Inuit Services was incorporated in 1996 as Bering Straits Environmental Systems and Construction Company, the company was established to perform construction, environmental, and a broad range of services for both government and private enterprise clients. In 2001, the company formally changed its name to Inuit Services, Inc. (ISI), to further emphasize our diversity and intent to expand our base of business beyond construction and environmental work. With a growing market for services providers both in Alaska and in the continental United States, the novation was a logical business progression to market and perform in that arena. The corporate headquarters is located in Nome, Alaska with operations and marketing based at our Anchorage, Alaska location.
The parent corporation, Bering Straits Native Corporation (BSNC), is an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) created by the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA). BSNC began developing various subsidiaries, both for profit and non-profit, to increase the value of the corporation and create equity for its shareholders. With 30 years of corporate experience, BSNC’s developmental efforts have taken them to their existing strong and profitable status.
