GRENADA — Ice Industries has completed all requirements for American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) certification to build Section VIII Division I Pressure Retaining Items under the “U” and “UM” certificates.
Ice’s Grenada Stamping and Assembly, located in Grenada, has been certified by ASME and the National Board to manufacture and make repairs or alternations to pressure-retaining items that have been previously certified by Ice or any other certified body.
Ice purchased air tank manufacturing assets from two companies, successfully relocating and installing them at its existing Grenada Stamping and Assembly facility, designated as a highly underutilized business zone (HUB Zone). With the assistance of the City of Grenada and the State of Mississippi, Ice renovated and equipped an existing campus building with these tank-manufacturing assets. The tank line resources and Ice’s newly renovated building are coupled with Ice’s certified welders to create a wide variety of pressure vessels.
Ice has been manufacturing air tanks to DOT, SAE J10 and FMVSS 121 specifications since the completion of the installation of these new lines, and has expanded its potential customer base with automotive, military, aerospace, medical/dental and heavy vehicle customers.
“We are very pleased with the response from our existing and targeted customers who have a growing need for a highly capable air tank supplier in the South. Ice has a heritage of pressure vessel competencies; producing products that require exacting quality standards, manufacturing processes, welding, and leak testing,” said Paul Bishop, Ice’s president.
