About URS

In September 1997, Lear Siegler Services (LSI) was purchased by The Carlyle Group, a Washington-based investment banking group, whose other defense industry interests included EG&G Technical Services, Inc. In 2002, Carlyle decided to consolidate the complementary capabilities of LSI and EG&G under common management. The combined company, under the name EG&G Technical Services, Inc., was subsequently purchased by URS Corporation, an industry leader in architecture and engineering services.

EG&G Technical Services, Inc. and LSI consolidated to become the premier provider of outsourced management and technical support services to the federal government. EG&G is a global technology company based in Germantown, Maryland with annual sales of more than $950M and approximately 10,000 employees. EG&G provides a full range of management, scientific, technical, operational and support services to both government and commercial customers. LSI began providing maintenance services to large fleets of aircraft in 1961, followed by its training services to the U.S. military and international customers.

On 1 January 2010, in order to present a single brand to our customers, the long standing EG&G, Lear Siegler, and Washington Group names have been retired and all operations will be exclusively URS.

URS Corporation is a market leader in operations, maintenance, modification, overhaul, systems integration, logistics support and training services to government agencies and commercial customers in the United States and worldwide. Altogether, URS has more than 40 years experience with an uninterrupted record of distinguished contract performance.
