POWELL — A Wyoming company that provides online English instruction to students around the world has merged with a China-based language company.

The found of Eleutian Technologies, Kent Holiday, told the Powell Tribune that it acquired 100 percent of the company, Idapted. The new combined company will continue to use the Eleutian name.

Holiday said the deal will allow Eleutian to speed up plans to offer online English instruction in China.

Forty people, including 35 Chinese citizens, who work for Idapted will now work for Eleutian. However, Holiday said the company will continue to use teachers from Wyoming and other states to teach English to students abroad.

Eleutian plans to build its new headquarters in Cody. A groundbreaking is scheduled for Nov. 5.
