Submitted by: Sharon M. Kouns


The Dayton Malleable Iron Company Plant located on south Third street is the largest industrial plant in the city of Ironton according to number of employes and annual payroll. The 700 workers are paid $3,000,000 annually.

Ironton residents first started the plant under the name of Ironton Malleable Iron Company but in 1916 it was acquired by the present owners.

The plant covers an area of 12 acres and produces malleable iron castings, mainly for the automobile industry. The casting produced at the local plant weigh from half a pound to 350 pounds and an annual production of 70,000 tons of castings is made. The Ironton plant is one of 100 similar plants in the United States.

Anthony Haswell, the president of the company today, is a son of John Haswell, first company president. Lawrence J. Gallagher is the present general manager.


Note: Today (2002) Dayton Malleable was known as Ironton Iron Inc. and is now closed and the old factory is torn down.
