An AxA crane for Irritec Italia
Irritec was founded in 1974 in Capo d’Orlando, in the province of Messina, as a manufacturer of PVC roller shutters. However, in the eighties, Carmelo, the son of the founder Rosario Giuffrè, realized that the microirrigation practices spread in the Middle Eastern countries, in the United States and in Arabia, are arriving in Italy and represent, for Irritec, an opportunity for development from seize on the fly. This is how Irritec, to meet the national need to adopt new systems for agricultural and residential irrigation, expands its offer with the production of various lines of pipes for agriculture and construction. The happy intuition bears fruit in the Nineties, when the true rise of the company begins. Today Irritec distributes its products in over 140 countries in the world, has more than 700 employees and production facilities in Italy, Spain, United States, Mexico, Chile and Brazil, as well as strategic deposits in Algeria, Germany and Bologna. In 40 years Irritec has grown steadily, maintaining solid foundations and always looking for important innovations in the field of irrigation.
