Construction Training Specialists Limited
KBS Corporate has advised on the acquisition of Construction Training Specialists Limited (CTS), a provider of construction training services in the Norwich area.
The company’s training courses and apprenticeships fall into disciplines such as brickwork, carpentry, plastering, plumbing, scaffolding and tiling. Courses are delivered at a range of levels from introductory through to advanced diploma and supervisory/management.
CTS was acquired by Peterborough Regional College (PRC) as part of a growth and development plan. According to PRC, the acquisition further increases the College’s ability to effectively respond to the growing skill requirements of the construction sector and strategically extends its reach across the region.
Terry Jones, Principal and CEO of PRC, said “This acquisition has not only extended the geographic reach of PRC, but will enable us to use a combined expertise to deliver an all-in-one solution to our customers and students.
“The CTS team have been positive and welcoming, ensuring the transition has been seamless and customer focused. We have big plans for PRC both locally and nationally, and we look forward to creating a brighter future together with CTS.”
Dennis Pollard, Director of CTS, said “We are delighted to become part of the PRC Group. The acquisition puts our organisation at the forefront of delivery for the new apprenticeship standards in the construction sector, and puts in place the infrastructure for growth that is required for us to become the premier construction training centre in the Eastern region and beyond.
“We are excited to be in a position to secure the long term future in our training and end point assessment services, alongside delivering interesting new courses developed by construction employers.”
