RM goes East with Dubai JV

(By Tola Sargeant, 9:00am, Thursday 1st October 2009) UK-based educational solutions provider RM is extending its geographic reach with the establishment of a joint venture business in Dubai. RM MENASA, a JV with local partner GEMS Education, will provide educational ICT products and services to schools in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA).

The Dubai-based JV is a nice addition to RM’s international business. We have long said that RM has an opportunity to expand its geographic footprint and this is a sensible move into a growing market. Not surprisingly, the initial focus will be the Middle East, which has well established links to UK education. RM already has a subsidiary in the US, established in 2005, and in Asia-Pacific, where is serves over 4,000 schools in Australia and New Zealand.
