A Tradition of Innovation

Founded in 1944, Oregon Iron Works (OIW) is a pioneering force in the fabrication and manufacturing industries. The company began achieving success as a structural fabricator in the demanding hydroelectric, bridge and civil construction trades by applying modern manufacturing techniques to products that were typically fabricated using conventional methods. Today OIW continues this tradition of innovation for the marine, aerospace, nuclear, transit and renewable energy industries building varied products ranging from complex bridges to sophisticated military patrol craft in steel, stainless, aluminum, titanium or other exotic materials.

Unlike other fabricators, OIW continues its long tradition as an extremely innovative business that is constantly adapting and expanding its core expertise in order to meet customer needs and program requirements. In-house CNC capabilities include cutting, burning, shearing, milling, machining, turning, forming, rolling, painting and sophisticated inspection.  Our integrated machine shop houses one of the largest custom CNC floor mills on the West Coast.

OIW fabricates to the highest quality standards. Our customers receive reliability, predictability, performance and quality through their entire project’s fabrication schedule.  The result is outstanding finished product, from the material sourced, to the complete documentation.

This combination of experience and advanced equipment has resulted in a company that not only specializes in products for a specific industry, but can readily respond to new customer requirements and apply unique solutions across a variety of manufacturing and engineering disciplines. Experience our outstanding customer service.
