SI International purchased by UK company

Serco, a large service provider from the UK with worldwide operations, announced that it had purchased the US defense contractor, SI International. The $400 M deal expands Serco into the US defense market and represents another broadening of their market base. This continues the trend of European companies buying US ones in order to reach the large DoD budget here. By buying a US company many of the technology transfer and security requirements that impact foreign companies doing business can be minimized. SI International has 4,500 employees and primarily supports the US Air Force, an area that Serco does not do much business with.
