Oil City Iron Works honored

AFS Corporate Member Oil City Iron Works (Corsicana, Texas) was named Large Business of the Year at the Corsicana & Navarro County Chamber of Commerce Gold & Silver Awards Luncheon.

The annual award is presented to businesses that make an impact to the local economy through growth and local trade, charitable endeavors, and compassion for employees, as well as a commitment to its customers. The iron foundry added more than 70 employees in 2017 and has continually supported local charitable organizations, schools and retail businesses.

“We were humbled to be honored by our local Chamber of Commerce,” Oil City Iron Works president and CEO Eric Ryan Meyers said. “Community is at the center of our success. It’s in the people we hire, the local retailers we shop with, and the organizations here in Corsicana, Navarro County and the surrounding area we support through our charitable endeavors. To be recognized for our efforts by this very same community makes it all worthwhile.”

Angela Meyers, wife of Meyers, accepted the award on behalf of Oil City.
