The original Thomas Heiton came to Dublin 1818, to work in the coal and iron business. His firm grew from strength to strength, and was incorporated in 1896. Because coal was so important to Dublin social and business life, Heitons had by then become a household name. After the Second World War, the importation of coal into Ireland reached a peak and the decision was made to concentrate on the Steel side of the business. The housing boom of the late 1940's and 1950's gave the Steel Department a huge boost. Over the next twenty five years the firm changed tack and successfully re-established itself as a market leader in the steel arena.
