Boeing completes Federated Software Group buy

Boeing Co. has completed its acquisition of Federated Software Group, a provider of engineering services and software systems that help track and distribute equipment and personnel for the Defense Department. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The St. Louis-based company will now operate as part of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems’ Global Services and Support division, Boeing officials said.
The acquisition, announced Oct. 16, is part of Boeing’s strategy to increase its presence in the military supply-chain and logistics command-and-control markets, the officials said.

Federated Software Group’s clients include the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command and the U.S. Transportation Command.

In September, Boeing announced that it was acquiring Tapestry Solutions Inc., a company with technology tools the Defense Department uses to improve the tracking and distribution of military equipment, spare parts and personnel.

Both acquisitions expand the company’s presence in the logistics and command and control markets, company officials said at the time.

Boeing, of Chicago, ranks No. 2 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
