Government security services firm IDS International on Wednesday said it has acquired two companies focused on training services, DECO and GovSource.
Terms of the deals were not disclosed.
DECO, which is now a subsidiary of IDS and is based in Minnesota, provides international training and security solutions to government and commercial markets. The U.S. State Department is one of its customers.
GovSource provides military and law enforcement support to the U.S. government and partner nations. Its customers include Special Forces, Rangers, counter-terrorism personnel, search and rescue units, and others.
IDS, which is based in Arlington, Va., now has over 1,400 employees working in three lines of business, including training and technical services, expeditionary support services, and cyber and information warfare.
“By combining IDS, DECO and GovSource, we are merging three companies with distinct strengths and mature customer relationships to address the world’s most complex and mission-critical programs,” Nick Dowling president and CEO of IDS, said in a statement. “The benefits to all three firms are considerable, and IDS is now a fully integrated government services firm that is positioned to win larger, more complex contracts.”
