Encore Personnel acquire Response Recruitment Solutions
The purchase of Response, based in Spalding Lincolnshire, further increases Encore’s share of the temporary recruitment marketplace. “The combination of Response’s position in the East of England with our industry leading innovative staffing solutions will provide clients with enhanced efficiencies in productivity and labour management”, said Greg Latham, Encore’s Managing Director. “The acquisition is also expected to result in greater efficiencies and significantly increases to our market share”, added Mr. Latham.
“The integration of both companies will take place over the next three months. Clients will continue to receive the same high quality of personal support they have experienced from Response with the added benefit of Encore’s experience and professionalism”, stated Greg Latham.
“Organic growth remains the primary driver of Encore’s strategy. We will continue to invest in technology innovation, improving the resource capabilities of our recruitment teams in a tightening skills market. However, we will also continue to acquire targeted, strategic, and “fill-in” business’ to add to our Blue Collar specialist offerings to best support our customers’ needs.”
Encore Personnel have over 30 years’ experience in the recruitment sector, placing over 3500 temporary workers a week from its network of 21 Divisions throughout the UK and its Managed Services operation.
