Maguire Iron was honored at the Iowa Rural Water Association Annual Conference on Monday, February 21, 2022, as the 2021 Associate Member of the Year.

Maguire Iron helps store and protect quality water. They do this by being the best water tank company for our customers and employees. This was the goal of Ed Maguire when he founded the company in 1915. Gene Jones Sr. continued this 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.

“Being recognized by the Iowa Rural Water Association as the Associate Member of the Year is a tremendous honor for our entire Maguire Iron team. We have been serving communities and rural water systems in Iowa for over 100 years.”
