Before starting ICORP-IFOAM Specialty Products Corporation in 1992, ICORP’s founder, Phil Landers, worked as an Engineer, Lineman, and Researcher (1968-1977) for a power company in Florida. From 1977-1984, he was recruited as a Project Manager and Manager of Technology Transfer for a newly-formed research organization (the Electric Power Research Institute) that was chartered for the purpose of identifying, conducting, and managing research for the Power Industry. In 1984, after completing his tenure with EPRI, Mr. Landers formed a company to commercialize some of the research that had been developed. After taking that company public in 1986, Mr. Landers conducted research that led to the development of the IFOAM and E-SAP technologies. In 1992, Mr. Landers formed ICORP-IFOAM Specialty Products Corporation.
Currently, Mr. Landers holds 14 U.S. Patents related to various aspects of ICORP’s technology with several others in progress.
