The ICO Products contract manufacturing business has been experiencing a steady growth in volume which has our manufacturing facility finding itself in need of additional space for upcoming projects and future growth. Our current facility in ShenZhen City, China is approximately 15,000 sq. ft..
Our estimates are that we will be requiring a 50,000 sq. ft. complex for our future expansion. We have been searching for a newer and larger space for our office, mold department, production, assembly, PCBA surface mounting line, QC and packaging departments. As our search narrows we expect to be announcing a final decision in the near future.
ICO Products will maintain the old site until all production lines are up and running so that there will be no lag in delivery or disruption in project deadlines. Thank you to all of our clients for your business, we appreciate the opportunity to work with you and the ability to increase our footprint in the contract manufacturing sector.
ICO Products is the proud manufacturer of the SteriPen Ultraviolet Bacteria and Pathogen Killing Water Wand. As the SteriPEN product explodes in popularity ICO Products continues to work with HPI to improve and expand the line of products and accessories to support the market demand.
Recently TIME Magazine selected SteriPEN to be included in their list of “All-TIME 100 Gadgets” – “the 100 greatest and most influential gadgets from 1923 to the present.” Previously SteriPEN was honored by TIME as one of the “Best Inventions” of 2001.
This year not only were SteriPEN water purifiers judged by Time editors and writers. Online readers of Time were allowed to participate in the voting and SteriPEN was still among the top vote-getters!
Not only was the SteriPEN list among the top 100 All-Time Gadgets, but as one of the top 25 Must Have Travel Gadgets.
Recently General Electric Appliances curtailed their pool of contract manufacturers and ICO Products was named as one of the final remaining 5 vendors. Our dedication and attention to detail has paid off as ICO Products has risen to the top of the short list of consistently reliable suppliers.
ICO Products has been working with GE as a contract manufacturer in the product development and prototype production for several years. The engineering staff at GE has recognized our capability of consistently delivering a professional service that is a major advantage in their new product development process. In doing so, we have been awarded vendor status as nearly 3 dozen companies were passed over. As a proud supplier of General Electric, we appreciate the opportunity to continue our solid relationship in years to come and would like to recognize our entire staff for their dedication and hard work for reaching this achievement.
