Simian & Aspects Total Training Ltd form JV

26th August 2020

SIMIAN and Aspects Total Training Limited have joined forces to create SIMIAN Aspects Training Limited.

The Joint Venture initiative, which will operate from Aspects’ existing training facility just off the M6 in Coventry, will seek to build on the CISRS scaffolding training already provided by them in the Midlands area.

The JV forms part of SIMIAN’s ongoing growth plan and builds on earlier expansion into other geographical areas, including London, Weston-super-Mare and Anglesey, in addition to smaller satellite centres in other areas. Jackie Thomason, FD at Simian and co-Director with Michelle McFall in the JV

Speaking of the JV, Simon Hughes, SIMIAN’s Managing Director, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to expand our scaffolding training provision into another geographical area, and this will enable us to service our growing list of safety consultancy clients in the Midlands region with a full CISRS training offering. Initially, in addition to the usual CISRS shorter duration courses, we will be offering CISRS Part One courses, but we will extend this to include Part 2 courses by Autumn, and Advanced courses by the end of the year.”

Jackie Thomason, FD at Simian and co-Director with Michelle McFall in the JV, will lead the new business and both attended a ‘socially distanced’ meeting this morning, to formally sign the JV agreement. Speaking after the meeting, Michelle said: “We are extremely pleased to formally agree a partnership with simian and we are looking forward to benefiting from the wealth of industry knowledge and expertise they will bring to the venture. We are confident that the centre will release its full potential and build on the early success we have enjoyed. Our agreement opens up opportunities for the centre and will enable the JV to develop and realise our long-term objectives at a faster pace, and this will ultimately for the benefit of the scaffolding industry in and around the Midlands region.”
