Serving Northwest Manufacturers & Fabricators Since 1981

IRC Aluminum & Stainless has been distributing stainless steel and aluminum products since 1981. Based in Portland, Oregon; IRC's location allows us to serve the strong manufacturing sector that exists in the Pacific Northwest, along with the rest of the Western United States. IRC's diverse customer base ranges from massive industrial and high-tech firms, to government entities, and all the way down to local craftsmen and small businesses.

In order to separate ourselves from the general "metal service centers" all over the country; IRC decided to expand its internal processing capabilities. IRC added its first industrial Waterjet cutting system in 1995 to serve the growing aluminum boat building industry in the Northwest. Since then, our operational knowledge of the machinery has grown, and so have our capabilities. Today, IRC is the premier Waterjet cutting group in the NW. We house some of the largest and most versatile Waterjet cutting machines in the region.
