Intake Screens, Inc. (ISI) has been delivering quality and innovative screen projects since 1996. ISI provides complete project and product services including engineering design, manufacturing, fabrication, installation, and maintenance. ISI’s design and fabrication facility, located in Sacramento, CA, has delivered intake screens systems throughout the U.S. and across the globe.
ISI’s success is based on a long family history of entrepreneurial creativity, out-of-the-box thinking, and a commitment to delivering the highest quality product as a fair price. Russ Berry III, founder of ISI, built the first self-cleaning intake screens on a ranch in north central Nebraska. Seeing the great potential for a product that could solve suction related problems, he started manufacturing them in 1979. In 1990, he sold Plum Creek Mfg. to the Claude Laval Corporation. In 1996, Russ formed ISI to develop custom industrial screens specifically for fish protection that could be used in demanding river environments. In 1999, Russ’ son, Russell Berry IV, became involved in all aspects of the business, developing a comprehensive array of skill sets and abilities that he continues to build on and leverage today as the company President. ISI’s staff also includes skilled engineers, fabricators, and certified welders that tackle the most difficult custom design and fabrication projects as a regular course of business.
Customers such as municipal water agencies, public utility districts, electrical generators, desalination developers, consulting engineering firms, irrigation districts, golf courses and farmers have all benefited from choosing ISI’s durable and efficient intake screens. ISI screens have successfully protected pumping operations from debris and biofouling and provided wildlife protection that meets the requirements of the most stringent environmental regulatory agencies.
ISI’s achievements have been recognized by NOAA Fisheries by receiving the Environmental Stewardship Award for Innovations in Fish Protection.
