TRG Wind sells its recruitment arm
TRG Wind, a wind turbine support company has announced the sale of its recruitment business as it sharpens its focus on continuing growth.
TRG Wind has also confirmed plans to invest in a new operations centre, having concluded a deal with Garness Jones for space at a business park close to Hull's expanding renewables sector.
David Elcombe, managing director of TRG Wind, said clients will benefit and the company will grow as it concentrates on offering its range of specialist added value services to wind industry manufacturers, developers and operators.
The recruitment business has been acquired by Nico Young, formerly operations co-ordinator at TRG Wind, who becomes managing director and 100% shareholder of the newly created RS Wind Ltd.
Elcombe said both businesses will operate separately and independently and are looking forward to bright futures. He said, "In the past we have been supplying personnel to the industry and we have also supplied packaged and fixed price services such as retro fits and installations.
"We think we can bring in more work if we separate recruitment from the rest of what we do so we have decided to sell that side of the business."
Young will head up RS Wind with a small admin team and a database of thousands of candidates. He will keep the existing recruitment clients and he assures them there will not be any interruption to supply agreements.
He commented, "My team and I are extremely excited to continue our specialist personnel provision under RS Wind.
"The transition of our workforce and clientele will be a seamless one as this is very important for us and our clients. We look forward to continuing our impact on the market, supplying quality personnel to wind farms on and offshore."
TRG Wind was formed in 2014 by individuals who brought together experience in onshore and offshore wind in partnership with specialists from the finance and recruitment sectors.
The company provides experienced wind turbine technicians and supervisory services to wind turbine manufacturers and operators to ensure the highest standards of quality and safety in constructing, commissioning and maintaining turbines.
