Just a year after launch in May 2013, Incorporate Travel Management has announced its second acquisition, SAT Business Travel in Bolton, one of the UK’s leading independent travel management companies. Incorporate will be expanding its uniquely client-centric approach to travel management which is head quartered in Castlefield, Manchester, working closely with SAT’s Paul Sutton who joins the Incorporate board as Commercial Director and a significant shareholder.
SAT’s impressive client list – built up over 30 years – will see major benefits from access to Incorporate’s innovative self-booking technology ‘Inconline’ and other state-of-the-art systems, as well as its bespoke offline service. The SAT portfolio also includes the specialist division SAT Marine which offers all aspects of marine and offshore travel management with dedicated support 24/7 based in the UK.
Incorporate Director Mike Crotty commented, “I’m extremely excited about today’s announcement – SAT is a very well established and respected name within the industry. Our combined experience creates a unique service offer on which we can build. Both my management colleagues and I are delighted that Paul Sutton is joining the Incorporate board to further grow and develop our compelling brand. ”
Paul Sutton added: “I’m very proud of what we have achieved at SAT over the years, and this is a great opportunity for our team to take our business to the next level. Both Incorporate and SAT have like-minded plans to grow and develop and I’m thrilled about combining our knowledge base and skills without compromising our values and approach.”
Incorporate launched in 2013 with initial seed capital backing and the acquisition of Sellers Travel in Huddersfield. The business has recently secured a further significant investment round to support further growth. Incorporate’s fast growing team was further strengthened in early 2014 with the appointment of Sam Bradbury from CTI Travel Management.
