In 1909, J.R. Hoe migrated with his family from Pittsburgh to the mountain region of Kentucky to take over operations of the Pioneer Iron Works. Over the next several decades his five sons, each skilled in ironmaking, developed the company into a regional center of metalworking expertise. By the mid-20th century the company began to make construction castings to serve the nation’s growing infrastructure needs. The ‘HOE OF KY’ brand is present today on tens of thousands of street castings across the region, a mark of their quality and durability. Over 100 years later, J.R. HOE and SONS continues to produce quality construction products using state-of-the-art technology and innovative design. The founding principle of J.R. Hoe is carried forward:
Build quality and it will last.
