Our History

Kevin Detrick, founder and President of ICS, was not satisfied with the computerized management and control systems that were available for his own car wash. Convinced that technology could improve the profitability of his own car wash, and for all car wash operators, he founded ICS in 1988.

Over the course of the next 30 years ICS pioneered numerous technology-based innovations for the car wash industry, including: Tunnel Master, an integrated tunnel controller and point-of-sale management system (1988), the first gated Express car wash (2001), the first payment terminal with cash dispensing (2004), and most recently, the development of Washnetics, the science of automating the car wash process (2017).

Now, 31 years later, Kevinís original goal is unchanged: to provide all car wash operators with improved profitability through the application of advanced technology.
