MTS joins Ocean Technologies Group

(Posted on 31/03/20)

On 27th March 2020 Seattle-based Maritime Training Services (MTS) joined the new Ocean Technologies Group, home to COEX, Seagull Maritime, Tero Marine and Videotel.

The combination ensures that MTS will accelerate its growth and develop its services, providing certainty to MTS customers and team following the untimely passing of the company’s Owner and Managing Director, Matthew Gasparich, last year.

MTS will add value to and also benefit from the diverse range of skills and experience available within the Ocean Technologies Group while also being able to draw on the significant investments in R&D being made by the Group in new technologies, content and courses.

Ocean Technologies Group aims to invest in the latest e-learning technologies and pedagogical methods such as gamification, micro-learning, virtual and augmented reality, as well as 3D animation and best-in-class video content.

MTS is well known to both Seagull and Videotel, having collaborated with both companies over many years on the production of maritime e-learning content and distribution of their respective training libraries.

“It is great to be able to welcome MTS to the Ocean Technologies Group. The company will add a significant expertise in the production of bespoke client-specific training programmes having worked with blue-chip customers in commercial shipping, maritime administrations, cruise sector and adjacent markets” said Manish Singh, Ocean Technologies Group Chief Executive Officer.

“The combination enhances the responsiveness of MTS, by leveraging on Ocean Technologies Group’s global foot-print. Similarly the Group has better in-region footprint to serve the maritime market across the Americas. With colleagues based from Seoul in the East to Seattle in the West, we are a truly global partner to our customers” he continued.

The combination of MTS with Ocean Technologies Group comes at a crucial time, as Industry leaders Seagull Maritime and Videotel have been working proactively to offer a growing diversity of e-Learning opportunities tailored to specific client requirements.

“Joining this exciting new group gives MTS and our customers an incredible opportunity to build on the good work we have been doing together and take things to the next level.” Said Michelle Bollaert MTS International Operations Manager.
