Canaveral, FL – IAP has announced the opening of a new
office in Dubai, the hub of finance and commerce in the United Arab Emirates.
Well positioned at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, the Dubai office
in the Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone will be the home of IAP’s Regional Procurement
Office and International Service Center.
"Many of our major suppliers and vendors
are currently located in Dubai or are planning to move to the Jebel Ali Free
Trade Zone," said Jeff Wrisley, Senior Manager, Global Procurement.
"By locating an office there, with a registration as a logistics and
trading branch, we can store material such as prepositioned and consigned
materials, and source them within or draw upon manufacturing throughout the
Gulf Cooperation Council, minimizing the cost of duty."
new office will enable IAP to focus initially on its procurement and logistics
operations in support of projects within the region. As part of the company’s
international expansion strategy, the location will also facilitate new
business with other multi-national companies operating out of the Middle East

companies in Dubai are rapidly moving into Africa, and all the major government
contractors have operations in Dubai. Working with the local companies to
support our strategies in Africa will help us better compete in the marketplace."
