Training specialist takes over Aberdeen-based learning tech firm
Mintra Group, the HR, competence and training specialist, has acquired Aberdeen headquartered learning technology services firm, Atlas Knowledge.
The move will bring both Aberdeen operations together, giving customers in the oil and gas, maritime, aviation, construction and energy sectors learning and competency systems and services, Mintra said on Friday.
With a turnover of around £15 million, Mintra employs more than 100 people globally and is backed by investor The Riverside Company.
Atlas delivers digital learning solutions to safety-critical industries, employing 39 people with revenues of around £5 million.
The acquisition results in a combined roster of over 1,000 customers across 130 countries. The company is also planning for investment in new technologies including advanced training and assessment techniques.
Scott Kerr, CEO of Mintra Group said: “Uniting Mintra and Atlas creates unrivaled expertise to benefit the training and competency needs of our customers. We are continuously looking ahead to improve the learner experience and the acquisition follows substantial investment in the last year in expanding our maritime and international course libraries.”
According to Mintra, over 150 offshore and maritime customers use its HR systems on thousands of vessels and 150,000 seafarers and personnel on offshore installations are paid through its OCS HR system.
