Mark Evan Robinson, founder

Early Years

Mark Evan Robinson laid the groundwork for Induction Iron Inc. in 1975, drawing upon his experience while employed at Scrap Corp of America. Recognizing a niche in the market for high-quality, low carbon steel melt stock, Mark seized the opportunity to establish a new venture within Scrap Corp. With the backing of his parent company, he pioneered this line of business, catering to foundries across the United States. Two years later, amid financial challenges faced by Scrap Corp of America, the company underwent acquisition by a foreign entity. In a shrewd maneuver, Mark negotiated a deal with the new owners to acquire the low carbon operation, thus setting the stage for the independent establishment of Induction Iron Inc.
