Moran Iron Works Joins Pure Michigan Business Connect


For Immediate Release – June 17, 2013 Onaway, Michigan: Moran Iron Works (MIW) has a long history of commitment to Michigan, and most specifically Northeast Michigan, through its purchasing policy of “buy and use local services when possible”. As a Pure Michigan Business Connect partner with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, there is additional opportunity for Moran Iron Works to continue its dedication to enrich the lives of our state’s citizens and boost Michigan companies.

Pure Michigan Business Connect is an MEDC initiative connecting in-state companies to business resources, including large buyers such as MIW. Companies can find new ways to raise capital; get access to professional business services at little or no cost; connect with each other through a new business-to-business network; and identify potential supplier opportunities, while developing resources to improve their supply chains.

“Moran Iron Works is a great example of how Pure Michigan Business Connect provides a multi-faceted network of opportunities for Michigan businesses,” said MEDC President and CEO Michael A. Finney. ““We are pleased to welcome Moran to the growing roster of companies lending their expertise to Pure Michigan Business Connect.”

Moran Iron Works spent approximately $6 million last year, in-state, on products ranging from business cards to steel products. Recent examples include our largest purchase order for steel products from ALRO Steel, a Jackson, Michigan company.


“We are impressed with the level of impact that the PMBC program has had on our growth. The direct result has been more jobs and opportunities for one of the largest workforces in Northeast Michigan, states Tom Moran, Moran Iron Works President and CEO. “We are committed to growth and investment in Michigan. We all benefit and build better networks with the PMBC program and in turn, we are able to create better places to work and live for the people in Northeast Michigan.”

MIW is a national leader in custom steel fabrication for the power industry. The company has its corporate headquarters and largest manufacturing facility in Onaway, Michigan and also operates a manufacturing facility in Cheboygan, Michigan and a port and fabrication facility in Rogers City, Michigan.
