Ice Industries Grenada, located in Grenada, Mississippi, to significantly increase US-based, one-stop stamping, welding, and painting processes.
SYLVANIA, Ohio – April 4, 2022 – Ice Industries (Ice) has announced that additional contracts for the supply of large outdoor machine enclosures have been secured and will add a considerable amount of employment to its Grenada, Mississippi facility.
To secure this new enclosure business, Ice is investing more than $4 million and is adding new paint capabilities, expanding its existing capacity to encompass powder coating for both steel and aluminum enclosures. Ice is also upgrading its large-format tandem stamping press lines as well to accommodate this considerable increase in production.
“In this difficult supply chain environment, customers continue to look for United States based supply chain options that reduce the number of suppliers in their supply chain. Ice’s ability to stamp, weld, and paint all in one location provides a cost-effective and dependable integrated supplier,” said Howard Ice, Chairman and CEO of Ice Industries.
Ice Industries has previously participated in the HVACR enclosure market in meaningful ways, having supplied steel enclosures to its customers. “This is a new and significant opportunity for Ice to support any OEM requiring painted exterior machine enclosures for various industries,” summarized Mr. Ice.
Over the course of the next year, Ice will be adding more than 120 personnel to support this operation’s launch, slated to begin in the third quarter of 2022. Hiring of general laborers, supervisors, material handlers, maintenance, accounting, and operations associates has begun. Please contact Melissa Acy at 662-657-2041 or the website contact form at http://www.iceindustries.com/en/manufacturing/contact-us/ for hiring information.
