1835 was a year notable for some significant firsts and a number of great beginnings:

  • Andrew Jackson survived the first assassination attempt on a US President

  • Samuel Colt produced a revolver that would bear his name

  • Edgar Allen Poe published his first story

  • Legendary industrialist Andrew Carnegie was born in this year as was Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain

  • Also significant in 1835: Munroe, Inc. was founded and thus began a 174-year (and counting) success story

Having had only three owners since its founding, Munroe Inc. has always been a steady and reliable source for quality products and attentive customer service.

As the only domestic OEM hood fabricator, Munroe has served all of the major steel mills in the United States and is the leading provider of quality BOF hood components to customers throughout North America.

In 2007, Munroe, Inc. further solidified its position as a cost-competitive, valued-added source when it was purchased by Munroe Holdings, a Woodings Industrial Corporation affiliate.

Woodings, founded in 1872, is an international leader in the manufacture of metals industry equipment, and is the oldest continuous family-operated business in the steel industry in North America.

Together, Munroe, Inc., Woodings and affiliated companies Progressive Power Technologies and Advanced Refractory Technologies form a powerhouse of capabilities.
