Default Industrial Iron Works information

Hello all, new to the forum and not sure if this is the correct place to post for information or not.

The Industrial Iron Works, Clinton, Missouri USA were manufactures of gas engines in the 2-20 HP range. Only a few have survived.

I have been collecting information on IIW for about 30 years and while there is not a lot of info there is some out there. It occured to me after coming across this site awile back that there might still be some info yet unkown to me to uncover.

There are 2 gentleman still living that actually worked in the Industrial Iron Works plant, much after engine production but were well aquainted with the owner and pressident of the co. So I thought that there still might be others that know a little something. They had one in the family etc have seen advertising.

The BLB reports that they were know as the Missouri Engines in there time. Anyone know this to be true? The historical record says they were known as " The Industrial".

So any tibits, stories, rumors, thoughts will be welcome.

They were sold regionally as well as the Phillipines and Saudi Arabia, hows that for a story.
