From our founding in 1955, PAE has offered exceptional expeditionary services to a range of customers, including the U.S. government, international agencies and foreign governments.
We attribute our continuous success not only to the quality of our work, but to the integrity and high ethical standards that define our business operations. As a global company, we recognize that we have a core responsibility to positively impact the communities in which we work and live. From stabilization and disaster relief services to infrastructure and capacity building, our employees perform with excellence and dedication in more than 65 countries, in some of the world's most challenging regions.
In 2006, PAE became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Lockheed Martin Corporation. While operating under Lockheed Martin ownership, PAE strengthened its corporate infrastructure and its focus on performance excellence, while continuing to provide superior logistical and support services to United States and foreign government agencies and international aid organizations.
In April 2011, private equity firm Lindsay Goldberg purchased PAE from Lockheed Martin. Six months later, in October 2011, PAE completed the acquisition of Defense Support Services LLC (DS2), a leading provider of military aircraft and vehicle maintenance, logistics and base support services. Under new ownership and with the addition of DS2, PAE continues to provide the services that support our customers' most challenging missions.
The values that have set us apart over the past five decades continue to guide our company in leading with integrity and excellence. We are strongly committed to diversity, recognizing that our success depends on bringing together a wide range of perspectives, skills and experiences to find the most innovative, cost-effective solutions for our customers.
