About A&R Iron
A & R Wrought Iron Railings was formed in August 1979 by Guy V. Romero & Frank Alkins. Their principal products were wrought iron railings, window guards, and fire escapes. They incorporated in January 1982 as A & R Iron Works, Inc., with Guy as President and Frank as Vice President.
In 1986 the Company expanded their products and services to include miscellaneous structural steel fabrication and erection (railings, stairs, small framing) and subsequently progressed into heavy structural steel fabrication and erection (beams, columns, joist and deck). In May of 1992 Frank Alkins retired and Guy purchased his equity interest in the company, becoming the sole shareholder and retaining his title as President. In 1989, Robin Romero became Vice President.
Originally, the corporate offices were located in Folsom, PA and a second 10,000 square foot fabrication shop operated in Prospect Park, PA. In 1998, Guy and Robin Romero built a new facility in Trainer, PA. Having all the facilities under one roof, the business was able to expand to over $4 million in sales and up to 25 employees. This was an expansion year for both A & R Iron Works, Inc. and Guy Romero.
Both of Guy and Robin’s sons, Nick and Chris, have joined the company business. Their sons are learning all facets of steel fabrication and erection.
In 2007, Guy and Robin built a 24,000 square foot facility where the company now resides.
Our customers include schools, shopping centers, banks, restaurants, industrial parks, and housing developments, as well as private individuals.
Guy and Robin Romero and their four children, lifetime residents of Delaware County, have resided in Glen Mills, PA since 1986.
