icon Mechanical: 25 Year Anniversary - Page 13

The New HQ

icon Mechanical christened its 25-year anniversary by breaking ground on a nearly 40,000 square-foot headquarters facility in September, 2020.

The new office is located adjacent to the company’s current headquarters building

in Granite City, IL, and triples the

size of the company's existing

space. The project is expected to be

complete in the summer, 2021.

“It’s exciting news for our

company,” said Jeff Rush,

President of icon Mechanical.

“Our capacity to expand our

offices by this degree reflects the

tremendous growth we’ve

experienced in recent years as

well as the anticipated growth to come.”

The new facility enables the company to further enhance its industry-leading technical capabilities with larger design spaces and state-of-the-art equipment. The office will also provide expanded, innovative work and leisure spaces for employees.

Sharing the Future

icon Mechanical announced the formation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 2020, enabling icon’s full-time employees to have an ownership stake in the company’s future.

Rush said he is enthused icon is in a position to provide this wealth-share benefit to employees and believes it will serve the organization well.

“This is a win-win for icon,” Rush said. “We are excited that our employees are now able to share in the prosperity of the company. This ownership role provides everyone in our organization a true, vested interest in ensuring every aspect and function of the firm is focused on success. That’s beneficial to icon and our clients.”

The company continues to be in growth mode and the future looks bright even in the face of current challenges, Rush said.
