Bluestones Investment Group has acquired another joint venture HandyStaff limited, a Midlands based recruitment specialist business focused on providing temporary and permanent personnel in the construction and shopfitting sectors. The acquisition will see the Bluestones continue its expansion into both industries with brands such as MEP Resourcing, NWP Resourcing, RPM Skilled & Technical and Bluestones Retail already operating in the market.
Whilst there were a number of interested parties keen to partner with HandyStaff, it was the support and structure that the Bluestones Investment Group offers that influenced HandyStaff’s managing director Adam Innocent to work with the Group.
“When I met the team behind the Bluestones Investment Group I was impressed with the support functions within the business. By partnering with them I gained instant access to professionals in HR, marketing, IT and finance,” said Adam.
Following the acquisition HandyStaff has been provided with investment to be used to grow the company from its Midlands base with a new website, new headquarters and 2 new recruitment staff already appointed.
For the Bluestones Group, HandyStaff represents an opportunity for the company to expand its construction and shopfitting divisions with offices in Newcastle, Liverpool, Nottingham, North Wales and London.
“The recent acquisition of HandyStaff by the Group illustrates its commitment to providing excellent recruitment services to the construction and shopfitting sectors. It’s important for the Group that we are able to identify high-performing companies and talented recruitment professionals and provide investment and support to help them grow. Adam’s experience in the sector and success over the last few years made the acquisition into the Group seamless.” Said Paul Broderick, CEO of Specialist Staffing at Bluestones Group.
Adam Innocent launched HandyStaff in 2013 and since then has built up an impressive client base. Headquartered in Nottingham the company provides temporary and permanent recruitment services to clients nationally.
