“The addition of Excet’s capabilities enhances our solutions-based service offerings to our customers,” said Scott Pfister, President and Chief Executive Officer of Precise Systems. “Since our partnership with Bluestone Investment Partners began in January 2023, one of our key strategic initiatives has been to find acquisition targets that complement and advance Precise’s capabilities principally in support of the Department of Defense.  Excet is a perfect fit to do just that.”
