The origins of Orange County Ironworks are rooted in the Teutul family of Montgomery, New York. Back in 1973, Paul Teutul started Paul’s Welding with one pick-up truck and a welding machine. A few years later in 1986, Paul expanded his shop to a 7,000 square foot facility in Rock Tavern, New York, and rebranded the business as Orange County Iron. As the demand for miscellaneous iron and related services grew, Orange County Iron purchased an additional 10,000 square foot structural steel facility in New Windsor, New York in 1998. As business continued to expand, Paul soon realized having two locations 20 minutes apart made it difficult to maximize efficiency and communication.
In 2004, Paul’s son, Dan Teutul, restructured the services, efficiency, and overall operations of Orange County Iron and renamed the company as Orange County Ironworks, LLC. (OCI). In that same year, Dan also started a structural steel erection company, Gabriel Steel Erectors, Inc. (GSE). OCI and GSE work in tandem to design, fabricate, and erect all structural steel pieces – ultimately giving the sister companies a competitive advantage when biding projects.
In 2010, Dan Teutul purchased 25 acres in Montgomery, New York and built a 55,000 square foot structural steel fabrication shop to support the continued growth and expansion of OCI. Of the 55,000 square feet, 10,000 square feet of this space houses administrative and project management offices. Our latest project, The Heavy Bay building, is a 65,000 square ft. fabrication shop that was completed in the Spring of 2019 with the intent to expand OCI and GSE service capabilities.
Our mission: By combining tomorrow’s technology with an unparalleled work ethic and professional integrity, Orange County Ironworks is able to provide its clients with the best product and customer service in the industry.
