Archie Reeves was president of Highland Park State Bank when it made a loan to a chrome plating business. When the business defaulted, Mr. Reeves assumed ownership in 1963. ICP Industries was formed in 1966. Mr. Reeves died in 1990 and Gary Smith became president. The company started providing chrome and cylinder repair for the airline industry, railroad industry, and currently for the natural gas drilling and pipeline industry.
ICP Industries is a limited liability company registered in Texas that repairs and applies
chrome to power cylinders for the natural gas industry. We do offer contracts that
guarantee our work according to customer specifications. Our cylinder work can be seen
in natural gas engines that are drilling worldwide; in addition, to the pipelines running
across five continents.
ICP Industries was formed by Archie Reeves in 1966 after changing business names
multiple times in the 1960's since his original purchase in 1963. Colonel Archie Reeves
purchased the plant in 1963 after the previous owner lost his contract with the aircraft
industry and moved the company strategy to chrome plate the power cylinders for the
railroad engines. In 1990 Colonel Archie Reeves passed away and Gary Smith became
president. Under Gary's leadership ICP Industries has moved to power cylinders for
natural gas combustible engines.
