and his father-in-law, Richard W. Round, established a
foundry on the shores of Lake Charlevoix in the town of
East Jordan. Known as East Jordan Iron Works for over 125
years, the company has become an international leader in
the design, manufacture, and distribution of access solutions
for water, sewer, drainage, telecommunications, and utility
