Scalian Acquires MANNARINO

MANNARINO is pleased to announce that MANNARINO has been acquired by Scalian Group and are excited at the prospects the acquisition provides us with.  

With this acquisition, MANNARINO is entering a new chapter for the organization and we fully expect it to spawn on-going growth for all stakeholders and further our ambition to be the supplier of choice for all of our customers.  MANNARINO will operate as a standalone subsidiary of Scalian Group with the mandate to continue to deliver the wide array of engineering and certification services and products to our customers and execute our operational plans.

Scalian Group is a 550M euro, 5,500+ person strong service firm based in Europe and North America, with a genesis in Airborne Systems and Software.  Scalian Group has established business lines in Operational Performance, Transformation and Technology, and Digital Solutions, including strong expertise in critical Software and System Engineering (perfectly in line with our own expertise) offering our customers an expanded portfolio of capabilities and expertise with a continued focus on points of differentiation from our competitors.

John Mannarino and the entire management team remain in place, as will all the MANNARINO staff.  Our focus is to ensure a seamless transition moving forward. From the market’s perspective, it will be “business as usual” with the MANNARINO leadership team fully committed to the future journey. The partnership with Scalian Group provides financial strength and expanded capabilities and expertise, all relevant to continuing as a strong partner to all our customers.
