Team 5534 - The Onabots

Onaway High School FIRST Robotics Team

Moran Iron Works sponsors FRC Team 5534 – The Onabots from Onaway High School

Unfortunately, the Onabots did not qualify for the world championship this year. However, this was the best season the team has had thus far. They finished the year ranked 148 out of 508 in the state of Michigan. They were able to compete at the Michigan State Championship. We are very proud of all the hard work the students and mentors put in to get that far. Way to go Onabots!!

Good Luck Onabots!



4th of July Parade

July 4th

Every year, there is talk around town about what creation Moran Iron Works has made for the annual 4th of July parade – known as the “Best 4th in The North.” As one of the last floats to stroll down the streets of Onaway, the speculation flourishes.

The Grand Parade starts at Noon and travels through downtown Onaway.  Keep an eye out for the Moran Iron Works float!
