Starting with six employees in a small shop nearly forty years ago, IRC’s beginnings were rubber-coating parts for the mining
industry. As opportunities developed, IRC expanded its service to distribute hoses and fittings, pipe, belting, valves, and conveyor
belts to the mining, pulp and paper, agriculture, agrafood, power
utility and marine industries.
In 1986, IRC acquired the contract to supply the Canadian
Department of Defense with military vehicle track refurbishment and
promptly expanded the facility to include specialized molding and lining
capabilities at its facility located in Bathurst, New Brunswick,
Canada. By seizing opportunities for investment in research and
development, IRC has a proven track record in rubber technologies, and
now serves international industrial and defense industry clients throughout North America, South America and Europe.
