Wyle is an American privately held provider of specialized engineering, scientific and technical services to the Department of Defense, NASA, and a variety of commercial customers primarily in the aerospace industry. The Company offers services in the areas of test and evaluation; systems engineering and information technology; life cycle and acquisition program management; life sciences research; space medical operations and engineering; and qualification testing for systems and components. Founded in 1949, the Company is still headquartered in El Segundo, California, and has approximately 4,800 employees at more than 50 facilities nationwide. Wyle comprises three primary operating entities: Aerospace Group, CAS Group, and Integrated Science and Engineering Group. Annual revenue is approximately $1.1 billion. Founded in 1949 by Frank S. Wyle (grandfather of actor Noah Wyle) as part of the rapidly expanding Southern California aerospace industry, Wyle Laboratories, Inc. began operations in El Segundo, CA as a testing laboratory. Over time, the company diversified into a variety of markets and businesses. Through a buy-out in 1995, the company was split into Wyle Electronics and the Scientific Services and Systems Group, which continued to operate as Wyle Laboratories. In 2007, the company decided to simplify its name to Wyle since its primary business focus had evolved into a wide range of high tech services and solutions. It still operates laboratories, but its primary business focus is on securing long term services contracts from the Department of Defense, NASA and other Federal agencies.
