Our name pays homage to the Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage Site in Britain, which is universally recognized for its unique role in the development of the Industrial Revolution in the early years of the 18th century.
The “Iron Bridge” was built over the River Severn at Coalbrookdale in 1779. The bridge had a far reaching impact on local society and the economy, bridge design, and the use of cast iron in building. The bridge marks a major accomplishment for the industrial revolution and, in 1795, when the bridge survived the great floods, iron became the standard for bridge construction.
Ironbridge, to us, represents a strong symbol of industry and innovation.
