About IEC Thermo

About IEC Thermo

IEC Thermo is the world’s leader in hemp drying solutions. We have been providing and manufacturing industrial scale, continuous feed dryers since 2009, with multiple successful projects in the dairy, poultry, and wood pellet industries. Prior to that, we engaged in process engineering work with Feeco International and Allis Chalmers (which was acquired by Svedala and then Metso Minerals), working to further hone the developmental and process technologies in use today. The culmination of these experiences led to the design and installation of the first large scale hemp dryer for GenCanna in 2016. As long-time leaders in the hemp drying industry, we have more drying experience than anyone else in the biomass market space, and we look forward to working to make your drying project a profitable endeavor.

The Mission

IEC Thermo’s mission is to responsibly bring commercial-scale sensibilities and capabilities to a market traditionally bound to small scale laboratories.

The People

IEC was formed by a number of industry leaders looking for new and better ways to apply technology for developing industries. We represent the culmination of over 50 years of experience as applied by some of the world’s leading companies in process equipment design.
