History & Perspective

 

History

ARES Corporation was founded in 1992 to provide top-quality technology solutions to our clients on time and within budget.  Privately held, ARES has grown since 1992 from a start-up company of three to over 750 employees in numerous offices and project offices across the country and around the world.  We have continued to earn a “strong” financial rating by Dun & Bradstreet due to low overhead and minimal debt load.  ARES focuses our resources on solving our clients most critical problems and issues, meeting both their target deadlines and budget constraints.

Over the years, our leaders have continued to expand our product lines and services to meet our customers ever-evolving need for better solutions to their complicated technical problems.  Our expertise has grown to include the key fields of Engineering, Reliability and Mission Assurance, IT Architecture and Security, Project Management, and Security, all supported by our unique perspective on risk management. ARES has grown from focusing on providing radiological and toxicological waste retrieval and storage analysis, to performing quantitative risk assessments (PRAs) for the B2 Bomber, F-15 & F-16 fighter jets, Space Shuttle, International Space Station and for various programs within the Missile Defense Agency to being the prime contractor of the Program Integration and Control contract for the International Space Station.  Along the way, we have developed key proprietary software tools that assist in managing these complex programs.  Our broad range of capabilities continues to expand as ARES grows and becomes more and more recognized for our value-added expertise.

ARES recognizes that, in an ever-competitive global economy, our products, services and solutions must provide a very high benefit-to-cost ratio in order for our clients to invest in our capabilities.  ARES has sustained significant annual growth each year due to exceptional client satisfaction, as evidenced by more than 95% repeat business per year.
