Ryan Ironworks, 1830 Broadway, Raynham, MA 02767, (508)822-8001


Ryan Ironworks, Taunton, MA

Ryan Ironworks was established back in 1918 as a miscellaneous metal working shop. Back in 1940 the shop was actually commisioned by the government to produce tanks. In 1973 Howe Shea and Paul Kelly purchased the company. The shop has been growing each year and has continuosly adjusted to the demanding industry. Currently the union shop employs approximately 100 people, which include 8 FT estimators. These estimators bid approximately $800 million worth of work a year. Some of the shops recent jobs included the Gillette Stadium railings as well as the Buckenieres Stadium in Tampa, Fl. Ryan has also done a significant amount of miscellaneous work within some highend buildings in downtown Boston. Currently, Ryan Ironworks operates out of a 45,000 square foot shop and a seperate 9,000 square foot, non-feris shop. Ryan Ironworks just added on a 7,500 sqaure foot extension to house their new blasting booth.

Peddinghaus Anglemaster Recently, Ryan Ironworks had a need to process a significant amount of angled material for a particular job. Howe's son John has been eyeing up the Peddinghaus Anglemaster for the past 8 years and saw this as a great opportunity to make the investment. Working with Salesman, Dave Edney, from Atlantic Machinery Sales, Ryan received the machine at the beginning of the year.


Making a few modification such as guards and piston enclosures to protect their investment, Ryan Ironworks was ready to put the Anglemaster to the test.


Recaping their first job with the Peddinghaus Anglemaster, shop foreman Mike Riley and John Shea realized that they had just paid for the machine in just 6 weeks! Looking back at the job, they figured that it would have taken the shop 3,700 hours to complete the job vs. the 600 hours it actually took using the Anglemaster.


Currently, the Peddinghaus Anglemaster is still hard at work. The shop has been evaluating old processes and speeding them up by using the machine. This has greatly increased productivity times as well as made the processes safer. Having made the safety modifications to the machine and operating with minimal product handling, the Peddinhaus Anglemaster has proven it self as real work horse that will stand the test of time.
