Ascentor has been acquired by Amtivo Group, providers of accredited certification, training and technology-enabled services.

Amtivo Group has announced the signing of an agreement with EMB Group to acquire Ascentor and its ACM-CCAS brand in a deal that will add further to the group’s international presence and increase the range of services it can offer to its growing client base. The acquisition of Ascentor will also strengthen Amtivo’s UK certification offering, notably with the addition of security industry certifications.

Ascentor MD, Dave James, said, “The entire Ascentor team are looking forward to working with Amtivo Group and taking the Ascentor brand into new markets. During a brief period of transition over the next couple of months, we’ll be sharing more details about what our new ownership brings to the Ascentor offer.”
