When it all began

Core Electrical was established in 1981 by the directors of Dublin based electrical wholesale company, BKC Electrical, when they were appointed sole distributors in Ireland for the Marshall-Tufflex range of PVC-U cable management solutions. Jim Cloughley and Tommy Keeley soon recognised that there were other manufacturers out there who wished to do business in Ireland but who were unable to justify the set-up costs associated with establishing a local presence. Soon enough Core started to form strategic partnerships with other manufacturers and act as the independent Sales, Logistics and Accounts partner for a number of these manufacturers to this day.  


Shaping the future

1997 saw the Keeley family acquire the business and under the guidance of Tony Keeley and his management team Core has continued to expand its cable management offering and become a pioneer in Underfloor to Desk Power Distribution and Modular Wiring Solutions in the Irish market.


Growing business

In 2011, following several requests from some of our manufacturing partners to extend our activities into Northern Ireland, we established Core Electrical (Northern Ireland) in Belfast.


Power in Progress

Today Core is an all Ireland Group which employs 30 people across our two facilities. Working closely with end-clients, consultant engineers, developers, office furniture companies and electrical contractors we support major construction projects by offering turnkey solutions that contribute to create modern, reliable and cost-effective electrical installations. Since our formation almost forty years ago, our loyal network of wholesale partners has helped us bring many new product lines to the market and they have enabled us to offer service levels that are second to none.
