About Us

Intra-Plant Maintenance Corporation (IPM Corp.) is an integrated engineering, construction / fabrication, and maintenance company. It was founded well over a quarter of a century ago by John LaReau who still maintains ownership.

We began by providing piping, structural, and mechanical service to the Central Illinois area. Industrial construction is still the core product but we have expanded from Central Illinois to the entire country and beyond.

We realized that lubrication management and implementation is a major problem in industry today, so we also now offer lubrication management and preventive maintenance services. We are associated with Generation Systems, the company with the best lubrication management program on the market, and now include this in our growing list of services. There is a PDF file about lubrication management on our page about lubrication and PM services.

We have built solid business relationships with several Fortune 500 companies across the United States; including companies such as Caterpillar, General Motors, Evonik Degussa Chemical, Keystone Steel and Wire, Valbruna / Slater Stainless, Bridgestone / Firestone, John Deere, Mitsubishi Motors, North American Stainless, Surface Combustion, Castrol, BMW, Subaru / Isuzu, Honda Motors, North American Stainless, and E.L. DuPont.

We believe these relationships have held strong over the years because we provide multi-faceted services in a timely and transparent nature. By initiating cost saving projects and providing beneficial, cost effective, streamlined processes, IPM Corp will help to improve any company’s global competitiveness. One of our favorite philosophies for the past, present and future is, “Whatever it takes!”

In today’s business environment, flexible staffing is critical to meeting performance objectives while maintaining budget guidelines. IPM Corp. can help meet rapidly changing personnel needs. We provide staffing solutions, including engineering, project management, supervision, administrative, and support for construction, installation, mechanical maintenance, and general laborers. Our existing workforce consists of safe, well-trained and qualified individuals that have the flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing needs of today’s industry.

Our value to the client is the ability to establish any of these staffing needs without performance interruption and with responsibility, by relieving the burden of human resource management and payroll processing.

In addition to program management and manpower solutions, IPM Corp. can also meet any demands of construction, fabrication and installation of equipment and/or structure. We have our own fabrication facility in East Peoria, Illinois which allows our clients to have equipment “made to order.” Equipped with a 10-ton overhead crane, paint booth, and tool and die shop; this 20,000 square foot facility has the capability of making almost any project. No project is too large or too small. We employ only the finest craftsmen in each trade and this experienced staff prides itself by meeting and exceeding all expectations. All work is completed with quality precision; efficiently and economically.

The strengths and reputation of IPM Corp. are the result of mature management, experienced professionals, highly skilled field and service personnel, and most importantly, a strong commitment to providing our clients with quality service.

You can be assured that IPM Corp. will always meet and exceed your expectations. It is our intent to provide you with professional service in a timely manner. We like to say, “We specialize in building relationships!”
