Alion Science and Technology Corp., headquartered in McLean, Va., announced has a pending agreement to buy MacAulay-Brown.

“MacB’s offerings are truly differentiated in the government contractor market, and through this acquisition we strengthen our inroads into emerging technologies in electronic warfare, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and cloud solutions,” stated Steve Schorer, president and CEO of Alion.

MacAulay-Brown is one of the largest locally-based defense contractors, leading classified projects in fields like engineering and technical services, cybersecruity and counter-terrorism analysis.

Ailion is part of the portfolio of private equity company Vertias Capital.

Sid Fuchs, president and CEO of MacB, as the firm is often called, said in a statement that he was looking forward to working with Alion and Veritas Capital “to take this enterprise to the next level.”
