ICE® ownership ventured into other countries including opening International Construction Equipment BV (ICE-BV) in The Netherlands in 1977, ICE Far East Pte, Ltd. (ICE-FE) in Singapore in 1982, and ICE APAC in China in 2003.
Through vast partnerships and the demand for the green iron - ICE® products, ICE-BV was granted permission to begin manufacturing two of ICE® Vibratory Driver and Extractors and two power units in the Netherlands. A few years later, ICE®, felt compelled to bring all manufacturing back into the USA as there was no longer a cost benefit for ICE® partners to use the facility in the Netherlands. A little over 15-years ago ICE®, sold all equity in this BV company which has since gone through 2 or 3 other acquisitions.
Since then ICE® has grown nearly 8X and the equipment being engineered, machined, assembled and tested is accomplished right here in the heart of the USA - Matthews, NC.
Our partners ICE Far East Pte, Ltd. in Singapore has been serving the foundation industry in the Far East since 1982. They are outstanding foundation experts, who have since expanded into ICE Far East Sdn. Bhn. in Malaysia. ICE® manufacturers, sells and rents through many global partners, ICE FE is one of the largest. For more information on ICE Far East please visit www.icefe.com.
ICE APAC in China was established in 2003 as a partner to ICE® and it is thriving as a strong partner and sales extension to ICE®.
As a leader in the deep foundation industry since 1974, the ICE® family is proud to still be engineering, machining and manufacturing pile driving and drilling equipment in the USA and shipping to our global partners. The ICE® team is also overly appreciative and humbled by our partners, distributors, branches and suppliers for the outstanding job and service they offer to our clients.
One-Stop Foundation Machine

But adversity in these challenges has always been overcome with the talent and experience our ICE® team brings to the job and to the client. Our ICE® team members have an average tenure of 20+ years and are well versed in your foundation equipment needs. As times change and the job requirements get more complex, ICE® has been there in the forefront of innovation by providing guidance not only to the client but to the industry by expanding our team with current resident experts, reviewing industry trends and moving with the times.
For example, and at the environment's request, ICE® had the very first US T4 engine built into a power unit in 2014 that met all the emissions standards for 2019. At customer request, ICE® has one of the toughest drilling & piling mast thus created. At the US crane manufacturer requests, ICE® stood to the task and has created a vibration suppression solution.
It has taken many years, many friends and partners and a loyal team (and not so loyal) to become the world's most recognizable, sought after and desired equipment manufacturer. But the ICE® team deserve recognition as they have earned their place in the world of global equipment manufacturing while continuing to be rooted as a family owned US company.
