I recently came across a very short news blurb that mentioned Irex Corp* as an employer of Ryan Manelick. While the news dates from 2003, I am including it here as it is the second known reference to Irex Corp.

Drive-By Shooting In Iraq Kills Civilian CV Graduate from the WGAL Channel, December 18, 2003

A civilian with ties to Lancaster County was killed while working in Iraq.

Ryan Manelick, 31, was killed Sunday in a drive-by shooting after leaving a military base in Baghdad.

Manelick was in Baghdad working for Ultra Service-Irex Corp. Manelick's stepfather told News 8 his stepson was fearful of living in Iraq and planned to come home Sunday for the holidays.

Manelick was a 1991 graduate of Conestoga Valley High School in Lancaster County.
According to their website, WGAL is the the exclusive NBC affiliate for the Harrisburg-Lancaster-York-Lebanon area of Pennsylvania.
