VSE Corporation was established in 1959 to provide engineering and technical services to the owners and operators of transportation and equipment assets and large, mission critical fleets (ships, vehicles and aircraft.)

(which includes Prime Turbines LLC, CT Aerospace LLC, Kansas Aviation of Independence, LLC, and Air Parts & Supply Co.), Akimeka LLC and Energetics Incorporated.
