Electric pole is "an improvement to real property" for purposes of Maryland's statute of repose

In Pippin v. Reilly Industries, Inc., the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam opinion for a panel including Chief Judge Wilkins, Judge Motz, and Judge C. Arlen Beam from the Eighth Circuit affirmed the trial court's ruling that an electric pole was an improvement to real property within the meaning of Maryland's statute of repose, which has language similar to Va. Code § 8.01-250.
