Two Business Acquisitions

SYSTRA has announced its first acquisition in a specific engineering discipline: International Bridge Technologies (IBT), a specialized bridge engineering firm founded in 2000, which will be called SYSTRA IBT.

Bridges are a vital component of transportation infrastructure and more than 60 percent of bridges around the world are part of rail projects, according to SYSTRA.

Also, Thales, a technology firm based in Paris and parent company of Thales USA, has acquired Guavus, a real-time “big data” analytics company based in San Mateo, CA.

Thales Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Patrice Caine said, “Combined with our established expertise in other key digital technologies, the acquisition of Guavus represents a tremendous accelerator of our digital strategy for the benefit of all our customers, whether in aeronautics, space, rail signaling, defense or security.”

Thales has 64,000 employees in 56 countries, while Guavus employs a total of 250 people in California, Canada and India.
