Specialist employment agency sold to Strategic Workforce Solutions Group Ltd

Backline is a specialist employment agency, with deep expertise and experience in the transport and logistics sector. From its origins, in 1999, the Company had established a reputation for supplying high quality temporary staff to a number of prominent national and local customers.

The company, a leading player in the South West with c50% regional market share, had an active client base of more than 320 companies in the retail, haulage and logistics sectors and has long-term framework agreements in place with several major clients.

Augmenting its recruitment services, Backline had a large outbase facility enabling it to provide secure parking and warehousing for client vehicles and stock.

The Shareholders, David Scanlan and his wife, had established a competent and talented senior management team, who were responsible for the day to day business operation which increased the company’s attractiveness to prospective purchasers.

The reason for sale was that our clients wanted to retire and were looking for a straightforward sale process that delivered an attractive price and one that recognised all of the years of “blood, sweat and tears” involved in growing a successful business.

Following a referral from one of our IFA partners, Dave Scanlan met our CEO, Rob Goddard and revealed that he had already received an offer for his business but had been recommended to speak with Evolution to establish if this offer was a good one and whether it could be improved.
