Alion Acquires Iowa-Based Logistics Firm

Alion Science and Technology Corp., a McLean-based company that provides technical support to government and private sector organizations, announced the acquisition of LogCon Group, an Iowa-based firm that specializes in ammunitions logistics. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. See Alion's statement regarding the transaction.

LogCon Group has developed inventory tracking systems that use radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. Its clients include private-sector businesses as well as the Defense Department.

Rick Meidenbauer, manager of Alion's Spectrum Engineering Group, said in a statement that LogCon's business lines would "mesh well" with Alion's ongoing work in the RFID field.

Of Alion's 3,500 workers, 72 percent hold security clearances. The company, which is employee owned, was formed in 2002 when 1,600 workers from the ITT Research Institute purchased that organization's assets.
