Boss Training are delighted to announce that on 30th June 2017, the acquisition of Access Training Solutions was completed. 

The training centre located in Wednesbury, West Midlands is currently being re-branded but courses will continue to run on a daily basis during the takeover.

Mike Haslam, owner of Access Training is moving to Ireland but will be staying on and working for Boss until October to help with the transition and ensure clients receive the highest possible standard of service.

Mike said, “When I decided to move to Ireland, I wanted to sell the business to a company with a good reputation who I knew would look after my existing customers. I felt that Boss Training was the perfect choice to not only do this but also enhance the business by providing a wider range of courses. I have known Andrew for a number of years and I’m happy that my customers will be in very safe hands”.

The centre which is currently undergoing a major refurbishment is handily placed in the heart of industrialised West Midlands. There are currently two 12 seater classrooms, with plans for a third. There are very large indoor ‘practical’ training areas to ensure that all delegates receive the highest possible standard of practical training whatever the weather.

With mobile and static scissor lifts and booms, scaffold towers and ladders & steps, the centre can easily cater for multiple work at height courses often at short notice.

The venue is easy to find and there is ample free car parking.

Boss Training’s managing director Andrew Murphy said “When Mike approached me to discuss the purchase of Access Training Solutions it was a no-brainer really. The business fits perfectly with our expansion plans and is geographically important as we have many existing clients in the West Midlands who we can now serve better than ever. We are all very much looking forward to the challenge”.
