IAP Worldwide Services embarked on its growth strategy by announcing the acquisition of two firms in November 2015. The company bought DRS Technologies’ Tactical Communications & Network Solution business (TCNS) and Aviation & Logistics (A&L) business, which are based in Aberdeen and Oklahoma City respectively. TCNS offers communication, information technology and engineering solutions to the United States Department of Defense and different agencies. A&L provides logistical services and aircraft repair services to various institutions. IAP Worldwide Services intends to integrate all the strengths and capabilities of the acquired businesses in order to enhance its growth strategy.
The acquired firms were integrated to a single unit called Aviation & Engineering Solutions, and the existing National Security Programs Unit of IAP. IAP Worldwide’s CEO, Doug Kitani, said that courtesy of the acquisition, the company would expand its service offing to different agencies. In addition, IAP would double its addressable market. Doug posited that the support of IAP Worldwide’s investors and board was clearly demonstrated in the acquisition of the two businesses. He added that the company’s consistent devotion to serve its customers saw them establish a strategy for organic growth early in 2015. The strategy was to be accomplished through lean operations, innovations in the major government section, customer-focused discipline and inorganic growth. The only way to achieve this objective was through acquiring companies that identify with IAP Worldwide’s vision and mission.
