About Irish Carbonic

A fourth generation, family-owned, certified
women’s enterprise

About us
Irish Companies is a fourth generation, family-owned, certified women’s enterprise that began serving our Upstate New York neighbors in 1932, when Ralph Irish founded the R.N. Irish Coal Company.

After a period of growth that eventually found Ralph Irish’s youngest son Bob at the helm of a thriving propane business, the company further diversified into Irish Carbonic in the 1960s. The company began by offering carbonated gas and dry ice products to its Buffalo- and Rochester-area customers, later expanding its service area to provide bulk CO2 to cities in Ohio.

A lot has changed since 1932, but the values that form the core of the Irish Company way have remained true to Ralph’s founding vision:

  • there-whenever-you-need-us service
  • fair and honest pricing
  • problem-solving innovation
  • best-in-class safety standards

But don’t take our word for it—listen to what our customers have to say…or become a customer today and discover the Irish Carbonic Difference for yourself!
