Welcome to the IWEA

Welcome to the Ironworker Employers Association of Western Pennsylvania (IWEA), an organization committed to furthering the Ironworking industry while promoting quality, safety and excellence.


We welcome all Ironworkers, Contractors, Owners, Developers and Association Members to our site and invite you to use it often as we add OSHA updates, project photographs, Contractor Bio's and Upcoming Project information, which is a special benefit to our Members. Our goal is to make this website a “one stop shop” that answers your questions and provides the contacts you need to find a contractor, a job or a bidding opportunity.


For any contractor or vendor interested in membership with IWEA, we invite you to learn more about the Association by clicking the Membership Tab above.


Please feel free to contact our office with any questions or information needed.

Thank you for visiting!
