Tavcom and Linx International join forces
Linx International and Tavcom announce they have concluded an agreement resulting in Linx acquiring a majority shareholding in Tavcom.
Tavcom is the leading provider of online and classroom based security systems training. The Linx International Group includes Linx Consulting and renowned security management training providers, ARC Training International and Perpetuity Training.
“Tavcom’s unrivalled expertise in the systems training market, combined with the Linx International Group’s reputation for providing premier security management training, will provide an unparalleled offering to the sector,” said David Gill, CEO of Linx International Group. “Our plan is for Tavcom to continue to operate under its existing brand within the Linx International group and clients will therefore continue to receive the outstanding levels of service that they have come to expect. However, the inclusion of Tavcom within the Group presents a fantastic opportunity to create a global leader in both security management and security systems training”.
Paul Tennent, previously Sales Director for Tavcom, has been appointed Group Sales Director for Linx International, whilst Mike Tennent, who founded Tavcom, has been appointed the company’s non-executive Chairman.
Mike Tennent, CEO of Tavcom, commented: “I am delighted with this transition. The shift from a family business to the new international group set-up is one which will see the company build on its excellent reputation, as well as open new opportunities to our clients to offer outstanding training and consultancy internationally.”
