About us

  • a transport box
  • a mobile warehouse
  • the shell of a mobile industrial plant
  • a swimming pool
  • a children's playground
  • a garage or a tiny house

and much more.

Today, these are our core competences

Containers—flexible and transportable

In the late 1970s, the transport industry was revolutionized by the introduction of standardized containers. When iCON was founded around 30 years later, this process was ongoing and continues to offer new innovations all the time. To this day, there are constantly new variants and possible uses for the convertible boxes. They always have one thing in common: fast realization combined with high flexibility thanks to transportability and worldwide availability. Whether we’re talking mobile warehouse, transport container, individual room solutions or transportable industrial plant—the possibilities are nearly limitless.

Solutions for every need

Our work is dedicated to our customers, for whom we passionately give our best every day. We are driven by the idea of finding a tailor-made solution for every challenge, best suited to that specific requirement. We use innovation to replace standard solutions with more efficient options while remaining true to our principles at all times.

Strategic long-term partnerships

We assume social responsibility internally and externally, both for our employees and our suppliers and service partners. We are convinced that only a permanently fair, loyal and responsible form of cooperation can be our company’s basis to fulfill its role in society. Our success is built on the fact that we develop our partnerships strategically and for the long term. The resulting trust and reliability allow us to make quick and binding decisions. This enables us to face constant change and new daily situations as quickly as possible and react appropriately.

Flexibility, curiosity, innovation, trust, solidarity and confidence define our work and us. From the founding of our company to the present day.
