The companies that provide logistics and procurement are many, but not all have enjoyed the level of success that IAP Worldwide is getting. This company has been in operation since 1953, and the success of the dealings they partake in has seen it become the preferred partner of the American Military in many of their operations. The company has grown through leaps and bounds to become what it is today.
Perhaps the success of the company came from the projects that started it off from the early stages. The first of the contracts they got was to make the Space Launch Complex on iapws.com in Florida. This is a project that was a huge success and which has supported the launch of 2500 space shuttles and air breathing missiles. The success of the project is what gave them the momentum they needed to get into other projects such as air pathways planning, managing construction sites and engineering services.
In the 90’s, IAP was acquired by Johnson Controls. This is what changed the name of the company from the initial Pam Am world services.
IAP got a breakthrough when they were contracted by the federal government to aid the provision of generator supplies to the US troops that were taking part in operation desert storm. After the massive success of the troops in the operation, they became a favorite of the military in the provision of these services.
Other projects that have been awarded to them recently include the creation of the Afghan air traffic control systems on Hoovers. The amount of risk that came with the project is what made the success so amazing. The project, which was completed by July has led to the civilians controlling their own air traffic pathways, which had not happened since the war started.
The projects that they have been carrying out for the military include the generation of mobile power, international procurement, transportation service provision and disaster management in times of emergency. In order to improve their service delivery, IAP Worldwide acquired two smaller companies from DRS. The two are now known as the engineering department of the company and have already started being contracted for high end engineering project management. The rate at which the company is growing is impressive, and it shows that for them, the sky is just a stepping stone.
