History

Capone Iron Corporation - Family Owned and Operated

about-50s

1950's

In the mid 1950’s, Charles “Papa Charlie” Capone began fabricating ornamental iron products from the basement of his Winthrop, Massachusetts home.

1960's

Charlie moved his small operation to a one-car, corrugated metal garage on Spring Street in Everett, Massachusetts.  During these years, Charlie operated as Modern Iron Works servicing residential and commercial clients in the greater Boston and North Shore areas.

about-70s

1970's

As the demands for extended service territory and product line increased, Charlie expanded his shop area by renovating the old garage and constructing a small addition.  This allowed him to introduce miscellaneous metals and light iron steel fabrication.  During this decade, Charlie’s two older sons joined him in the business.  He changed the name of his company to Capone Iron Works, Inc. and by the close of the 1970’s he moved the company to a larger facility on Betty Street in Everett, Massachusetts.

about-80s

1980's

Capone Iron Works was fabricating and installing structural steel, bar joist, metal deck, ornamental, and miscellaneous metals for both the private and public sectors. Projects included schools, condominiums, warehouses, government buildings and hospitals. Over the course of this decade Charlie’s two younger sons also joined him in various roles within the business.

about-90s

1990's

The 1990’s brought a time for transition. As the economy struggled it was time for Capone Iron Works to restructure and rebuild as well. Close to retirement, Charlie eased out of the day to day business while his sons took on leadership roles under his guidance and the name of the company changed one final time to Capone Iron Corporation.

2000's

Expansion was on the mind once again!  With the ultimate goal to service all of the New England states and beyond, Capone Iron needed a much larger fabrication facility than the current Everett location. Nine acres of land was purchased in Rowley, Massachusetts and construction began on a 50,000 square foot steel fabrication plant.  On June 24, 2002 Capone Iron Corporation officially commenced its Rowley operations. 


2010's

In 2015, Capone Iron Corporation North Woods broke ground in Berlin, New Hampshire on a 15-acre piece of property that will allow for long range expansion plans.  Today our two plants work in tandem via a virtual technology environment in the fabrication of steel products.
