Cellulose Sponge Manufacturer/Converter

Welcome to Industrial Commercial Supply

A Distribution Results, Inc. Company

ICS Sponge
Industrial Commercial Supply (ICS for short) has been a world leader in cellulose sponge fabrication for over 30 years. More recently, we completed a substantial investment project in plant, property, equipment, and expertise to become the world leader in the custom fabrication of compressed cellulose sponge products.

What is Cellulose? Cellulose is plant material (often wood pulp). Cellulose is found in the cell walls of all plants and is the most abundant organic compound in the world. This quality makes our products are very "Green" and eco-friendly. Cellulose sponge is biodegradable and can easily be returned to the soil after the useful life of the product. Unlike other cleaning materials, cellulose sponge can also be used multiple times before being discarded. As a cellulose sponge manufacturer, our cellulose sponge products and our compressed sponge products have a great story to tell regarding sustainability. Click here for more information on the sustainability of our products.

ICS purchases sponge raw material from leading manufacturers around the world with most of our raw material coming from the USA. The sponge is received in large, pallet sized "blocks" of material which we custom fabricate it into a wide variety of products designed and marketed by our worldwide customer base. We have various machinery used to cut, dry, compress and package the product. Think of ICS as your cellulose sponge supplier and compressed sponge manufacturer who can make your product ideas a reality.

Spanning Several Markets and Industries.

Some of the markets we serve include the following.

Advertising Specialty

We typically sell product in compressed sponge sheet form to printers/fabricators who print advertising or political messages on the compressed sponge material creating a high-impact marketing message. Advertisers like the "Wow" factor of how compressed sponge pops up to normal thickness when the end user adds water. It is a unique and interesting advertising medium.  We do not print on sponge, but we have customers we can refer you to that do so.

Cosmetic

Health spas are very popular across the world. Compressed sponge products are used for makeup removal and various other face and body treatments. We sell our products to distributors who serve this market and have a Master Distributor who can service all your cosmetic product needs.  We can die cut specific shapes and sizes and even do custom packaging.

Soldering

Compressed sponge and non-compressed sponge have long been used by the electronics manufacturing market as an accessory to clean the tip of a soldering gun. We sell to distributors and manufacturers who serve this market niche.

Industrial Cleaning

In many cases, a particular industrial cleaning application may require a certain size and shape to the sponge other than what you might find in the grocery store. We fill the need for these special applications, making sponge in every imaginable size and shape.  Many industrial cleaning applications are moving towards compressed sponge due to less expensive shipping, unlimited shelf life, storage space savings and many other advantages offered by a dried and compressed sponge.

Janitorial Cleaning

Like the industrial cleaning market, we serve the need of a special size, shape, or color of sponge material and, of course can offer all the advantages of compressed sponge for this application.

Education and Art

Cellulose sponge is used in a variety of educational and art related applications. It has long been known as a safe and useful product within educational and art markets. Kids and artists seem to be particularly interested in creative ways to work with compressed sponge.

Laboratory

Again, our capability to provide a size, shape and color fit for the intended niche application makes us a favorite for distributors and manufacturers who serve the lab and science markets.

Retail and consumer markets

As more people are learning about the "green and ECO friendly" capabilities of compressed cellulose sponge, we are beginning to see demand at the retail, consumer level for our compressed sponge as an alternative to other cleaning solutions that may not be as re-usable and biodegradable.  You will find that many of our compressed sponge products are offered on Amazon for a wide variety of niche markets.

Biocide Free compressed sponge market

Compressed sponge is an important component used in various microbiology and quality control applications. We provide biocide free compressed sheets and fabricated parts to companies who manufacture products used by quality control personnel in the food, dairy and beverage industries. These products are at work every day helping to insure a safe and clean consumer food supply.

We service some of the above markets directly for large volume orders and work with many distributors who can provide personal service for smaller volumes in their respective niche markets.
