IAC was founded as a product distribution and services business in the 1950s by John R.S. Kirkham. Since then, Kirkham Group has become a diversified business group that is focussed principally in Asia. Its businesses continue to incorporate the interests of the founder, expanding within the air-conditioning industry and it has also grown substantially over the years in its reputation as a residential property developer.
