Following the acquisition of Meggitt Training Systems by Pine Island Capital Partners on 30 June for $146 million (€124 million) in cash, the Suwanee, GA-based company announced its change of name to InVeris Training Solutions on 7 October.
Connoting insight and truth, the new name marks the beginning of a fresh chapter in the company’s long and distinguished history. Owned by Meggitt since 2008, when the UK-based defence and aerospace conglomerate merged FATS and Caswell International to form Meggitt Training Systems, the newly-independent company takes pride in standing behind the bravest, best-trained men and women around the world and to providing comprehensive training solutions that prepare them to act at a moment’s notice to protect the communities and countries they serve. InVeris Training Solutions remains headquartered in Suwanee, GA and partners with clients in the US and around the world from facilities on five continents.
“Over the past few months, we have undertaken a very thorough and thoughtful exercise to more closely align our name and brand with our values in service of safety,” explained Andrea Czop, VP of Strategy, Sales and Marketing. “InVeris means trust and integrity – values that are core to our clients and that we live every day. Our clients give their all, and we’re honored and proud to serve those who keep us safe with excellence. Because we know that when our clients are prepared, and their people are safe, we all stay safe […] As we enter a new phase of growth in US and international markets, our commitment to our employees, clients, and partners remains our top priority. We’ve always backed our clients with quality products, proven innovations and dedicated support. We’ll continue to do that as we move ahead.”
As part of the rebranding, the company has also introduced a new logo, corporate colours, and website, https://InVerisTraining.com: It also retains ownership of its legacy brands, FATS and Caswell Technologies, the industry pioneers in the virtual and live fire training arenas, respectively.
InVeris Training Solutions combines an agile approach with unmatched expertise in training technology to design and deliver customized, cutting-edge training solutions that keep military, law enforcement, and private and commercial range clients safe, prepared and ready to serve – ‘Because Seconds Matter.’ The company has fielded over 15,000 live-fire ranges and 5,100 virtual training systems globally in its 90-year history, and is the Simulation Training Programme of Record for domestic and international military forces. Its advanced training solutions prepare clients in more than 55 countries to safely protect the communities they serve.
