Ironwood 53 renamed to Post Manufacturing


Effective May 1, 2024, Ironwood 53 in Rock Valley, IA will have a new name as the company will be rebranded to Post Manufacturing. The change is in name only, as the location, ownership, leadership, and employees will all remain the same.


“We started Ironwood 53 in 2015 as a manufacturing company to design and build parts and equipment for the ag and industrial sector. As time has passed and the company has grown, it makes sense to bring the manufacturing side of the business under the Post name to provide continuity to our customers,” said Mike Post, owner and president. Other Post companies include Post Equipment and Post Metal Recycling, all located on the same parcel of land on the southern outskirts of Rock Valley.


Post Manufacturing will continue to be managed by John Langeraap, a longtime member of the Post team who provides extensive manufacturing experience and expertise. Post Manufacturing’s phone number will remain 712.451.4553, however email addresses will change to and the website will be rebranded to
