Bridge Technical Talent, an IT staffing firm based in Rhode Island, completed its first acquisition with the purchase of BPS Becker Professional Search Inc, which also serves the technology sector.
The transaction closed May 31 and terms were not disclosed.
The purchase expands Bridge’s contract IT staffing division and provides Bridge with new large Massachusetts clients to complement its base of New England and national contract staffing accounts.
BPS Becker, located in Providence, R.I., is transitioning to the Bridge brand and its office will eventually close because Bridge already has two Rhode Island locations as well as plans for a new office southwest of Boston.
Susan Becker will remain with the company to assist with the transition; other BPS staff will remain with Bridge.
Bridge has logged an average annual growth rate of more than 35 percent since 2008. It plans continued organic growth as well as additional acquisitions.
“We’re keeping our eye out. We’re certainly in growth mode,” said James Wright, who purchased the company with Joe Devine 11 years ago.
