1912 - 1989
The International Malleable Iron Company (IMICO) manufactured malleable grey and ductile iron castings in Guelph. IMICO was an iron foundry opened in 1912 by the Carver family, which had emigrated from England and later settled in Canada and the United Stated.
The IMICO plant was located at 200 Beverley Street in Guelph and occupied a 7.5 acre site. IMICO produced custom sand casting molded products for the automotive, rail, agricultural and energy sectors.
By 1947, IMICO employed 500 employees. In 1988, IMICO had sales of approximately $20 million to $25 million and employed 250 workers.
IMICO declared bankruptcy and abandoned the Beverley Street site in 1989. With the plant closure, two hundred and thirty workers lost their jobs. The contaminated site was sold by IMICO's American parent company to a local business man for a dollar.
