About MMM, Inc.
MMM, Inc. was founded as Hardy-Newsom in 1905 in La Grange, North Carolina for the purpose
of making tobacco equipment. Over the years, the company made camouflage for the military
during war-time, and eventually settled into making cast-iron cooking pots, and concrete garden
The foundry was owned and operated by J. Ward McConnell, Jr. from 1979 to 2012 and then
the property was sold to the Town of La Grange. With our vast remaining inventory located in
Kinston, NC, MMM remains the leading provider of 3-gallon to 85-gallon cast-iron cooking pots
All of our pots have legs on the bottom for stability and handles on the sides. The 3-gallon
English pot also comes with a wire handle that can be used to carry the pot or hang it over a
fire. The 3-gallon pot is also the only pot that is offered with a lid.
Whether you are looking for a cast iron pot for cooking small stews or need a pot suitable to
cook for a large group, we are sure to have exactly what you are looking for.
We also have concrete garden statues and statue molds that were produced for a short period of
time at the foundry. Several of our concrete statues and statue molds are currently on
clearance. See that page for more information or give us a call today for more information.
