Erie Iron Works story

Welcome to Erie Iron Works. Founded by Aaron Jarmolowicz, E.I.W. is located just off the shores of Lake Erie in Northwestern Pennsylvania. Our mission is to connect your past, present, and future into one of a kind pieces of vintage furniture.  We specialize in custom and repurposed vintage and vintage industrial furniture with a raw, style.  Many of our pieces are created from parts of the long lost industrial “machine age.”  Our vintage furniture will add a modern touch to your current home or work space.  We repurpose materials from the past that are built to last long into the future.

He has been in the iron and welding business for more than 20 years. His vision is to turn forgotten materials into pieces of art.

“Having been in this field for so long, I’ve walked past countless old carts, forged parts and forgotten machines that lay on the floors and in the corners of old shops and factories,” he says. “I often wondered whose hands had created and operated them. At E.I.W., we bring new life to these pieces by transforming them into beautiful vintage and vintage industrial residential and office furniture.”
