33 YEARS IN THE MAKING
Industrial Control Concepts, Inc. began business in 1986 with 4 electrical engineering veterans from Anheuser-Busch’s corporate engineering group.
ICC’s original ties to the brewery sector remain strong, which is evident in our address in the shadow of the Saint Louis Gateway Arch.
To this day, St. Louis is considered a pioneering city among both beer lovers and brewery professionals alike.
Over the last three decades we have expanded our competency from specialized brewery expertise to a wider focus that encompasses additional industries with similar demands.
Building on a foundation of hundreds of successfully completed projects, ICC is further evolving from a mostly technical consultancy to a more strategically-minded engineering powerhouse.
In recent years, we’ve hired several international engineering experts to support this evolution. For instance, ICC now employs engineers and business strategists with experience from Danbrew – once a leading brewery consultancy renowned worldwide. These new additions to the staff also enable our clients to draw on the knowledge of experts who have worked on international projects for Coca-Cola, Carlsberg, Novo Nordisk, Heineken and Pfizer.
