GP Strategies Training Limited, the Bredbury-based improvement solutions and learning provider, has acquired Jencal Training and its subsidiary B2B Engage.

Manchester’s Hill Dickinson acted on behalf of GP Strategies, a wholly owned subsidiary of NYSE-listed US parent company GP Strategies Corporation (GPX) with a team led by Jonathan Gillow, Ian Riggs and Sean Lightfoot. Andy Humphrey and Stephen Moorcroft of DTE provided corporate finance advice.
