Embracing Challenge From Day One
We’ve been building the future since the very beginning. Learn how a group of pioneering companies evolved into today’s IAP - Ingenuity and Purpose.
Pan Am World Services, Inc. begins building and operating America’s first space launch complex base in Cape Canaveral, FL. The company supports testing for more than 2,500 launches, including early air-breathing missiles and the manned shuttle program.
Over the next 45 years, the company begins to provide full facilities maintenance support, including airport master planning, construction management and engineering services.
Johnson Controls, Inc. acquires Pan Am Services, Inc. forming Johnson Controls Worldwide Services Inc., becoming a global leader in the operations, maintenance and management of military bases and commercial facilities.
JCWS develops innovative new ways to increase energy efficiency while automating a facility’s environmental control, lighting, fire and security systems, and provides technical support and temporary personnel services for its growing customer base.
IAP is founded in Irmo, SC as a specialized logistics and procurement company. What started as a contract to provide generator supplies to the U.S. Army in Saudi Arabia turns into a company that proudly supports the nation’s troops during Operation Desert Storm.
Now a trusted partner with the U.S. military, IAP continues to win contracts for international procurement, as well as temporary and mobile power generation, emergency disaster relief and transportation services.
At the forefront of the industry, IAP holds government services contracts worth $370 million.
IAP acquires JCWS and its wholly-owned subsidiary Readiness Management Support (RMS) to form IAP Worldwide Services. Specializing in three lines of business — Global Operations and Logistics, Base Operations Support Services and Professional and Technical Services — the company builds on its reputation and experience to solve complex problems and respond to changes in our rapidly-evolving global environment.
IAP acquires G3 Systems Ltd., a British engineering company operating in the UK and overseas. G3 provides its government, commercial and international clients with a wide range of facilities, services and solutions, ranging from deployable, modular systems to fixed infrastructure and associated support services. G3 has the capability to design, deliver, operate and maintain equipment and facilities on a global basis, based upon its understanding and experience of operating in challenging locations and harsh environments.
