Our 
Story

IronWorkz Co. was founded on December 20, 2022 by Faith N. Spencer, Alex Termini and Emmani Ellis. The name [IronWorkz] was developed from Gary being known for its steel mills, where many families migrated from the South to create a better life for their families. IronWorkz was created for the community and to help bridge the gap on equity issues while embodying what it means to be a Gary resident. IronWorkz will serve as a powerhouse for the city’s residents and connect them with the tools, organizations, and resources they will need to create and innovate in the world of entrepreneurship but also to become the best versions of themselves.
