HISTORY

ECON has been owned and operated by the McCain family as a steel supply company for 100 years. In 1913, ECON founder Willard E. McCain came to Erie to build a railroad car dumping system. Willard liked what he saw, decided to stay, and the McCain family business had its start. From its early beginning as a railroad bridge and road paving company. . .

ECON soon focused on general construction. In fact, ECON played a significant role in the construction of some northwest Pennsylvania’s largest construction projects during the first half of the 20th century.

Having survived the great depression, ECON Steel entered the shipbuilding business at the foot of Cascade Street on the exact location where Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry built his fleet that defeated the British over 100 years before. During its heyday in World War II the shipyard employed 700 workers and regularly completed entire ships every thirty days for the war effort.

Throughout its long history ECON Steel has been fortunate to serve customers who remain loyal to this day and to employ associates who shared the company’s vision. Under the direction of Scott McCain, the company’s third-generation owner, ECON has become an indispensable resource for customers from coast to coast. “When you walk through our warehouse you are looking experience that has accumulated for over 100 years. Year- after- year our customers continue to rely on our unique experience to find the best solutions. We’re proud of that. We like to think it makes a difference for our customers.”
