Moran Iron Works is located in Onaway, Michigan, a rural area in Northern Lower Michigan. The company's headquarters and largest manufacturing facility is in Onaway, Michigan. It also operates a manufacturing facility in Cheboygan, Michigan and a port and fabrication facility in Rogers City, Michigan. All facilities are fully certified in accordance with the American Institute of Steel Construction standards: Steel Building Structures, Intermediate Bridge Fabrication, Fracture Critical Members Endorsement and Sophisticated Paint Endorsement. MIW is an American Welding Society Certified Fabricator, with staff holding CWI, CWE and CWS certifications, and also a Canadian Welding Bureau Certified Fabricator.
Located in northeast Michigan, the world headquarters of Moran Iron Works is a well-equipped fabrication facility, from administration and engineering to shop space and machining area. With a total 125,000 sq ft manufacturing area, bay heights of up to 40 ft, and virtually unlimited laydown area, there is no project too big.
The location provides easy access to major highways and the Port Calcite shipping facility.
This 25,000 sq ft welding and fabrication shop coordinates with the main shop in Onaway to process and produce parts and products that complement and integrate with our mainstay projects.
In 2004, Moran Iron Works, in cooperation with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), created a 22 mile High Wire Corridor from the manufacturing facilities in Onaway to the Port Calcite location in Rogers City. All of the overhead utility lines are raised to provide a 28 foot clearance, and a Michigan law was passed to protect the corridor.
With that infrastructure investment, projects that would not typically be suitable for the road can be transported along the High Wire Corridor. This allows for large modular components to go between the fabrication shop to the port for barge shipment to any location in the world.
Allowable shipping dimensions range between 28 feet tall and up to 40 feet wide.
The deep water port at Calcite is located in Northeast Michigan on the northwestern shore of Lake Huron in Rogers City. Port Calcite is centrally located in the Great lakes, in close proximity to regional mineral mines and processing facilities, and at midpoint of the major Great Lakes shipping lanes.
Port Calcite provides space and equipment to facilitate vessel construction and repair services in addition to other various shipping activities.
Our long history of innovative handling of normal and heavy cargo, logistics, cargo storage, and labor and machinery requirements for specialized cargo services provides for a uniquely efficient logistics experience.
