Trevor Darrall, founder of the company and current CEO, set up ICONSYS as an engineering service provider offering design and commissioning expertise in multi drive applications predominately to the metals industry, working out of a modest 300sq ft. converted barn in rural Shropshire.

Today, ICONSYS has grown to be recognised as one of the UK’s leading system integrators, operating from a modern prestigious 20,000sq ft. manufacturing facility. Over the years ICONSYS have grown and the experience gained across a diverse range of industry sectors has enabled them to successfully design, install and deliver complex full turnkey automation projects for some of the UK’s largest blue chip companies.  They can rightly call ourselves an internationally-established company as their staff continue to travel to all corners of the world on a variety of differing engineering projects. 

The future, they never stand still; always looking at what is new to assist all stakeholders.  Their ability to deliver successful small scale systems to large complex multiple platform solutions, by embracing advancements in technology using the latest digital developments in the horizontal power train and vertical automation and IT platforms, has stood them in good stead and ahead of the competition.  They are always looking to provide the highest quality of work by investing in their employees; with the majority of their engineers holding a professionally recognised certification IET/TUV.

Many of the values and principles set out when the company first started, still run true to this day.  Those values are built on the philosophy of; superior quality, on time and to budget.

From this favourable position they can look forward to celebrating the next 30 years.
