Brief history of the company

Founded in 1960 by a young tradesman from Italy, Irpinia is nothing short of a Canadian success story. Named after the tradesman’s hometown, Irpinia began its journey as a small shop on Ossington Avenue in Toronto. With a continued focus on quality and innovation, the company established itself as an industry leader for custom cabinetry in North America. The brand attracted a number of the world’s most famous celebrities, distinguished clientele, and high-profile residential developers and has completed some of the most complex and innovative cabinetry projects in the world.

Its quick growth soon fueled Irpinia to open a 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Richmond Hill. Despite its international success, Irpinia has remained a proudly Canadian company, with all of its custom cabinetry still produced in the GTA.
