IAP Worldwide Services increased its capabilities and the services available for clients when it acquired two entities in 2015. According to PRNewswire, IAPWS acquired Aberdeen-based, TCNS -Tactical Communications & Network Solutions business and DRS Technologies Inc., an Aviation and Logistics company in Oklahoma City. IAP Worldwide Services offers logistics, professional & technical services, and facilities management for a myriad of clients across the globe. With the acquisition of the two companies, IAP increased its solutions with options including aviation and communication technologies. The global logistics provider integrated the two entities into two units, the Aviation and Engineering, and the National Security Programs Unit.
Growth over the Years
The international services company has been in the logistics business for over 60 years and has handled projects of significant magnitude. Before IAPWS, there was Pan Am World Services that was responsible for the first space launch complex in America. The company developed and operated the Cape Canaveral complex and provided support for testing of over 2500 launches, and handled the facilities management, such as engineering services and airport master planning. Then came Johnson Controls Worldwide Services that became a leading provider of logistics for commercial facilities and military bases. By developing innovative solutions that were energy efficient, Johnson Controls grew its customer base exponentially, and it is how the company got into military services. When IAP Worldwide Services was founded as a specialized procurements and logistics business, it was contracted to provide generator supplies in Saudi Arabia for the US Army, and that is how it came to offer support for Operation Desert Storm.
Varied Client Base
Presently, IAPWS has over $370 million worth of government contracts as it maintains, manages, and operates military installations across the world. The company also has civilian clients who need help with various aspects of logistics. IAP sets up research laboratories, delivers technologies, infrastructure and equipment to commercial facilities, and disaster services. IAP Worldwide Services works on the mission of taking a client’s goals and turning them into its own; hence, delivering the best results.
IAP is led by CEO and Director, Douglas Kitani who is responsible for the strategic direction of the company. With 11 years as a pilot in the US Army, Kitani understands the various challenges that troops face; and therefore, knows how to structure effective solutions with the help of a highly-qualified leadership and board at IAP. By offering capabilities such as IT, communication, power, expeditionary infrastructure services, aviation, and engineering solutions, IAP has built a reputation as a reliable market leader.
