MCFA/Jungheinrich® celebrate grand opening of ICOTEX facility

Friday, August 4, 2017

Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich® lift trucks and narrow aisle products in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and Jungheinrich® Lift Truck Corp., celebrated the successful grand opening of a new joint venture, Industrial Components of Texas, LLC (ICOTEX®). Located at 3479 Pollok Dr. in Conroe, Texas, ICOTEX’s new 71,000-square-foot facility will manufacture industrial components.

Nearly 200 attendees joined the grand opening celebration, including executives from Mitsubishi Nichiyu Forklift Co. Ltd., MCFA and Jungheinrich AG, as well as ICOTEX employees, town officials and other key colleagues and supporters. The event included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and facility tours, showcasing ICOTEX’s new state-of-the-art equipment used in the manufacturing process. The factory’s capabilities include plasma cutting, bending, machining, welding, powder coating and more.

ICOTEX is projected to employ approximately 80 people in the future, including manufacturing and office personnel. The facility will produce forklift components, which will be supplied to MCFA for use in MCFA’s Houston manufacturing plant.

“The inauguration of our new ICOTEX facility is a significant milestone for both MCFA and Jungheinrich,” said Reinhild Kuehne, president of ICOTEX. “Both businesses have a long history of continuous improvement and customer focus along with a strong business relationship. This new facility will allow us to continue to deliver high-quality components while improving forklift manufacturing lead times for our customers.”

The benefit is an uninterrupted supply of forklift components, and therefore faster production and delivery of forklifts built on MCFA’s Houston campus, just 50 miles from ICOTEX’s factory in Conroe.
