SoBran was founded in 1987 by Amos Otis, an officer in the US Air Force, in Dayton, Ohio. The following year the company won its first contract, a small project for the US Navy.

In 1993, SoBran landed its first multi-million dollar contact, with the Publications Distribution Office at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. By the late 1990s, the company’s portfolio had broadened – expanding its research and engineering services, with its first major IT support contract at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and environmental research support contract with the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

In 2001, its biomedical research services division landed its first of several multi-million dollar contracts with the National Institutes of Health (NIH). By 2005, its supply chain and services division was contracted in multiple locations with the U.S. Navy, the United States Department of Defense and the United States Department of Homeland Security.

The company supports customers such as the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Homeland Security, all four branches of the military and the Department of Energy.
