In September of 2016, KBR finalized the acquisition of Honeywell Technology Solutions, Inc. (HTSI) as part of the company's strategy to expand its government services business, KBRwyle, and welcomed 3,550 employees across the globe to KBRwyle. In the months since, KBRwyle's President Roger Wiederkehr, has led the effort to integrate the technology solutions business into KBRwyle to maximize synergies and leverage its 65 years of experience supporting U.S. government agencies. With the addition of this business, KBRwyle has boosted its role as a leading professional, technical and mission support services organization providing an array of leading edge, custom solutions that drive mission success for customers in the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, and a variety of other federal agencies.
