    Historical Context
    Follansbee Steel traces its history back to the early 1800s when James Park produced a number of products, including block tin, ingot copper, antimony, sheet zinc, sheet iron, and tin-plated carbon steel, a widely-used sheet metal roofing product. The tin plated sheet manufactured by Park came to be known as the “old tin roof.”

    Ownership of the company switched hands to James Scott, and eventually was purchased by John and Robert Follansbee. The outstanding performance and popularity of the "old tin roof" coupled with the brothers’ entrepreneurial expertise resulted in a rapid expansion of the newly named company of Follansbee Steel. In 1902, the opening of the Follansbee Steel plant gave rise to the establishment of the City of Follansbee, West Virginia.

    In 1954, the Louis Berkman Company purchased Follansbee and sold all the basic steel production operations to Wheeling Steel.
