2004
The Maskell-Robbins branches in Tucson, AZ, and Salt Lake City, UT are purchased by ISCO. In February, ISCO hosted then President George W. Bush with nearly 60 employees looking on, in a discussion about the economy in which he praised ISCO's steady growth and success over the past few years.

2006
ISCO continued its expansion by opening up new locations and distribution facilities across the country. One expansion included relocating its fabrication facility after 14 years of the downtown Louisville Chestnut Street location to the southwest industrial park of Louisville called Riverport. The facility was five times larger than ISCO’s previous facility and allowed for more fabricating, storage and shipping.

2006
Further expansion occurred into North America by opening up a facility in Alberta, Canada.

2007
In March, ISCO purchased Fraser Mining and Industrial Supply out of Mansfield, TX, which had a 10,000 square foot facility site on 10 acres of property located within the Dallas/Fort Worth area. ISCO also expanded internationally by opening a new facility in Brisbane, Australia.

2009
In January, ISCO acquired Wright Water and Waste in Solon, OH. This waterworks house helped ISCO to further diversify its products to customers.

2010
ISCO officially opened a new distribution facility in Martinsburg, WV, in February. With 55,000 square feet of space, this facility is now one of ISCO’s largest.

2010
ISCO received a registered trademark for the Circuit Maker Vault® on June 29.

2011
ISCO built and opened a new facility in Kingman, AZ, that serves as a distribution center for pipe, fittings and fusion equipment, as well as a manufacturing site for ISCO’s Snap-Tite product line and geothermal products. ISCO is named one of the “Best Places to Work in Kentucky.” ISCO also received the ASME N-type stamps for nuclear applications.

2012
ISCO added more space to the Riverport yard to meet increasing demand. Continuing on the path of investment, ISCO added three more locations, relocated a few existing locations to larger facilities and expanded others. The company receives ISO 9001:2008 certification for its management system.
