The Industrial & Commercial Development Corporation (ICDC) was established in 1954 under its own Act of Parliament Cap 445 of the Laws of Kenya. At that time, it was called IDC (Industrial Development Corporation) but the name was later changed to ICDC. With the events in that period of time indicating that the time of colonial rule was coming to an end, it was found necessary to create the Corporation for purposes of opening up the economy and placing it in indigenous hands post-independence.
