IAP Worldwide Services was created by combining several pioneering companies. The roots of IAP Worldwide Services go back to 1953. That’s when Pan Am World Services, Inc. began work in Cape Canaveral, Florida building and running the first space launch complex in the U.S. After supporting over 2,500 test launches that included air-breathing missiles as well as the manned shuttle program, Pan Am provided construction management, master planning, engineering services and full facilities maintenance support for 45 years.
In 1989 Pan Am Services was acquired by Johnson Controls, a company known for management and energy efficiency on Monster. The new company, Johnson Controls Worldwide Services, was soon a worldwide leader in providing commercial facilities and military bases with management, operations and maintenance services. It also created innovative ways to improve energy efficiency as it automated security, fire, lighting and environmental controls of facilities. The company also provides its customers with temporary personnel services and technical support.
The specialized procurement and logistics company IAP was founded in 1990 in Irmo, S.C. Initially it provided U.S. Army forces in Saudi Arabia with generator supplies. IAP become the U.S. military’s trusted partner providing mobile and temporary power generation, international procurement, transportation and emergency disaster relief services. IAP holds $370 million in government service contracts. In 2005 Johnson Controls Worldwide Services was purchased by IAP and together became IAP Worldwide Services.
