Core Distribution NI Celebrates 10 Years in Business

Core Distribution Northern Ireland is celebrating a decade of success thanks to its dedicated team and continued support from wholesalers and contractors alike. Part of the Core Electrical Group, the Northern Ireland based company was set up after a request was made by Core’s long standing manufacturing partners, Marshall-Tufflex and CMD who were looking to have a presence in Northern Ireland. Managing Director of Core Distribution NI, Adrian McGarrity, conducted market research into this proposal and a short time later, premises were secured and a team was formed, working from Unit 4 Duncrue Industrial Park, Belfast.

Primarily, the aim of the company was to re-establish Marshall Tufflex and CMD Powerplan products back into the Northern Irish market. Adrian explained, “Finding the right people and securing the right location for our Belfast warehouses were our two main priorities, then providing good local technical support which helped give our customers the confidence to trust us with their project or stock orders. The company has witnessed steady growth in the last 10 years with Atkore L-R: Lesley Curry, Accounts, Kevin Mooney, Warehouse and Logistics Manager, Lenny Dowie, Internal Sales Manager and Adrian McGarrity, MD. Flexicon joining us in 2015 and last year we were asked if they could start to offer a full steel containment package alongside our PVC and Aluminium containment. So, we again joined forces with adding Atkore Unistrut this market leading brand to our range.”

Adrian explained that the future for Core NI looks to be a positive one. “Even with the uncertainty over Brexit and the pandemic, we are planning to offer an inhouse cutting service where cut lengths of Unistrut strut and threaded rod can be supplied to site.” Speaking to Ireland’s Electrical Magazine about their 10-years in business, Adrian commented: “We are very fortunate that we have had the same loyal team members since we started a decade ago and we have been able to add to that team during that time. We are also appreciative of Northern Ireland’s wholesalers and M&E contractors and consultants for showing us their support throughout the last decade.”
