Formerly known as Lakeway Ironworks, Iriaquez Ironworks was founded in 2016. Though a young company in years of operation, we have over 80 years of experience in the steel industry. We specialize in bridgework, commercial, and residential ironwork; including, but not limited to, embeds, structural, rails, fencing, gates, stairs, and steel landscaping. We are equipped with a 4-acre property, a 10,000-square foot fabrication shop, and nine welding crews fully outfitted with the trucks and resources needed to successfully complete all aspects of a project’s steel requirements.

 

Iriaquez Ironworks was born of necessity. A larger steel company, running more than 40 multimillion-dollar projects simultaneously, hit constraints with their fabrication operations and needed another operation to fulfill their orders. Since that time, Iriaquez Ironworks has quickly grown from a fabrication shop into an ironworks company providing design, engineering, and installation needs. Iriaquez Ironworks can be the turnkey company you are looking for to complete all your steel projects, as well as, stainless, aluminum, and glass railing needs.

 

Iriaquez Ironworks is a dual-sided company consisting of fabrication and installation operations. Our fabrication team is made up of roughly ten employees, the installation consists of nine welding crews, and management is made up of six individuals who oversee both sides of the operation.

 

Iriaquez Ironworks employs D 1.1 & D 1.3 certified welders.
