News : ASAP HR Group Agrees to Acquire Ritmo
Antwerp, Belgium, May 12, 2015 -- Belgian staffing, payroll, and outplacement firm ASAP HR Group has agreed to acquire Antwerp-based recruitment firm Ritmo. The acquisition, which must first be approved by the Competition Commission, will add 20 new offices to ASAP’s existing network of 60.
ASAP will also benefit from Ritmo’s existing presence and expertise in niche staffing markets; including harbour and maritime, technical, contact centre, and creative sectors.
Ruben Peumans, CEO of ASAP HR Group, commented: "It is no coincidence that in order to continue our growth strategy that we have sought out Ritmo. We now have more clout in the Antwerp region and will add additional expertise to niche markets… Knowhow and services that nicely complement our current HR services offerings."
"Ritmo’s corporate culture aligns perfectly with ours. They are a family business with a flat structure and short lines of communication, who attach great importance to positive values and job satisfaction. [Those similarities] will only make the integration process smoother," he added.
