American Made Iron


We never thought about making our plates anywhere else, we have always wanted all our products to be Made In the USA. Our search for a high-quality American Foundry led us to Waupaca Foundry who has been making best in class iron for over 60 years.

Located in Wisconsin, Waupaca is one of the largest foundries in America with a melt capacity of 10,000 metric tons/day and is the world’s largest gray and ductile iron producer. With vast experience in the industry, they were able to take our design prototype and manufacture our plates to exact specifications.

Built To Last


Our goal was to make plates that would be functional, easy to handle, and most of all -- accurate. Cast of gray iron, using innovative technology every single plate has a combination of toughness, precision, and reliability from casting all the way to finish.  

Our 45s and 25s were designed to be thin while at the same time have a deep lip for ease of handling and the inner diameter of all our plates was designed to have a snug fit on the bar. Made of American Iron these plates are designed to last a lifetime.

Precision Machining


Following casting our plates are machined along the outer and inner diameters. This process makes for a smooth finish and ensures both size and weight specification. Every single plate goes through the same machining process from 45s to 2.5s ensuring accuracy to within 2% of design weight.

Seeking a plate that did not wobble and move once on the bar we made the inner diameter of all our plates 1.99”. Industry standard barbells sleeves are 1.95” resulting in a precise fit on your barbell.

Electro Coated


Our plates are washed and pre-treated before a layer of e-coat is applied, adding durability and protection underneath our e-coat surface.

Popular in the automotive and agriculture world for its durability, e-coating is a process that attaches paint to the surface of the iron using electricity. This finish prevents corrosion, is resistant to chipping and has a more uniform coating than other methods used for finishing plates.  

An In-Depth Look At How We Designed Our Plates

As Seen In Starting Strength Gyms

We're proud to be the official supplier of plates for Starting Strength Gyms. With original design feedback from Mark Rippetoe himself and the staff at Starting Strength, it is no surprise that the finished product was chosen by some of the world’s best coaches for their franchise gyms. Already in eight locations with another twenty scheduled for next year, you can find The Strength Co. iron in gyms from Boston to Boise and everywhere in between.



Made For Lifters By Lifters

As coaches and gym owners, we had our issues with different types of plates over the years. First of all, we could not find any cast iron still produced in the United States, so when we began manufacturing ours, we were bringing back American Olympic Iron Plates for the first time in decades. Having coached thousands of lifters and being weightlifters ourselves, we designed these plates to be practical for all users and durable enough to handle the rigors of a commercial gym. When you handle The Strength Iron it becomes abundantly clear that these plates were indeed designed by a team with knowledge of the industry.



A Slim And Rugged Design

Our entire plate line, from our 100LBs down to 1.25LBs are designed to be thin, functional, and maintenance free. Our slim design keeps the weight close to the lifter even when dealing with heavy loads, and allows for maximum loading of your barbell or adjustable dumbbell. The lip on each plate serves as a handle, making them very easy to grasp and securely hold while loading and unloading your bar. Our machined and e-coat finish leaves a clean shine on the edges, while providing a textured surface on the front and back; keeping your plates both rust and scratch free and looking like new for years to come.

I recently purchased the whole gym package from The Strength Co. I've lifted with all brands of equipment over the years but I definitely love the look and feel of Strength Co equipment for my new home gym. Thanks for the fast shipping.

Great finish and accurate weights. I couldn't believe how lucky I was with my 45's. I ordered 3 sets of 45's, 1 set of 25, 1 set of 10, 2 sets of 5, and 1 set of 2.5...Took me a long time to decide between these and Rogue deep dish. I'm 100% glad I went with these. I'm definitely getting more 45's.

Zsolt

Best overall plates on the market. First of all, The Strength Co customer service is great. Second, these plates are basically perfect. I prefer them over several other well known high end plates that I owned but sold to get these. The fit on a quality bar is really not comparable to anything else. I just don’t know what else to say. Super impressed. Pictures really don’t do them justice.

Beautiful, High Quality Plates

I've been using the 45's and 25's for a few weeks. Just got my 10's 5's and 2.5's yesterday to complete the set. When I first looked at them online, they seemed equivalent to the cheap cast iron non-machined plates that you could theoretically get for a bit over $1/lb before Covid, but as Strength Co developed the product, it was apparent that they are really more equivalent to machined plates that you used to be able to buy from the other companies before COVID for $2-3/lb. This makes them a good value, especially considering that nobody else seems to be shipping plates. Glad they took the time to upgrade to the e-coat finish. I accidentally dropped two of my 45's from about 5 feet onto a concrete floor the first day, and they didn't even chip. Thanks to Grant and his crew for developing a great product! under difficult circumstances!

Quality plates, but be careful of fit.

High quality plates, but be careful of the bar fit. I own a “Texas Power Bar” I purchased in 2008 from EliteFTS and the plates won’t slide on. I like the concept of the smaller inner diameter and snug fit, but unfortunately they don’t fit my power bar. They fit my Pendlay Olympic bar just fine, but frustrating nonetheless.

Amazing Made in USA Option

The plates are beautifully machined. I love the wide lip, makes grabbing the plates so much easier. That was never something I had considered when it comes to plates, until I felt the difference with the Strength Co plates. I tested the hole diameter against the Cap plates that these are replacing, and there's no contest. I haven't used clips on my barbell since receiving these plates, don't need to. Out of three sets of 45 lb plates that I ordered, I did receive a couple that weren't machined too well. I get it, these things happen. The exchange process was dead simple, and I even received an email from Grant himself saying that they'd take care of it. I think it really says something about how confident the owner is that they have such a simple process to make things right with their customers. Overall, best plates I've ever used, now I just need to get stronger to justify buying more.

Awesome Plates

I would recommend these to anyone needing plates. They look great and of course function well too. Strength Co. is a really cool company worth supporting; after watching Grant’s interview with Coop from Garage Gym Reviews I just wish I had more money to spend and support what they’re doing!
