Professionals are human, too. This year for our EASA video production, instead of telling you more of what you already know and expect from us - impeccable quality, reliability, expertise - we thought we'd let you get to know some of our people just a little better... unscripted, unprompted.
ICC International was once again a sponsor of the Blount Habitat for Humanity Women Build Luncheon. The theme this year was Construction Couture. All teams were challenged to build an outfit using at least 50% construction material. Our team design featured Lowe's house wrap as the base, a beautiful skirt made with over 1000 steel and plastic washers, copper belt and a sawblade and steel plume fascinator. The accessories included halogen bulb earrings, a drawer pull ‘diamond’ ring, and a charm bracelet complete with wingnuts, bolts and nuts. To complete the ensemble, we included a house key necklace.
The ICC team thanks everyone who participated in helping "build" this masterpiece of a dress. Even guys who weren't officially on the team jumped in to help and we appreciate the support, our dress was certainty a show stopper.
ICC also wants to thank Tracy Queen, our General Manager who wore our beautiful (but heavy) dress and raised nearly $2000 on her own to support the Women Build Luncheon.
This is one of ICC’s favorite charities to support and we’re already looking forward to 2019. Congratulations Blount Habitat on another successful event!
It was a great day at the ballpark yesterday! ICC treated all employees and their families to a Smokies Baseball game complete with a ball cap, beer and Calhoun's buffet. It was great to see everyone outside the shop and we hope you enjoyed the afternoon.

Have you ever been one quarter short? Sure, we've all been there. Digging deep into your pockets, shaking your purse to one side looking for every last bit of change to pay for something. Then all you come up with is lint.... Well, not today.
This week's acts of kindness was at a locally owned laundromat. We thought wouldn't it be a great surprise to anyone who needed to wash clothes today to walk in and there the machines were already full of money. So that's what we did! With our pockets full of quarters, we filled up machine after machine, I think we filled nearly every washer, and had money left over to buy some soap and dryer sheets.
And thank you to the kind gentleman working at the laundromat who allowed us to run around and fill the machines. :)
There's one gentleman that deserves a huge thank you from us. His name is Warren and he keeps our facility nice and clean week in and week out. He comes to work after hours so we didn't get his photo but we heard from our 2nd shift crew that Warren was quite tickled and proudly showing off his treats. Thank you again Warren for all your hard work!
You may not need us to build a 12-foot commutator, but isn't it good to know we can?
It takes a total commitment to quality and broad experience to build the big commutators. 35 years in the business means we apply this to every comm we build, no matter the size. Our building process.
This week we decided to surprise our mail carriers and shipping companies. We depend on the carriers to deliver our products safe and sound to our customers. Many times the drivers had to come a long way and have a long return drive. So over the course of a week, we gave all the pickup and delivery drivers a bag of treats for the road.
3/35 - Acts of Kindness.
Have you ever felt so happy and yet sad all at the same time? This week ICC made goodie bags for residents of Asbury Place. The look on their faces when we popped in their rooms was priceless, our hearts exploded with joy. So many people in retirement communities have no one to visit with them. We can't forget about the generation that brought us into the world. A smiling face and a few minutes of time are all they want. Thank you, Asbury and Amy Wilson, for allowing us to visit. We feel blessed to have met these kind residents of our community.
Over the last week, we've been collecting donations for the Blount County Humane Society. Today, Johnny our QC Technician and Laura our CEO surprised the volunteers at the shelter with a trunk load of cat/dog food, treats, toys, towels, and litter. This no-kill shelter runs solely on donations and is grateful for any and all help. They have the cutest and most friendly kitties and puppies...we almost ended up with an office kitty.
You know the expression 'if it's not broken, don't fix it.” Well, it doesn't hold true 100% of the time. Below are bars from two v-ring comms, one that didn't break (but dangerously close) and one that did. In the first photo, the bar width under the brushes started at 3/4 inch wide and is now only 1/8 inch. In the 2nd photo, you can see where the bar wore so thin it broke right at the dovetail. While getting the most life out a comm is optimal running the bars this low can result in any number of failures. As you very well know, routine field maintenance and inspections are critically important.
Our first Act of Kindness was a success! We secretly bought several people coffee and snacks at The Vienna Coffeehouse. We had so much fun watching people's reactions as they were told a local company took care of their tab. The best part was when it created a chain reaction and several people started buying someone else's order. It does a heart good to spread kindness even with the smallest gesture. All the feels all around! Thank you, Vienna for helping us spread the kindness. :) #Randomactsofkindness#Maryville
ICC turns 35 this year, and we needed a way to celebrate. Party? Too easy... Logo?
Okay, but… Banners? Too showy…
The incredible staff at ICC came up with the perfect solution; one that gets everyone involved in making our 35th year our best ever, at every possible level. We are dubbing 2018 as the “Year of Kindness!” and throughout the year we will perform 35 Acts of Kindness that stretch community and company-wide. As part of our company culture, we believe it’s important to give back to the community where we live, play and work. So keep a lookout for our ICC employees. You’ll find us delivering surprises, picking up litter and collecting donations. We invite everyone to join us as we pass it forward, because there can never be too much kindness in this world.
- Laura Lyke, President & CEO
Congratulation Jay Bush on your 20-year service award.
For more than 35 years, ICC has been manufacturing commutators and slip rings that power machines around the world. Committed to the highest of values, ICC pushes the boundaries and continues to strive to maintain our position as the most reliable commutator and slip ring manufacturer in the electric motor industry.
Jay, we acknowledge and appreciate that the foundation of our success is built upon YOU and your commitment to ICC International. Thank you for not only your years of service but a job well done. You lead a strong steadfast team we can rely on day in and day out. We would be amiss if not to thank your family for their support as well. Your selfless work ethic often has you working overtime and weekends. We understand and appreciate the sacrifice.
Congratulations on your 20 Years of Service! You have reached an important milestone at ICC. Thank you for the many years of service and dedication to making our mission a reality every day for each of our customers.
Spending time with family and friends is what the holidays are all about. At ICC we were fortunate that we could get ahead of the production schedule and extend an extra day of paid vacation to all employees. Here we are enjoying our company Christmas party before the extended holiday. We hope each and everyone enjoyed themselves and had a restful holiday season.
Everyone looks forward to the annual potluck lunch. We received our Christmas bonus and new coats! Thank you Laura and Shawn for your gracious generosity. We have a great, family- oriented team, who can really cook, our bellies and hearts are full. And for extra fun Lana 'elfed' all the employees!
Finish the year strong. There's still time to repair that motor and get it back in the hands of your client by the first of January!
ICC is running full speed through the month of December to ensure every client receives their comms and slip rings.
We can manage your tight deadlines, even on straight time and regardless of holidays.
