Serving the Needs of Our Customers Since 1923

Eberl Iron Works, Inc. celebrated a well deserved milestone as family, employees, friends, and special guests gathered to celebrate Eberl’s 100 Year Anniversary at The Twentieth Century Club of Buffalo. The night started with cocktails, appetizers and harp music as guests began to arrive. When all guests were checked in, the party was moved into the dining room where 3rd generation owners John Eberl and Nora Eberl, along with 2nd generation owner, George Eberl welcomed guests and gave brief speeches to kick off the celebration. A blessing was then read aloud before guests were treated to dinner and gentle dinner music.

“Celebrating this milestone tonight with our families, our colleagues, and our friends is very special to us. Yes, Eberl Iron Works has come a long way in 100 years. We now have five divisions, technologies, and products that the first generation maybe never knew would be possible. There a few things though that haven’t changed: the commitment to family, providing meaningful work for our workforce – our extended family – and our core values that include quality and community.”

– 3rd Generation Owner and CEO, John Eberl

To show their gratitude for Eberl Iron Works and recognize John and Nora for their hard work and dedication towards improving the company and the community, employees presented the owners with a 100 Year Anniversary sign that shows the 3 generations of owners, starting with the 1st generation, the “Three Amigos”, Frank, George and Martin, then the 2nd generation, Frank and George, and finally the 3rd generation, John and Nora.
