As a combination of the lessons learned from his family and his experiences in the service of his country, Von Washington developed a vision of creating a business that provided remarkable service and first-rate products while encouraging a culture of excellence. Integrated Defense Applications, or IDA Technology, emerged from that vision.
Von named the business in honor of his grandmother, Ida, who had inspired him for so many years, and the company is still instilled with those family values today. Mr. Washington’s son, daughter, and wife all work at IDA in different capacities.
Von has not forgotten his brothers and sisters in arms either. Along with his wife, who is also a veteran, IDA employs many veterans. Additionally, IDA supports the Armed Services YMCA, which is a military nonprofit organization serving junior enlisted members and their families.
Today, IDA has expanded into a holding company with operations and employees in multiple states. The legacy of Ida Merrit Moore on Mr. Washington’s family lives on through the high-quality products and exceptional service that all of our branches deliver. Ida would accept nothing less, and neither do we.
