Our History

Serco History from 1929 to present.

Reimagining Public Services in North America

Serco established its North American foothold in 1988 when it was incorporated, acquiring companies that shared a similar vision of transforming how public services are delivered.

In 2005, Serco acquired Resource Consultants Inc. (RCI), which expanded its capabilities in IT services, systems engineering, strategic consulting and HR-focused business process management. Then, in 2008 Serco acquired SI International, further broadening its capabilities in IT and professional services in North America and gaining new federal government and DoD relationships. In 2019 Serco acquired the Naval Systems Business Unit of Alion Science and Technology, with a deal that expanded the capabilities that Serco is able to provide to customers in the area of maritime modernization.  Most recently, in 2021 Serco acquired Whitney, Bradley & Brown, Inc. (WBB) to strengthen the Company's platform in acquisition and program management services to a range of Department of Defense clients.

Serco Inc. now employs approximately 9,000 people across the U.S. and Canada. The company delivers services to all branches of the U.S. military, federal civilian agencies, state and local agencies, and commercial customers.
