Enlightenment Capital-backed Aeyon has acquired Manufacturing Technical Solutions and Marick Group.
Aeyon provides robotic process automation, data analytics, program management and management consulting services to support federal large-scale acquisition programs. It now has over 650 employees and is headquartered in Northern Virginia.
“These two companies bring complementary capabilities to Aeyon and bolster our position as a leading provider of innovative solutions that improve and accelerate the decision-making abilities of our customers,” said Aeyon CEO Sunny Singh. “I am thrilled to welcome the MTS and Marick teams to the Aeyon family. The combination of these businesses will provide for greater growth opportunities and maximize the options for our employees.”
Jason Rigoli, partner at Enlightenment Capital, said the addition of MTS and Marick broadens Aeyon’s technical capabilities and adds engineering expertise and a suite of cloud-based products.
“We look forward to continuing to support Aeyon’s growth strategy as it integrates these businesses and builds upon their past successes,” he said.
MTS is a provider of engineering and science, program and logistics, IT and subject matter expertise solutions primarily to NASA and Defense Department customers. Marick is a provider of cloud-based human capital management and training solutions, and is an adviser in the human capital management software space.
“We are excited to have found a company such as Aeyon, with similar vision, culture, and entrepreneurial spirit,” said Paul Curd, MTS founder, and Tammie Hayes, MTS president. “The Aeyon partnership enables us to pursue our long-term growth strategy and explore market expansion through our combined capabilities. Our commitment to our customers is unwavering, and we look forward to the superior service and outstanding results that our employees and customers have been accustomed to for the last 20 years.”
Marick CEO Rick Landsman said they’re also excited for what the future holds as they integrate.
“Marick’s nearly 15-year run atop the human capital management sector has been based on creating a culture of world-class delivery, personal and professional growth, and industry-leading client support,” he said. “Aeyon brings those same characteristics, and more, at a scale that promotes both client and employee success beyond which Marick would otherwise achieve alone.”
