Ifdc is located in Muscle Shoals, AL and was founded in 1974. The company is categorized under the Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences (except Biotechnology) industry. This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in conducting research and experimental development (except biotechnology research and experimental development) in the physical, engineering, and life sciences, such as agriculture, electronics, environmental, biology, botany, computers, chemistry, food, fisheries, forests, geology, health, mathematics, medicine, oceanography, pharmacy, physics, veterinary and other allied subjects.
Ifdc can be more broadly classified into the Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services sector, defined as companies that engage in processes where human capital is the major input. These establishments make available the knowledge and skills of their employees, often on an assignment basis, where an individual or team is responsible for the delivery of services to the client.
The distinguishing feature of this sector is the fact that most of the companies grouped in it have production processes that are almost wholly dependent on worker skills. In most of these industries, equipment and materials are not of major importance. Thus, the establishments classified in this sector, like Ifdc, sell expertise. Much of the expertise requires degrees, though not in every case.
