Irish International Trading Corporation (Cork) PLC, established 1920, is one of Ireland’s leading wholesalers of Hardware, Steel, Wire, Salt and Plumbing materials & bathrooms.

In 1935 IITC purchased premises at Rocksavage / Anglesea Street and in subsequent years additional adjoining properties. Supplying mostly into the Agricultural sector the company expanded into general hardware and plumbing materials, before further expanding with the purchase of the “Marsh’s Yard”  premises in Copley Street in 1966 where a steel and wire business was operated.

Being a major wholesaler in the south with a strong loyal customer base, IITC opened a depot in Ballymount, Dublin in 1990 to service the mid-lands and northern parts of the country.

In 2002 IITC relocated from Rocksavage & Copley Street to a purpose built premises on Tramore Road, Cork where our head offices and departments are based on a 7 acre site.

IITC purchased Hibernian Salt at Tivoli Industrial Estate, Cork in 2004 supplying salt to various industries.

Currently employing close to 100 people, good personal relations with customers, suppliers and a dedicated experienced staff are in the company’s opinion a cornerstone for continued successful long term business. Throughout its long history and having weathered many economic cycles, IITC always kept its feet on the ground with steady growth and expansion. A diverse wholesaler and Steel Stockholder serving the Agricultural and Building sectors along with many more aligned trades, the emergence of a fast changing world presents opportunities and challenges which the company is well geared for.

We at IITC would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued custom down through the years and look forward to helping you with the growth of your business.
