Specialist Fields

IVCC was incorporated as a private limited company in August 1958 and is celebrating its Golden Jubilee during 2007-2008.  It is a pioneer of the drilling industry in Pakistan.

Starting from its first modest drilling contract, IVCC established an enviable reputation in the drilling industry of Pakistan in short span of five years.  The early sixties saw the execution of the Indus Basin Replacement Projects in Pakistan.  It had drilling assignments in every one of its major components.  At Mangla and Tarbela Dams, IVCC carried out large volumes of drilling, site investigation, soil mechanics tests, grouting and other specialist works.  The seventies were years of consolidation and saw the induction of a new generation of the founding family into the business.  The first international contract was obtained.  At home the company was firmly established as an innovative organisation committed to providing the very latest in equipment and know how to its continuously expanding list of clients.

The eighties and nineties have seen IVCC moving into other specialised fields and transforming its-self from a drilling company itno a specialist civil engineering company.  Heavy investments in equipment and logistic resources coupled with computerisation and adoption of modern mangement concepts has placed IVCC in the ranks of international specialist companies of repute.  The family's third generation, educated and trained in the USA, is with IVCC and the company has entered the twenty first century  with enthusiasm and confidence.

Technical Association

To acquire a firm technical base and technology, IVCC was associated in its formative years with Messrs Geostrazivanja of Yugoslavia and Messrs Craelius A.B. of Sweden.  Later, it entered into a long association of about ten years with the Cementation Company Ltd., of U.K. In 1974 Cementation Company wound up business in Pakistan and transferred most of its equipment and staff to IVCC.

IVCC's experience of working with American, Australian, British, Bulgarian, Canadian, Chinese, Czechoslovakian, French, German, Italian, Iraqi, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Yugoslavian, and Pakistani consultants and contractors has given it professional insight into the latest international technology and familiarity with the various international standards, codes of practice and specifications.

In Pakistan IVCC is registered as a Class "A" (No Limit) contractor  with the Pakistan Engineering Council and all the important government agencies for all types of civil engineering works. Internationally, IVCC has executed contracts in Nigeria and Iraq.

Management & Personnel

The management team at IVCC consists of top flight engineers and managers with vast technical and administrative experience.  Its senior staff is well versed in modern business mangement techniques, holding diplomas in advanced management.

Due to the specialised nature of its work, IVCC runs inhouse training programmes for its lower and middle level technicians.  On-the-job-training is imparted to apprentices who on successful completion of training are absorbed in the regular cadre.  Rarely do trained apprentices leave the company's service and the vast majority of technicians have been with IVCC for ten years or more.
