American Iron Inc. is a manufacturing company. Our company’s objective is to manufacture, using existing foundry practices, grey and ductile cast iron components for public works and highway use, based in the North East United States. The construction industry is finally looking at an upturn in its fortunes after the disastrous effects of the global financial crisis.

More houses, developments, road, bridges are all going to be built. This is where our company comes into play. We will supply the entire northeast with distributors we talked to.
