HVMC & IC Engineering

Turnkey Services

High Value Manufacturing Consulting and Japan’s IC Engineering Corporation have joined together to provide turnkey engineering solutions to North American manufacturers. The partnership will combine HVMC’s New Business Development with ICE’s Best in Class Project Based Engineering Services.

Founded in 1994 as a joint venture between Isuzu Motors Limited and Chiyoda Corporation, ICE specializes in automotive “turnkey” engineering services on an international basis. Today, ICE is majority owned by a large construction and engineering company located in Takamatsu, Japan.

Through this joint partnership,  they will help U.S. based manufacturers expand more efficiently and effectively utilizing Best in Class Japanese project based engineering.

As manufacturing labor resource shortages continue, both companies agree this partnership will help manufacturers to remain globally competitive.

The program will offer a variety of services from the start-up of new facilities to the expansion of established manufacturing plants. These services include but are not limited to:


  • Feasibility Studies
  • Project Planning
  • Process and Product Simulation
  • Process Design
  • Layout Design
  • Equipment Procurement
  • Equipment Installation
  • Production Launch Support

Japanese Engineering meets American Ingenuity

With pressing demand to expand North American manufacturing, companies are looking to outsource both individual and turnkey engineering support. By strengthening and growing America’s manufacturers we will create long term sustainability.
