European construction and ports sectors now have direct access to improved workforce training and development solutions

Montreal, QC, April 2, 2019 — CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex® training simulators, today announced that they have expanded into Europe via a strategic partnership with Antycip, Europe’s leading provider of professional-grade simulation software.

While CM Labs’ headquarters continue to be located in Montreal, Canada, the company now maintains branches in Antycip offices in the UK, France, and Italy, facilitating hands-on demonstrations of simulation-based learning solutions at all three locations.

Through its presence in Antycip offices, CM Labs now provides local solution set-up, training, and support to clients throughout Europe, including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

“This is an exciting partnership for both companies,” says Patrice Commune, CM Labs’ Chief Revenue Officer. “It combines CM Labs’ innovative training solutions with Antycip’s over two decades of leadership in providing simulation software across Europe.”

“We’re exceptionally pleased to be working with CM Labs, as the European provider of the industry’s leading simulation-based training solutions,” says Michel Pronier, CEO of Antycip. “The result is a net benefit for the construction and ports sectors in Europe, as there are now simply better options when it comes to leveraging simulation to train and develop a workforce that is facing a skills shortage.”

The announcement follows the conclusion of a highly successful series of events gathering CM Labs, Antycip, and UK training leaders to discuss approaches to improving workplace training with simulation.
