IT integrator VT Group announced it plans to acquire National Technologies Associates, Inc., a firm specializing in program management, engineering, and logistics services for military aviation systems.
NTA, which was founded 1981 and has about 300 employees, provides research, development, test and evaluation support and a full spectrum of mission-critical maintenance and sustainment services for fixed and rotary-wing, tilt-rotor, and unmanned aircraft.
VT Group said the acquisition would position the company a key industry partner to the Defense Department on projects such as the U.S. Navy’s Presidential Helicopter and V-22 Osprey programs.
“NTA shares the VT Group passion for engineering excellence and our commitment to meet the critical needs of the warfighter,” said John Hassoun, VT Group president and CEO. “This acquisition adds unique and differentiated expertise to VT Group’s aviation solutions portfolio. It will be a force-multiplier for our customers and a catalyst for further growth.”
VT Chief Growth Officer Sunil Ramchand added, “The acquisition of NTA is another important step on our journey to become the industry leader in the C4ISR modernization and sustainment market.”
VT Group’s advisers on the deal were Mayer Brown, LLP and Arena Strategic Advisors, LLC.
