About the business:
Huntsville, Ala.-based Bevilacqua Research Corporation provides scientific consulting services to government clients like the Department of Defense and NASA, having to do issues that range from electronic warfare, anti-terrorism planning, to intelligence gathering. Bevilacqua has more than 1,000 competitors, at least 100 of which are in Huntsville, so CEO Andy Bevilacqua has focused on building up a solid, talented staff to separate his business from the competition. Finding the right workers is particularly challenging in rural Warren County. The company has found more business opportunities by offering less technical scientific support services.
