It has been an exciting summer for us at ResQ. ResQ was acquired by Maersk Training, a subsidiary of A.P. Moller - Maersk, just before the summer.
Although ResQ will still be operating as before, there will be new opportunities for our and Maersk Training's customers. Alongside the acquisition there will be new possibilities for our customers. Now will be able to provide even broader selection of safety courses as we access a new capacity from Maersk Training while Maersk Training gains our great competence in Crisis Management.
“We are looking very much forward to be part of Maersk Training and believe combining our business will significantly strengthen our value proposition to customers. Together we can provide a full end-to-end offering and further evolve our crisis management services to digital platforms which will allow us to expand to other industries as well as to international customers,” says Njål Arne Vathne, CEO of ResQ.
Maersk Training and ResQ has a close relationship today with ResQ being the largest third-party service provider for Maersk Training in Norway. Since 2019, ResQ has been a subcontractor of Maersk Training delivering services to support the Maersk Training’s global training management contract.
“ResQ is a well-managed and profitable business with renowned competencies within training services. As part of Maersk Trainings ambitions to become a leading training provider with end-to-end services across the North-Sea region, we regard ResQ as a perfect fit, as it will significantly increase our presence in Norway and increase our end-to-end offerings,” says David Skov, CEO Maersk Training.
