History - International Construction Equipment, Inc.

In 1974, Dick Morris, Tom Cunningham and Bob Vincent pooled their experience in the foundation construction industry to form International Construction Equipment, Inc., ICE®. The goal was to manufacture and market advanced pile driving and drilling equipment for the deep foundation industry.

The initial focus of their collaboration was to design and build vibratory pile drivers/extractors. Their approach was simple, but significant – using available horsepower, turn as much eccentric moment as possible at 1,600 vibrations per minute. This approach, critical to maintaining full speed during hard driving, resulted in the greatest production day after day. This, plus other advances in vibratory technology developed by International Construction Equipment, Inc., quickly made the bright green and yellow "ICE" logo a common symbol on job sites among the likes of CAT, Manitowoc and Linkbelt.

With a philosophy dedicated to serving their foundation construction clients through the development of new products, expansion into the impact hammer market was the natural progression for International Construction Equipment, Inc. After initially starting as distributors for BSP, Menck and Mitsubishi, an opportunity to acquire a well-established product line presented itself in 1979. After only five years in business, International Construction Equipment, Inc. purchased the Link-Belt diesel hammer line from FMC Corporation and added impact hammers to their line of manufactured equipment.

This acquisition set the stage for development of a line of single-acting diesels that would establish a new standard for diesel pile hammers. International Construction Equipment, Inc. engineers combined the clean, efficient operation of high-pressure fuel injection, with structural and systemic improvements over existing single-acting hammers. The result was a line of low-weight, high-efficiency diesel hammers with energy ratings of up to 210,000 ft-lbs. In early 2000, International Construction Equipment, Inc. added cost-effective Chinese-made diesel hammers to their product line.

In 2009, International Construction Equipment, Inc. contracted with Comacchio, the Italian manufacturer, for exclusive distribution in the USA of the Comacchio line of drilling and geothermal rigs. The Comacchio line includes multiuse hydraulic drill rigs suitable for ground consolidation, anchor drilling, geotechnical works, water well drilling and geothermal energy.

Expanding geographically from the original Matthews, North Carolina location, International Construction Equipment, Inc. opened branch locations and distributors across the US and Canada. In 1977, International Construction Equipment, Inc. owners group established International Construction Equipment BV in The Netherlands to market, and later to manufacture, foundation equipment in Europe. Today, International Construction Equipment, Inc. has a strong group of dealers to handle all relationships and service to Europe. ICE Far East Pte, Ltd. was formed in Singapore in 1982 to serve the foundation industry in the Far East. ICE Far East owns ICE Far East Sdn. Bhn. in Malaysia. In 2003, International Construction Equipment, Inc. established ICE APAC in China.

With an eye to environmental considerations, International Construction Equipment, Inc. power units are in full compliance with all current US EPA and European pollution–control requirements. Further development enabled the use of non-toxic, biodegradable fuel and lubricants, replacing petroleum products on environmentally-sensitive jobs.

Combining internal product development with carefully selected external manufacturers, International Construction Equipment, Inc. has expanded its product range to include vibratory driver/extractors, diesel impact hammers, hydraulic impact hammers, leads & spotters, leads & excavator mounted rotary heads, and hydraulic drilling rigs to provide a “one-stop foundation shop” for contractors worldwide.

More than thirty years later, the spirit of growth and development continues to thrive inside our company with a continual introduction of ever more productive and cost-effective pile driving and drilling equipment. International Construction Equipment, Inc has also continued to build its global presence by setting up stronger more customer-focused distributors and service centers worldwide. We continue to grow because we care about our clients and their need for dependable deep foundation equipment and service in our ever changing global environment.
