Digital learning provider Mintra is expanding its maritime business with the acquisition of Safebridge for EUR5.95m.

Mintra said the acquisition of Safebridge would double the size of its maritime eLearning business with the addition of more than 50 technical and compliance titles. It will also add 500 new customers and 200,000 users.

“This is a significant move for Mintra in the maritime space, and substantially boosts this revenue line. 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. Conversely, we will make the full Mintra course library available to customers from Safebridge.”

Ralph Becker-Heins, ceo of Safebridge, comments: “Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Safebridge; one where we can share, combine and accelerate our mission to grow with the Mintra team.

“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.”
