ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla., – North American Crane Bureau Group (NACB), a subsidiary of ProBility Media Corp, (OTCPK: PBYA), an education company building the first full-service training and career advancement brand for the skilled trades, has signed an agreement in which NACB will leverage our substantial client base to assist in the sales of simulators from CM Labs Simulations (CM Labs), and CM Labs will promote NACB training services as an Approved Training Provider in Lift and Load Handling Training and Certification.
Prior to 2020, NACB’s simulation division NACB IES, provided multiple types of crane simulators for its customers. Following a decision to focus on its more profitable business unit of safety training, NACB discontinued the division. NACB still receives numerous inquiries from its customers and new opportunities for simulators which can range from custom simulators to off-the-shelf units.
“The partnership with CM Labs is a significant step for NACB. Both NACB and CM Labs have prestigious customer bases worldwide. We anticipate our opportunities and relationships can grow exponentially as we leverage our world-renowned NACB Lift Equipment Training and Certifications with the world-renowned simulators provided by CM Labs.” Stated Dana Jackson, Chief Operator Officer for ProBility Media Corp. “CM Labs’ clients fall within our target market. With this new agreement there is now a mutual interest for NACB to assist their clientele, which should expand our customer base domestically and internationally.”
“We’re excited to announce this collaboration with NACB,” says Julien Richer-Lanciault, Product Manager at CM Labs. “We look forward to increased velocity in our vision to address the skilled labor gap, and improve safety training across our common markets through the use of innovative technology.”
With the recent acquisition of Upstryve by ProBility, it now offers training and programs for companies outside of the crane and hoist industry. “ProBility and Upstryve’s customers can now tap into simulators from CM Labs beyond just crane. CM Labs’ offering includes other simulation solutions for construction trades, defense and engineering, which will enable us to offer a complete training solution to our clients across all brands.” Stated Noah Davis, President of ProBility Media Corp.
