Rich in History and Charm


Capital Iron is so named for its start as a scrap business. The company was founded in 1934 by Morris L. Greene. He had a considerable knowledge of ships which, combined with the company’s waterfront location, enabled him to build up his business by dismantling ships for scrap. Between 1934 and 1971 the company dismantled nearly 100 ships of various sizes.
