Parity Training has stepped up its activities in Scotland by buying Technical Training Inc.'s training services branch. Although the deal was precipitated by Parity's preferred supplier contract with HBOS PLC, which has a heavy presence in Scotland, the firm also hopes to strengthen its presence north of the border. The sale also gives Parity control of Technical Training's managed training service business, which will now operate under the name Parity Training Scotland. Technical Training's former managing director, Bill Kyle, is staying on as general manager for Parity Training Scotland.
