LOWELL, Arkansas – Central Research, Inc. (CRI), a provider of customized management and financial service solutions and products for government and commercial sectors, today announced the acquisition of Skyline Ultd Inc., a professional services provider to federal, state and local agencies.

Skyline, founded in 2001, provides staff augmentation and information tech services for a variety of government agencies, including the Intelligence Community, Department of Veteran Affairs, Army National Guard Bureau and Health and Human Services/CDC. The company has nine employees.

“We’re very excited to add the experienced staff and capabilities of Skyline to the CRI brand of companies,” said Bobby McKinnon, president of CRI. “Like us, they are focused on providing exceptional customer service and innovative solutions, tackling challenges and solving problems for their customers.
