When considering starting a business in 1978, Frank Crossland wanted to seize the opportunity of making a living doing something that would improve the quality of life for his fellow man. His desire was to use his extensive career experience in the Water Analyzer and Process Controls Field to improve living environments by measuring the quality of the water we drink and the air we breathe. And so began IC Controls in 1979. We have now grown to the point where we research, design, manufacture and service our own brand of water Analyzers, Sensors and Chemicals, as well as private label manufacture for others. We are proud to be part of a business that helps to improve the quality of water and the quality of life for people around the world.

IC Controls is proud to have been in business as a Canadian manufacturer supplying the international market with advanced electrochemical water analysis equipment, sensors, and standards for over 35 years. Since our founding in 1979, we have evolved to specialize our offerings in the areas of pH, conductivity, ORP, dissolved oxygen, chlorine, and boiler water analysis equipment for industry. Design, research and development, and manufacturing all take place at our head office located in Orangeville, Ontario, Canada.

The IC Controls corporate objective is to make our living while benefiting the global environment by improving the quality of life for all with whom we do business. We strive to provide real solutions that both improve our living environment by measuring the purity of water and make your work easier.
