History & Heritage

IPC Global Ltd. was founded in Taipei, Taiwan in 1981. At that time, we were one of the export pioneers of Taiwanese woodworking machinery. In 1985, IPCG and several Australian distributors created The Woodman Group, which offers a variety of shop equipment to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, UK, South Africa and many other countries.
 
IPCG's first subsidiary, Century Hardware, Inc. was established in 1992, which mainly exports cabinet hardware, furniture fittings and home improvement products to the international market. As the business continued to expand, we relocated to Taichung, Taiwan in 1995. In 1998, our North America distribution center was established in Grand Rapids, Michigan, giving us the ability to provide customer service and same day shipping for Century Hardware and Builder’s Choice decorative hardware brands to customers in USA and Canada.

As our heritage continues, our dedicated team members are committed to render excellent products and value-added services to customers at home as well as in global markets.
