Belgian buy boosts Azlan training arm

Has eyes on lion's share of the Euro training market

Azlan has cemented a deal to buy a Belgian Microsoft training business for £1.86 million cash. The networking distributor will make an initial payment of £1 million for Flexcom, with the remainder paid over two years subject to performance of the company. Flexcom, which also distributes press publications for Microsoft and claims to be Belgium's biggest testing centre for Sylvan and Vue, will be merged into Azlan's existing training business. The division aims to be the country's biggest Microsoft technical training company, also offering courses in Cisco, Novell and Lotus. The deal gives Azlan's training arm 189 training rooms at 29 sites in 10 European countries. ® Related stories: Azlan takes Sylvan test Azlan recovers its roar Azlan plays ecommerce card
