Capital Safety Group acquires TAG Ltd

Capital Safety Group announced the acquisition of TAG Ltd, the UK’s leading height safety training provider, based in Saddleworth, Manchester.

“This acquisition significantly improves Capital Safety Europe’s training capabilities and is a key part of our strategy. TAG’s training and technical expertise will further enhance our fall protection portfolio,” said Daniel Vernuccio, Managing Director, Capital Safety EMEA.

“This is a great move for TAG,” said Ed Perry, Sales Director of TAG Ltd. “Capital Safety Group is a world class fall protection organisation with global operations and TAG’s training and technical expertise will now benefit from a considerably larger market both nationally and internationally.”

TAG Ltd provides height safety, access and rescue training courses from purpose-designed training centres near Manchester and central London, as well as at external venues when required.

Its national training centre near Manchester has a full range of facilities, from telecom towers and masts to confined space and rescue areas. A suite of modern classrooms with video projection support the theoretical content of its courses. The London facility has a rooftop training area, in-door tower and structures and classrooms to aid learning and development.
