Atlas Buys Scottish Technical Recruitment Specialist

Atlas Professionals acquired Brander, an Aberdeen-based technical recruitment company, on 15 January.

According to Atlas, the newly-acquired company makes a perfect fit due to the markets it operates in and its already established relationships with professionals and clients.

Brander provides over 150 professionals a day on contract, temporary or permanent basis in the fields of Engineering, Offshore Drilling & Marine, Maintenance & Operations, Commissioning & De-Commissioning and Renewables to a broad range of energy markets. 

“Brander has an impressive track record in offshore sectors which perfectly complements the business activities of Atlas Professionals in the energy, marine and renewables industries," said Marcel Burghouwt, Managing Director at Atlas Professionals. 

“We found in Atlas Professionals the perfect company to continue our highly valued personnel services in the offshore industries to an even higher level and therefore both companies, and our clients and professionals, benefit from two-way exchanges of expertise,” said Jenni Milne of Brander.

Following the acquisition, there will be a period of integration, which will be communicated with all stakeholders to encourage a smooth transition process, Atlas stated.
