US defence and space contractor Universal Technology Corporation (UTC) has agreed to merge with Advanced Core Concepts (ACC).

Based in Georgia, US, ACC is a provider of aviation lifecycle management services, cybersecurity, and space mission analysis and risk management tools.

Financial details of the transaction have not yet been disclosed.

UTC CEO Joe Sciabica said: “UTC has been providing exceptional services to the Air Force Research Laboratory, Nasa, Missile Defense Agency, and Defense Logistics Agency for 58 years.

“In ACC, we have a partner with an excellent reputation, an experienced leadership team, and the same core values UTC has held since 1961. The combined company will continue to invest heavily in our communities and provide additional opportunities for our employees and their families.”

Following the completion of the deal, UTC will become the Universal Technology Company and operate as a limited liability firm.

The transaction will widen ACC’s footprint in Dayton, Panama City and Albuquerque.
