The Rogers-Brown Iron Company was incorporated on December 27, 1909, in New York, and absorbed the Buffalo & Susquehanna Iron Company by an exchange of stock.
The company controlled, by lease or stock ownership, ore lands in Minnesota and Michigan, which were said to contain about 25,000,000 tons of iron ore. They also held control of the output of 3,800 acres of coal land at Tyler and Sykesville, Pennsylvania, with an estimate of 14,000,000 tons of coal; and owned four blast furnaces at Buffalo, New York, which had a capacity of about 1,400 tons of pig iron per day.
In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, the company also owned a canal which connected the plant with the harbor at Buifalo. The plant also had rail connections with the leading railroads entering Bufialo.
The company also owned all the stock of the Munro Iron Mining Company.
