Every steel story has its foundation, and for Eastern Metal Works it was a day in 1978, when Ray Weiner Sr. bolted a Miller Big 40 welder to the bed of a Ford pickup and set out to earn a name for himself through hard work, honesty and a passion for steel. Six years later, with two welders, a saw and a Bridgeport milling machine, EMW was officially born.
As one of a select few steel companies in the state of Connecticut to have earned an AISC Standard for Steel Building Structures Certification, EMW has come a long way since that first welding truck hit the road thirty-four years ago. Our facility houses over 12,000 square feet of design and production space, and our fabricating experts use industry advanced equipment in order to streamline production and cut costs. Our materials are delivered on time every time, and our experienced erection team is dedicated to installing any structural steel or miscellaneous metals project safely, efficiently and with regard to your unique project schedule. As we grow in size and scope we remain committed to the values of excellence and customer satisfaction that our company was founded on, while always looking forward to new challenges and partnerships.
