What Others are Saying

“ICA is a crucial partner inside our industry. Their constant involvement in improving the overall quality and reputation of our industry is simply invaluable.”
John Roush, CEO, Express Wash Concepts & Managing Partner, Moo Moo Express Car Wash

“ICA's advocacy for both its member companies and for vehicle owners is making a real difference in the automotive industry as vehicle manufacturers become aware of the impact of ADAS technology on car wash operation. After a concerted communication effort, we are now seeing the first vehicle designs incorporating a car wash mode function that sets the vehicle for the car wash at the push of a button.”
Derek Kaufman, Managing Partner, Schwartz Advisors

“ICA has been a primary partner to car wash owners and suppliers for the last 50+ years. Our trade association is unique compared to other industries in that the owners and suppliers share authority in the management, which has allowed us to blossom over the last decade. ICA has provided a venue for networking, new product development, improved management skills, and data gathering, all of which we rely on to grow our business.”
Brian Krusz, Founder, Sgt. Clean’s Car Wash
