Maguire Iron was honored at the Illinois Rural Water Association Technical Conference on Tuesday, February 15, 2022, as the 2021 Associate Member of the Year.
At Maguire Iron, we help store and protect quality water. We do this by being the best water tank company for our customers and employees. This was the goal of Ed Maguire when he started the company in 1915 and Gene Jones Sr.’s vision when he bought the company from Ed in 1958. It is the same goal that the Jones family carries on today along with over 160 employees located across the country.
“Maguire Iron has a long and successful relationship with the Illinois Rural Water Association . We are honored to be recognized as the Associate Member of the Year. We look forward to many more years as supporters of IRWA and the development of quality drinking water throughout the state of Illinois.”
“I am fortunate to work in an industry with amazing professionals who provide life-sustaining water to their customers every day,” said Maguire Iron Illinois Water Tower Expert Darin Clarke.
One of the main reasons Maguire Iron won this award was because of training talks provided by Maguire’s Water Tower Experts, Darin Clarke, Rich Kemmis, and Jamie Mays. Maguire Iron also partnered with ILRWA and Illinois EPA to provide training talks via webinars over the past two years to provide CEU’s to water professionals across Illinois.
“Working with the Illinois Rural Water Association during the COVID-19 pandemic to make sure that operators could get their credit hours to keep their licenses up-to-date has been a great honor for myself and our entire team at Maguire Iron,” said Clarke.
“This award is a great honor for Maguire Iron,” said Maguire Iron President Scott Jones. “This award shows our customers across Illinois that we are truly partners in helping them deliver quality water to their customers.”
