The Dutch staffing company DPA Group has acquired 100% of Benkis Training & Coaching, the firm reported on Thursday. Benkis Training & Coaching provides training and coaching services to the banking sector, last year making revenue of €1 million.
Benkis Training & Coaching has been a “preferred supplier” to the Netherlands-based financial services provider Rabobank, DPA said. The acquisition is expected to be formalised before 1 October 2012.
DPA reported that the acquisition will offer many strategic opportunities to its clients, not only in the banking world but also in other business units.
The founders of Benkis, Jan Sjirk Rodenboog and Bert Janssens, will join DPA’s management team. The pair had previously sold their Benkis Interim Professionals business to DPA in April 2012.
DPA is a specialist staffing firm based in the Netherlands. It mainly operates in financial secondment services, IT secondments, as well as supply chain management, procurement and logistics. In August, the company reported that second-quarter revenue was up +5% to €31.5 million
