Eagle Iron Works was founded in 1872 by brothers George and Lawrence Aulmann in Des Moines, Iowa, and it has since become one of the leading companies in the aggregate industry for washing and classifying equipment. Ted Aulmann, son of George, managed the business through its major expansions in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1972, Ted's son-in-law Andrew Krantz took over as company president. Eagle Iron Works remained a family-owned business until his retirement in 2011 at the age of 97.
In November 2012, McLanahan Corporation purchased the assets of Eagle Iron Works.
