John Mills, Managing Director and founder of PPS Rail, announced today that following a recent corporate restructure within the company, that PPS have agreed a strategic merger with MECX Group. MECX Group have acquired a significant interest in PPS Rail bringing the PPS business under the umbrella of the MECX Group of companies. John stated that “the acquisition by MECX will provide the funding and support required to grow PPS Rail in line with our strategic business growth plan. We will be able to substantially increase and improve our training provision to railway clients nationwide and increase investment into the expansion of our specialist rail planning capability. PPS Rail will continue to operate independently of the other core MECX business units but have the capacity to draw down group support as and when required. On a personal level, myself and my entire team at PPS Rail are genuinely excited about joining the MECX family and we are very much looking forward to the opportunities that this merger will create."
