Benchmark International has successfully advised on a deal between the group of Pellings companies (Pellings LLP, J & A Pellings and Pelling Limited) and RSK Group Limited, which marks RSK’s ninth acquisition in as many months as well as its largest acquisition to date.
Pellings, a group of companies which provide a complete spectrum of architectural services, building surveying, project management and related professional services for housing, education and healthcare projects, have 125 staff and four offices covering North, West, South and Central London.
RSK is an integrated environmental, engineering and technical services consultancy, which has 36 international offices, more than 2,700 employees and an annual turnover of £200m. It is currently actively investing in Europe, the Middle East, India, Africa and former Soviet Union countries, and has an active client base of 7,000 organisations spread across these regions.
The group of Pellings companies have significant synergies with RSK and the joint venture will expand their services to a wider range of sectors in a greater geographical area.
Post-acquisition, Pellings will become part of RSK’s geosciences and engineering division. The companies' current leadership team, including its managing director Richard Claxton, will join RSK and continue to drive the business forward.
RSK’s founder and chief executive officer, Dr Alan Ryder, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with the company [Pellings], a growing business that will enhance RSK’s service offering to its clients.”
On behalf of everyone at Benchmark International, we would like to wish both parties every success for the future.
