IHI Turbo America

IHI TURBO AMERICA (ITA), located in Shelbyville, Illinois is a wholly owned subsidiary of IHI Corp. of Japan. ITA designs, markets, manufactures and distributes turbocharger and supercharger products for internal combustion engine applications in North America.

IHI Turbo America was founded in 1980 as a licensee of IHI turbocharger technology to build a base of turbocharger business and manufacturing operations in North America. In 2004, IHI Turbo America expanded our capabilities to include screw superchargers.

IHI Turbo America is the only company in the world to mass produce screw superchargers. The IHI design has evolved over 30 years of screw compressor manufacturing and ITA has become the global center for the technology.

IHI Turbo America’s experienced staff designs and manufactures both turbochargers and superchargers under one roof. IHI Turbo America has produced over 2 Million turbochargers since 1984 and over 100,000 superchargers since 2004 in the Shelbyville IL facility.

IHI Turbo America has maintained a dedication to quality since the first RHB5 turbochargers were manufactured for Ford Motor Co. with a Q1 award in 1986. That quality commitment has continued with ISO9000, QS9000 and ISO9001:2008.
In addition to maintain quality, IHI Turbo America will make reasonable effort to prevent the use of conflict minerals, from the conflict region, in any of its products. All production suppliers are required to demonstrate that they are conflict mineral free (from the conflict region), or disclose the use of the conflict minerals and their origins.
