Ohio-based MacB provides a range of technology support and engineering services to defense, intelligence, homeland security and other federal agencies. The company’s core capabilities are in cyber security, information operations, intelligence and analysis, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, research, development, test and evaluation, information technology, logistics and supply chain, and acquisition management and program management office support.

MacB said that CTI provides cleared staff with mechanical, electrical and software engineering expertise and offers reach into the intelligence and Special Operations markets, two key growth areas for the company. MacB also said that CTI gives it extensive mechanical engineering and prototyping capabilities and a quick reaction capability “that significantly decreases product and solution design and development times.”

“The acquisition of CTI increases MacB’s offering by adding to our extensive systems and electrical engineering capabilities, and is in line with our strategy to provide our national security customers with a full range of technology products, services, and solutions,” Sid Fuchs, president and CEO of MacB, said in a statement. “The collective skills of our employees will drive innovation and increase value for our customers.”

CTI entered the cyber security space in 2012 by adding information operations specialists to provide offensive and defensive cyber capabilities. Also that year, the company acquired Black Oak Technology Group, which does cyber security work for the National Security Agency in the areas of information security and computer network operations.

CTI, which is based in Northern Virginia, said that by joining MacB it increases its ability to offer solutions to a broader customer set.

KippsDeSanto was CTI’s financial adviser on the deal.
