About Us

Modular Mechanical Supports

Our prefabricated mechanical supports are constructed out of Sikla modular structural support members and components, which are engineered to perform as a primary pipe support system.
Sikla Framo (siFramo) assembles five times faster than fabricated steel, and requires no on-site welding, drilling, or burning.

All hardware connections are made with the same size vibration-proof thread forming screw – which tightens into place with a standard, 20 volt impact driver – and are easy to adjust in the field, unlike welded connections.

Sikla is highly compatible with many other metal framing systems, such as Unistrut, and comes standard in a high corrosion (ISO C4 grade) finish.

About Eberl Iron Works, Inc.

Serving the Needs of Our Customers Since 1923
1923 - Founded

EIW was founded in 1923 by brothers George and Frank Eberl. EIW began as a small welding shop which fabricated wrought iron railings, exterior fire escapes and miscellaneous iron.

Contained within EIW are five unique and distinct divisions, that meet our customers’ most challenging needs: Rooftop Support Systems (RTS), Traffic Safety Products (TSP), Unistrut Buffalo Supports (UBS), Metal Fabrication Services (MFS), and Stair Components & Systems (SCS).

2012 - Cousins Take Over

Ownership passed to our third generation on January 1, 2012, with cousins John Eberl as chief executive officer and Nora Eberl as chief financial officer.

Their talent and enthusiasm are proving invaluable as they pursue new strategies for growth, and new ideas for our valued customers.

2016 - Rooftop Division Relocates

Housed in the same building (right next door to the Eberl Family’s original residence) since its inception in 1923, EIW has expanded its warehouse three times, over the years, to account for growth and increased storage needs.

In 2016, the Rooftop Supports division was moved into a newly acquired building, right down the street from our headquarters, to pave the way for present and future growth.

Order are shipped, nationwide, right from our headquarters, in downtown Buffalo, NY.
