About Eberl Iron Works, Inc.

Serving the Needs of Our Customers Since 1923
1923 - Founded

EIW was founded in 1923 by brothers George and Frank Eberl. EIW began as a small welding shop which fabricated wrought iron railings, exterior fire escapes and miscellaneous iron.

Contained within EIW are five unique and distinct divisions, that meet our customers’ most challenging needs: Rooftop Support Systems (RTS), Traffic Safety Products (TSP), Unistrut Buffalo Supports (UBS), Metal Fabrication Services (MFS), and Stair Components & Systems (SCS).

2012 - Cousins Take Over

Ownership passed to our third generation on January 1, 2012, with cousins John Eberl as chief executive officer and Nora Eberl as chief financial officer.

Their talent and enthusiasm are proving invaluable as they pursue new strategies for growth, and new ideas for our valued customers.

2016 - Rooftop Division Relocates

Housed in the same building (right next door to the Eberl Family’s original residence) since its inception in 1923, EIW has expanded its warehouse three times, over the years, to account for growth and increased storage needs.

In 2016, the Rooftop Supports division was moved into a newly acquired building, right down the street from our headquarters, to pave the way for present and future growth.

Order are shipped, nationwide, right from our headquarters, in downtown Buffalo, NY.
