Berry makes another acquisition

September 27, 2018  /   No Comments

Southampton-based business CPN Construction Services has recently been acquired by Berry Recruitment Group (BRG) for an undisclosed fee.

It is Berry’s seventh acquisition in the last five years as the company continues to expand.

The new owner operates from nearly 40 locations across the country and already has a successful Berry Recruitment branch in the port city.

CPN Construction Services has been trading for 16 years, providing workers in the construction industry across the country. The acquisition will add approximately £6m to BRG’s turnover.

The business also runs a thriving training centre which puts its own workers and those of clients through a variety of courses.

BRG is a multidisciplinary recruiter with construction one of its national sectors; its branches in Truro, Cornwall, and in south east London currently head the division. CPN Construction Services will be re-branded as Berry Recruitment and the group will invest in the business to grow it.

Managing director of Berry Recruitment, Lee Gamble, said: “CPN Construction Services has a fine reputation and a talented team that’s been led by Andy Price, who we’re pleased is staying on.

“We will re-brand the business and the training centre and invest in order to drive expansion. Construction is a growth area and one that fits in with our existing sectors. The business recruits both temporary and permanent workers in the white and blue collar areas; from all the trades through to site managers, architects and surveyors.

“The team will receive support from our other Berry Recruitment branches in Southampton and Gosport and our Wild Recruitment branches in Portsmouth and Poole. Our target is to grow our business to £100m turnover and this acquisition will help us on our way.

“The acquisition is our seventh in the last five years and complements our organic growth.”
