Aberdeen-based digital learning firm buys rival for €5.95 million



Mintra, a provider of digital learning systems for safety-critical industries, has acquired maritime digital learning and crew competence management firm Safebridge for €5.95m.

The deal will double the company’s maritime e-learning portfolio via the addition of more than 50 technical and compliance titles.

Mintra, which has a base in Aberdeen, previously acquired OCS HR in 2016 and Atlas Knowledge in 2018.

The latest transaction will add 500 new customers and 200,000 users, meaning Mintra will now service more than 4,000 customer accounts and two million system users worldwide.

Scott Kerr, chief executive of Mintra, commented: “At a time of travel restrictions and physical distancing, it is important that we continue to expand our online services to support our customers operating around the world.

“As one of our existing partners in our online marketplace, the Safebridge course portfolio is hosted on Mintra’s learning and competence system, so can be made instantly available to our customers.”

Ralph Becker-Heins, chief executive of Safebridge, said: “Not only does this acquisition allow us to provide a greatly expanded offering for Safebridge customers, it provides an exciting opportunity for the Safebridge team to be part of Mintra’s and support the development of a market leading business.”

In addition to providing the Safebridge maritime course library through its competence management system, Trainingportal, Mintra will integrate functionality from Safebridge’s own compliance and certification products, SafeMetrix and myCert.

Mintra is headquartered in Bergen and in addition to Aberdeen, it also has offices in Oslo, Stavanger, Dubai, Amsterdam, Hyderabad, Cyprus and Singapore.
