An iron founder (also iron-founder or ironfounder) is a worker in molten ferrous metal, generally working within an iron foundry.[1]

Historically the appellation "founder" was given to the supervisor of a blast furnace, and persons who made castings in iron or other heavy metal.[2] The term is also often applied to the company or works in which an iron foundry operates.
