Smithey Ironware expanding Charleston County operations

Smithey Ironware Company, a designer and manufacturer of premium cast iron and carbon steel cookware, is expanding its operations in Charleston County. The more than $2 million investment is expected to create 22 new jobs.

Founded in 2015, Smithey Ironware Company transforms raw castings, with a surface similar to heavy grit paper, into elegant cookware pieces by both hand and machine. The company’s finishing manufacturing process involves hand-grinding, tumbling, machining and seasoning castings.

Located at 1465 Pipefitter Street in North Charleston’s Navy Yard, Smithey Ironware Company’s new facility will accommodate additional equipment, office space and employees, while serving as the company’s headquarters.
