KBRwyle was formerly known as Wyle Inc. and changed its name to KBRwyle in July 2016. 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. As of July 1, 2016, KBRwyle operates as a subsidiary of KBR Holdings, LLC.
