IAP acquires DRS Technologies’ business units
As part of its long-term development strategy, IAP Worldwide has integrated two of DRS Technologies’ business units to form, Aviation and Engineering Solution. DRS Technologies’ business units include A&L located in Oklahoma City and Aberdeen-based Tactical Communications & Solutions. A&L specializes in logistics and aircraft repair whereas TCNS provides mission support services, IT, and engineering.
According to Doug Kitani, IAP’s head of operations, integrating DRS Technologies’ business units expands IAP’s addressable market more than double. Integration of aircraft, networking technologies, and communication services is a natural fit for IAP, as it expands the portfolio of services and solutions to the U.S. Defense Department.
The acquisition strategy was established earlier in 2015 based on organic and inorganic growth. IAP Worldwide Services experienced organic growth through continuous innovation, customer focus, and adopting the lean concept. Conversely, inorganic growth is experienced by integrating complementary business units. Doug believes that the acquisition demonstrates support of IAP’s shareholders and its commitment to providing solutions to complex technological and logistical problems.
