ISCO has a long history of recognizing and building on opportunity. In 1962, founder Jim Kirchdorfer, Sr. was running his family’s hardware store on the corner of a neighborhood in the heart of Louisville, KY when he recognized a need and developed a solution. A long-time devotee to the game of golf, he was able to parlay his love of the game into a business specializing in underground golf course irrigation. He named the venture the Irrigation Supply Co. (ISCO). By 1975, he learned of a new product that would revolutionize the piping industry. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) was relatively new on the market, but already proving to be a more reliable, longer-lasting material compared to other options.

Since then, Mr. Kirchdorfer’s sons Jimmy and Mark have taken over the reins. ISCO has grown into a global piping solutions provider with more than 30 facilities across Canada and the United States. What do we mean by solutions? Well, we’ve developed and honed our custom fabrication and spooling ability. Our mechanics, fabricators, and technicians have decades of experience making HDPE structures such as manholes, tanks, fittings, geothermal vaults, and more. ISCO also makes sure every project has the right equipment by selling and renting tools and fusion equipment. We’re proud to serve a long and growing list of markets including municipal, waterworks, landfill, marine, golf, geothermal, industrial, energy, EPC, and more.
