Just six months after our platform investment in Hughes Associates, Huron is pleased to announce the closing of a synergistic add-on for the platform, Edan Engineering Corporation.  Edan specializes in electrical systems analysis, evaluation, testing, and research in critical infrastructure environments such as nuclear power facilities and military bases.

The deal allows Hughes to broaden its service offerings and increase its presence in these important and growing sectors, where recent events around the world have heightened public and government awareness of the need to safeguard these critical facilities.
