Rich in History and Charm
Capital Iron is so named because it started as a scrap business. The company was founded in 1934 by Morris L. Greene. He believed that there was potential for a scrap business in Victoria. He had a considerable knowledge of ships, which combined with the company’s waterfront location, enabled him to build up his business by dismantling ships for scrap. Between 1934 and 1971 the company dismantled nearly 100 ships of various sizes.Learn More
