Patrick Cody Ltd. Company Background

Product Development

Patrick Cody Ltd was founded in 1892Since its inception in 1892, Patrick Cody Ltd. has manufactured a diverse range of timber products. In the early days, the business concentrated on public saw-milling, parts for agricultural vehicles, tool handles and kitchen chairs. In the 1940's the company manufactured parts for the electricity and telephone transmission lines as well as parts for the railway line network. In the 1950's and 1960's the company concentrated on the production of wooden boxes for the fishing and mineral bottle trades.

Since the 1970’s, the company has concentrated on the production of timber components for the bedding trade. To compliment this development, in the early 1980’s the company commenced the import and distribution of hardware and plastic components for the furniture industry. The company is now a specialist one-stop source for all timber and hardware components for the bed frame industry.

We now include a range of garden and landscaping productsGiven the international contacts already established in sourcing furniture components, in the mid 1980’s the company decided to commence the import and distribution of castors and wheels for industry. This business has grown significantly over the years and we are now one of the largest distributors of industrial castors and wheels in Ireland.

Given our extensive knowledge of the timber industry we have now included treated garden timber and decking to our product portfolio. In recent times, the company has expanded its product range to include products aimed at the garden and landscaping market. Patrick Cody Ltd. was the first company in Ireland to launch the highly successful and innovative “Plantex®” geo-textile weed control fabric.  Since then we have complemented this product with many more exciting and innovative products for the garden and landscaping market.
