TOS, a Netherlands-headquartered international supplier of nautical and technical personnel, has acquired Maritime Human Resources BV. MHR will continue under the name TOS MHR.

With the acquisition, TOS expects to be able to further its growth in the port and logistics sector and to reinforce its services in the maritime training segment. “Our current clients find their way to us for our HR services: flexible and cost-efficient personnel solutions. In addition to the placement of professionals, we can now extend our services to also include placement of trainees in companies with certified internship programmes in the port and logistics sector, as well as in inland shipping. Not only for our current clients but certainly also for new clients that are interested to work with students following a work-based learning pathway”, explained Kees Wagenaar, Managing Director of TOS.

TOS has acquired all MHR shares as of 13 October 2017. Previously, MHR was partially owned by the STC-Group.

Eventually, the new activities will be carried out at the TOS head office at the Waalhaven O.Z. 77 in Rotterdam. TOS MHR offers senior secondary vocational students a learning and working environment for the work-based learning pathway.

This applies to training programmes including Offshore, Hydraulic Engineering/Dredging, Ports, Shipping, Logistics, Ship and Yacht Construction and Rhine and Inland Navigation.
