Meggitt Training Systems was acquired by Pine Island Capital Partners in July 2020 and the company was renamed InVeris Training Solutions. Pine Island consists of an experienced investment team, combined with a group of deeply-connected and accomplished former senior government and military officials.

Each of the D.C. partners teams with the investment professionals to actively participate in sourcing deals, conducting analyses, winning bids, closing transactions, and directly advising the companies in which Pine Island invests. Extensive leadership, investing, and networking expertise of the Pine Island partner’s enables the firm to employ a differentiated approach to middle market investing. To learn more, visit
