Primestaff launches Edinburgh operation
Glasgow-based Primestaff has opened an office in Edinburgh in a bid to reach its target turnover of £20m by 2020.
The company says expansion in Dundee is also imminent.
The company, which was recently acquired in a management buyout, saw turnover exceed £11m and profit surpass £2m in 2015-2016 – making it the company’s biggest year ever.
Technical business manager Derek Thomson will work across Edinburgh and Glasgow after spending more than 15 years at a leading national agency, which recently closed its Glasgow office. Robert Muir, formerly of Bibby Factors, has also taken on the role of group business development director,
Chief executive, Danny McIntyre, said, “This is an exciting time for our business. There’s a great deal of opportunity across Scotland and we have a talented group in place ready to take Primestaff to the next level.
“Hiring the right people has always been central to our growth and by continuing to grow our team with talented staff, it will help us to adapt to challenges and take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace.“
Muir added, “While at Bibby Factors I worked closely with Primestaff for many years. I have always been impressed with their approach and have watched with interest as the company has grown. I couldn’t be more pleased to join the team and help the company take the next step.
“With some rival agencies moving out of Glasgow, and with Edinburgh as an area of growth, I’m excited to work across both cities to create and unearth new opportunities.”
Primestaff’s offices are currently in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Paisley and the company currently work within commercial, industrial, construction, technical, hospitality and events staff. Its subsidiary, Black and Black, operates in the social care and housing sectors.
