About Innovative Composite Engineering

History/Background:
ICE was founded in White Salmon, WA, in 1990. Its mission, to develop composite technologies and
processes, has led to multiple high-volume manufacturing opportunities. ICE is best known for its line of
windsurfing masts marketed under the NoLimitz brand name. NoLimitz is the highest visibility area of ICE,
especially locally, but far from all we do here. In fact, NoLimitz masts are actually a very small slice of the pie.
ICE manufactures advanced composite products for many customers—most in the aerospace, industrial, or
recreational industries. Our capabilities range from table-rolled tubing to complex molded components. ICE
often works with its customers to engineer solutions for their needs, and then moves these prototypes into
volume production. Currently, ICE manufactures a diverse range of parts for a broad customer base, including
components for the oil and gas industry, surveying equipment, UAV aircraft for Boeing/Insitu, furniture for Polo
Ralph Lauren, and automotive components, to name just a few. ICE is the leader in its field and continues to
grow and prosper. We are constantly developing new markets and products driven by our customers' needs.

What ICE does:
ICE specializes in the engineering and fabrication of composite (carbon fiber and fiberglass) parts utilizing prepreg materials. Pre-preg is a heat activated, dry material. The wet resins or toxic fumes usually associated
with composite production are not used here. The materials and production technology ICE uses are
expensive, but they make the highest quality products available. We take great pride in the products we
produce and the support we give our customers. It feels good knowing the part you built just launched into
space or helped win the America's Cup. Every single person at ICE is a critical team member leading to the
success of not just ICE but to our customers' success and the nation as a whole.
