Northstrat was formed in July, 2006 as the brainchild of founders Rick Boyd and Tom Burkat. The company began based on the founders’ beliefs in several core business philosophies, including the ability to deliver on promises to the customer, being proactive, and striving for excellence. Northstrat surrounds itself with quality people from diverse backgrounds and experience. Loyalty, good teammates, treating people right, and always remembering that we are privileged to be doing this kind of work are foundational concepts that contribute to Northstrat's success.

In 2006, Northstrat opened its doors with only a seven-week subcontract to develop a system concept of operations for an Intelligence Community customer. The success of that effort led to a multi-person, full-time subcontract. Over the next five years, Northstrat grew steadily and began to diversify into new areas. Recently, the company has been building momentum, more than doubling in size within the last two years. During this time of expansion, Northstrat moved into new corporate headquarters, opened a SCIF, initiated a dedicated business development department, expanded personnel, and added several exciting, new contracts.

From its humble beginnings to its current dynamic growth phase, Northstrat has remained true to its roots. Since the company is employee owned, every person is committed to not only succeeding, but succeeding in the right way.
