Our two organisations share the same ‘committed to excellence' culture and exacting focus on the customer. I am looking forward to what the future holds for our companies, our staff and - most importantly - our customers.

"We are now in a position to be able to bring our tailored, solutions-based approach to a wider global market with a vertically integrated training, resourcing and simulation offering."
