We have over 750,000 square feet of manufacturing space across five locations throughout the US and Mexico. Each of our facilities is outfitted with a diversified set of capabilities, enabling us to meet the needs—and exceed the expectations of our customers. Because shipping times, inventory levels and freight costs are critical considerations in the supply chain, our robust manufacturing footprint provides you with a full spectrum of logistical supply options.
In 2005, following a third acquisition in six years, Howard Ice determined it was time to combine the collective capabilities of several companies and leverage them across the organization. This led to the establishment of Ice Industries’ corporate headquarters in Sylvania, Ohio. This 10,000-square-foot building houses our Executive team, along with our Sales, Engineering, IT, Purchasing, and Accounting groups.

Founded in 1948, Deerfield Manufacturing began as a screw-machine operation and evolved into a metal stamping company. In the late 1960s, Deerfield began stamping deep drawn compressor housings for the air-conditioning industry and trim parts for the automotive and appliance industries. By the mid-1990s, Deerfield had developed into a world-class manufacturer of deep drawn metal stampings, with two facilities and over 150 employees. In February 2002, Ice Industries acquired Deerfield Manufacturing and secured QS9000 and ISO/TS-16949 status. Deerfield’s capabilities include tool building and fabrication.
Ice Industries’ Grenada, Mississippi location primarily serves the automotive, HVACR, appliance and off-highway markets. Grenada has the capability to blank, form, weld and assemble a variety of materials, strengths and thicknesses. Our large format, high tonnage tandem press lines and 2200T automated transfer press handle everything from Class A appliance parts to some of the widest and heaviest materials used in the automotive frame market. These presses are fed with new coil feeders and straighteners capable of handling widths from 2 to 72 inches and thicknesses from 0.035 to 0.500 inches. High speed 1000T blankers provide blanking capacity for a variety of customer needs. A newly renovated 40,000 square foot facility complements our 300,000 square foot main plant, focusing on welding and assembly.
Ice Industries Grenada is capable of handling all the ancillary sub-assemblies and small part manufacturing needed to augment large part requirements. The press line-up is one of the most diverse and capable stamping, welding and assembly operations in the South.

The Grenada facility was established in 1961 by Lyons, Inc. and was acquired by Rockwell Standard (later known as Rockwell International) in 1967. The Randall Division of Textron acquired the facility in June 1985 as the stainless steel wheel cover business gave way to plastic wheel covers and styled wheel rims. When demand diminished, companies such as Thermos and Murray Lawnmowers were added to the existing customer base.
In August 1999, the facility changed hands as a result of a management buyout, and the newly generated business lines did not make up for losses caused by the decline in the stainless wheel cover business. In March 2005, Ice Industries acquired the business, and the company was renamed Grenada Stamping and Assembly, Inc. Today, the facility is known by its current name, Ice Industries Grenada.
Ice Industries is expanding again in the Gulf Coast region of Mississippi. Ice Industries Heavy Stamping Division, which is known as Ice Industries Titan, is Ice Industries’ latest addition to its wide range of capabilities. Ice Industries is currently in the process of installing two large 3000 ton stamping presses in a greenfield location approximately two miles north of Ice’s existing Grenada facility, allowing Ice to capitalize on the talented management team at Ice’s existing Grenada facility. This new 80,000 square foot facility is located in the City of Grenada’s new industrial facility and is located at 200 American Way.
These presses have massive bed sizes of 528 inches by 72 inches, stroke heights of 24 inches, and shut heights of 48 inches. The presses are being completely refurbished and fitted with 14 station Atlas Servo transfer systems and can be either coil fed or blank fed. This investment undoubtedly will position Ice as one of the largest and most capable stamping operations in the Southeast. Ice Industries’ sales team is currently working with manufacturers seeking to reserve a share of the new capacity.

This is Ice Industries’ fifth major investment in Mississippi since Ice resurrected the Grenada Stamping and Assembly facility in 2005. With the cooperation of State and local governments, Ice chose Grenada, Mississippi as the best location of its latest plant. Ice Industries HSD’s location within the central manufacturing corridor is well positioned to provide high volume automated transfer stamping support to a number of industries focused on the south including automotive and appliance markets.
This 115,000 square foot facility greatly expands our reach as a supplier of high quality, cost-competitive products. Ice Industries Mexico serves the large commercial compressor, scroll compressor and fire extinguisher pressure vessel markets. Consistent supply is guaranteed, as duplicate equipment and processes are used within multiple Ice facilities. Located in the Stiva Industrial Business Park near the international airport, this Ice location is easily accessible and well located to serve all of our customers in northern Mexico and the south-central United States.

The Ice Industries Mexico facility (formerly a Ronfeldt Associates operation) was a green field plant which first started production in 2005, originally designed to serve the HVACR market with large compressor shell production. The acquisition of the assets of Ronfeldt Associates by an affiliate of Ice Industries (Ronfeldt Manufacturing, LLC) was completed on February 29, 2008. Capabilities of the 115,000 square foot Ice Industries Mexico facility have expanded to include both hydraulic and mechanical press capabilities.
The Ice Industries Ronfeldt facility in Toledo, Ohio covers 80,000 square feet and has a long history of deep draw capabilities. Low-and high-volume production capabilities, engineering, tool build and first article sampling are all performed on site. With proximity to a wide range of outboard process sources, Ice Industries Ronfeldt is uniquely capable of producing the most complex metal parts and welded assemblies. Complex part production costs are reduced and freight kept to a minimum when parts are annealed, heat treated, coated or painted by local sources in relatively low volumes. Tooling, coating and heat treating sources are abundant in Northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
