IEM, a risk management firm that recently moved its headquarters to the Triangle from Louisiana, has been awarded part of a $100 million five-year military contract.
IEM will provide support services for the U.S. Army at the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
MSCoE provides training to make soldiers combat-ready.
IEM has provided support to the Maneuver Support Center since 1999.
Under the new contract, IEM is one of eight contractors eligible to provide MSCoE with support.
IEM has leased nearly 10,000 square feet in a Research Triangle Park building that houses the headquarters of chemical manufacturer Reichhold.
IEM expects to have 55 employees at its RTP headquarters by the end of the year. It had about 45 employees last month when it officially opened its new offices.
