Origins

Founded with a loan from Edwin Wilson.[1]

Illegal arms deals

Systems Services Inc. at one point held a 49 percent interest in Egyptian American Transport and Services Corp. (Eatsco), which pleaded guilty in July 1983 to collecting $8 million in illegal profits from overbilling the government for the shipment of tanks, jet fighters, radar devices and other U.S. military items to Egypt. Thomas Clines received about $2.5 million from the $8 million in inflated claims, according to court documents, but court officials agreed not to pursue claims further after Clines plead guilty and paid a $10,000 fine. Clines' lawyer, John Ellsworth Stein stated "We're very pleased with the outcome".[1]
