Scotchman Ironworkers Across the Globe: From Philip to the Philippines


We are proud to be an American manufacturer, but we’ve always been export-minded. In fact, in 1981, Scotchman Industries was granted the President’s “E” Certificate for Exports by the Secretary of Commerce for excellence in increased exporting of products.

Today, we continue to export ironworkers, cold saws, and other metal fabrication products to many countries around the world as well as domestically.

Our complete line of 13 different hydraulic ironworkers, ranging in capacities from 45 to 150 tons, are available in three distinct styles: component tool table design, fully integrated (European-style), and dual operator. We’re confident we have the right Ironworker for unique metal fabrication needs no matter where you are in the world.
