COMMEMORATIVES: ISCO Industries Celebrates 50 Years in Business

ISCO Industries, a Louisville, Ky.-based and family-owned pipe supplier and custom manufacturer of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) piping products, is celebrating 50 years in business this year.

ISCO was founded in 1962 by the late Jim Kirchdorfer, Sr. as an irrigation supply company, supplying mainly golf course irrigation systems. Kirchdorfer, Sr. began the business out of the back room of his father?s hardware store in Louisville. Today, the company is still headquartered in the same location.

In the 1970s, ISCO began supplying high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe to the golf and water/sewer industries, eventually expanding into more markets. By the 1980s, ISCO streamlined its product offerings and expanded sales into the industrial market, as well as adding a fabrication plant for HDPE fittings. In the 1990s and 2000s, ISCO further grew its business through several acquisitions and by opening new facilities. In 2004, ISCO was honored with a presidential visit from George W. Bush to discuss the value of American business.

Over the years, ISCO Industries has expanded and evolved into a global piping solutions company with more than 25 facilities around the world. ISCO now supplies high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe; custom fabricates HDPE piping products such as fittings, manholes, geothermal vaults and more; and rents, sells and refurbishes McElroy fusion equipment worldwide for a variety of markets.

?It is the people of ISCO who drive the business,? said CEO James Kirchdorfer. ?It?s the people who form relationships with our customers and add value to the products and services we offer. It is also the people who lead the innovation, and the creativity of the people, that fuels our progress and growth.?
