omnipresent wherever you go, Christmas music is on the radio and your inbox is overflowing with cyber deals and doorbuster offers at all the retailers. Many of you already have hung your lights, bought and trimmed your tree, hung your stockings and chances are, there’s a quart of Egg Nog in the fridge.

The kids are looking forward to 2 or 3 weeks off for “Winter Break” and plans for visiting relatives are set. You’re hoping that your Christmas Bonus is large enough to cover all of the things you’ve already charged on the credit card and you’re looking forward to a couple of long and restful weekends of football, family and comfort food…..Read the full Peabody Engineering Christmas Letter by clicking here.

Thanksgiving: A Time to Reflect and Renew

By | General

Thanksgiving 2018 – We Hope You Enjoy This Years Thanksgiving Letter.

Our office will be closed on Nov 22nd and 23rd, 2018.

Well, it’s almost Thanksgiving 2018. The official start of the Holiday Season. Retail Shopping Centers and Warehouse discount stores already have Christmas decorations on display. Amazon is flooding our inboxes with shopping ideas. Our relatives are making plans for family gatherings, making airline reservations and dusting off the decorations that will transform our homes into wonderous cathedrals of holiday merriment.

We just finished with Halloween, changed our clocks and voted in what may prove to be one of the most contentious elections in our lifetime. America is deeply divided as self-righteousness, intolerance and narcissism has rampantly gone out of control. Gone are the days of respectful disagreement and forbearance of differing opinions. It seems that there is no longer room for compromise and there is no middle ground. On the one hand is traditional American values, pursuit of one’s own concept of the American Dream, building individual success, time with family and pursuit of your passions with as little interference from government and outside interference as possible. On the other hand, is a coalition of fragmented special interest groups with nothing more in common with each other than a swarm mentality that is willing to compromise everything else to get the one thing important to them, whatever that one thing is.

America is a land that has been Blessed by God. It has positively impacted the world in ways that no other civilization has in the history of the world. The grit, fortitude, ingenuity, determination, synergy, compassion, generosity and courage of this Great Nation has transformed the world. America is the only place in the world where we acknowledge that Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are God-Given inalienable rights. This has created an environment that produced a Nation of people who fought and won 2 World Wars that saved the entire world twice. It created a culture of innovation that sparked the industrial revolution, put man on the moon, created high technology, revolutionized modern medicine, engineering, and continues to lead the world in innovation in every area.

Operation Christmas Child 2018

By | General

It is with great joy and big hearts that Peabody Team Members participated in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. Peabody Engineering gladly participates to help support this awesome cause for Samaritan’s Purse. Going to the stores to pick out gifts for the children is probably half the fun of this project. Getting together to put the Shoe Boxes together is another part of this project we enjoy. We set ourselves a goal this year and not only did we make the goal we went over the goal. With lots of love we send these Shoeboxes out into the world so that it may be a blessing to a child who might not otherwise have anything for Christmas. “Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15.

Art Avila
Art does a lot of working running Charlie by himself back there. I am sure its not easy being in the back coroner in that heat, but I never hear him complain. He is always very friendly and makes an effort to say hi to me and ask me how I’m doing.

Art G.E.M. Winner August 2018Art Avila
Art works well with others and enjoys teaching our temps a new trade. He is a happy person which makes a good working environment. Art is always friendly and will treat you with respect.

Jesse Aramburo
Will help in any department at any time. Always looking for more to do. Any time or any department he will always do a great job.

Jesse Aramburo
He is a good worker.

Jesse Aramburo
Jesse was a temp before he started full time at Peabody Engineering. You could tell right from the start that he was a good fit with the Team. He just has the best attitude and loves to work here at Peabody.

When Jesse would see new temps here he would tell them, “show up on time, do a good job, this is a great place to work”. He always encourages everyone. Such a positive attitude.

One day Jesse told me that Peabody had done more for him in 2 months than previous employers had done for him in 30 years. WHAT a compliment.

Jesse is true to his word. If asked he will tell you the truth and wants to help Peabody be the best it can be every day. He also likes to mentor and train new employees. This is why I wanted to nominate a man that invests into other Team members.

What a blessing he is to have at Peabody Engineering.

Here are some of the comments we received on him from his fellow Team Members for G.E.M. Going the Extra Mile:

Jorge Arroyos
I think Jorge did a good job handling things when Armando was gone. There were even a few things he helped me with. He’s always very friendly towards me which makes working with him easy.

Jorge Arroyos
Jorge stepped up in Armando’s absence and helped keep Production running. Jorge is stretched in a lot of directions and has adapted well. He brings a sense of Humor to tough situations, he keeps a balance between getting the job done and ensuring it is done right.

Jorge G.E.M. Winner June 2018Jorge Arroyos
Besides his daily duties, Jorge is allover the warehouse helping other departments. Jorge is definitely a great example of a leader. During Armando’s absence Jorge continued to push the work agenda through no matter what challenges are thrown at him he seems to get the job done.

Jorge Arroyos
Without hesitation Jorge is always willing and able to step in and lend a helping hand. His eagerness in wanting to help you succeed in your job is a testament to his character. He works hard, he keeps projects moving forward, he provides solutions and always with a twinkle in his eye he has never let me down in helping with whatever challenge I need help with.
