Isselmere Motor Works (IMW), the United Kingdom of Isselmere-Nieland's largest automobile manufacturer, came to the broader world's notice as the producer of marine engines for the Royal Shipyards of Isselmere-Nieland. IMW subsequently opened its own storefront offering a wide selection of armoured vehicles, from the L12 tracked amphibious assault vehicle to the L27 heavy self-propelled howitzer.

Headquartered in Thistlemoor in northwest Isselmere, the privately-owned, publicly-listed firm currently has a branch plant in Russkya to assist in the manufacture of vehicles and weapons systems for the Russkyan Army.
