Raytheon was the owner of Badger for many years with offices around the world. Badger, including the office in The Hague, was renamed in 1995 to Raytheon Engineers and Constructors. In 2000 Raytheon Engineers and Constructors were sold to Morrison and Knudsen and the company chose a new name Washington Group International.
The Washington office in The Hague, after a difficult period, came into financial difficulties in 2001 and the office in The Hague is now closed.
The founding of Red-Bag was the initiative of employees of the former Washington office in The Hague.
The company started with mostly engineering services but is now focusing the core business on software development for these services.
The idea for Red-Bag was born at the start of May 2001. At that time Washington Group International was in financial difficulties. The internal initiative was that the new company Red-Bag would become the 'life saving vessel' alongside the 'Titanic' in The Hague. Basically the new company would consist of the present experienced engineers and would continue the work in the (Petro-) Chemical industry. Unfortunately the bankruptcy for the office in The Hague came sooner than expected and before Red-Bag was an established company.
The initiative for Red-Bag has been continued after the bankruptcy of the Washington office in The Hague. The final founding of Red-Bag has been completed in 2001 and the company is in business ever since.
