The IPA Group

The IPA Group is successful because our Officers, Managers and Staff are top experts in their fields.
Each business unit is developed, managed and operated as a semi-autonomous entity and/or affiliate corporation to form “The Group.” Our business structure provides our customers with only the highest level of excellence yet also provides our corporate staff with an opportunity to develop, manage and eventually own their own business unit and company. Our employee owned “business consortium” model inspires, motivates and rewards employees for loyalty, dedication and maintaining the highest standards. A few of the benefits to our customer is professionalism, tailored support and low cost.

The IPA Group developed a broad and diverse resume of past performance including:

  • Support to NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory and the Orion Space Program
  • National Crisis Management assistance to the Kingdom of Jordan
  • High Threat VIP Protection to Iraqi Officials and U.S. human assets
  • Mi17 Helicopter tactical aviation / counter drug operations and training to a foreign friendly nation that supports US National Security policies
