The move is in line with KBR’s goal of delivering innovative, digitally-enabled solutions to governments and customers across the globe.
Houston/USA – KBR has announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Babcock International Group, to acquire Frazer-Nash Consultancy, a leading provider of systems engineering, assurance and technology advisory services, for approximately 400 million dollars in cash.
