ILS-INC is a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
International Logistics Systems, Inc. (ILS-INC) founder and pesident Walter Grinnell attributes the company’s success to the employees. “They all do an exceptional job. They are schedule oriented and have always performed and met requirements.” The company has a strong basis in teamwork. “Everybody helps everybody,” Mr. Grinnell proclaimed, and he feels this is a significant strength among the employees. Technical illustrator Ed Held agrees. “Everyone works together, which is key,” he said. “A team who works together succeeds together.”
The ILS-INC team is not only successful but also proud of the company’s accomplishments, and employees are quick to boast about their work. “The Buffalo was in a movie,” Held exclaimed. “It’s even a toy now. That’s cool. I actually sat in that thing when someone was driving it and got to see it built from the ground up.” Similarly, operations manager Jason Coon said some of his most memorable experiences with the company were “being able to work with unmanned vehicles in the field and seeing how they can be utilized.”
This enthusiasm combined with ILS-INC’s past success is indicative of its future potential. Mr. Coons’ goals for the company are to “continue growing, maintain our current customer base, expand our customer base, and look for new areas to grow the company into, whether it is Research and Development (R&D), refurbishment, or Contractor Logistics Support (CLS).” Mr. Grinnell simply hopes to keep his original goals for the company thriving, to “continue to provide a good working atmosphere for employees and stability of employment” while delivering the high level of service our customers have come to expect.
