Leading supply chain and logistics management recruitment specialist The BJD Group has been acquired by the Birmingham-based Network Recruitment Partnership.
The Edgbaston-based company believes the deal is a 'perfect and logical fit' for Network Recruitment Partnership, both strategically and geographically, and follows nicely with its last foray into the marketplace 18 months ago.
Then, Network Recruitment Partnership acquired Procurement People Recruitment Ltd - with its global office network - as a subsidiary company, offering highly specialised recruitment services to the procurement sector.
BJD Group joins Network Recruitment Partnership alongside the familiar Pertemps brand. As such, BJD’s clients have immediate access to more than 100 national UK branches and another 30 other specialist functional and sector-focused recruitment brands.
Network Recruitment Partnerships managing director Ken Wood said: "BJD gives us a lot more scope and now we have three companies all under one umbrella group complementing each other. The acquisition genuinely enhances reputation and increases our share of the marketplace."
The takeover brings together two well-established companies – Network Recruitment Partnership has been around since 1984 and BJD Group has a 22-year pedigree working at senior level in the supply chain and distribution sectors with more than 100,000 candidates registered to its database.
Company founder Barrie Dowsett is retiring later in the year but his son Chris will be carrying on the family tradition as a new director of BJD after nearly two decades with the company
