FEBRUARY 2018 | FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MORSON GROUP ACQUIRES NORTH AMERICAN BASED
ENGINEERING/TECHNICAL STAFFING AND PROJECT COMPANIES
Morson Group is delighted to announce that it has acquired the Canadian parent company Strategic Infusion Inc. (SI).
Strategic Infusion was founded by experienced recruitment professionals Rick Goodman and Neil Smith in 2005. Headquartered in Burlington, Ontario, it also has operations in the USA and Caribbean and core technical markets include nuclear and telecommunications. SI currently have over 400 contractors on assignment.
The acquisition includes SI’s four operating companies: in Canada, Commissioning & Technical Services (N.A) Ltd (CTSNA); in the USA, Commissioning & Technical Services (N.A) Inc (CTS US), Comtask Global Inc. (Comtask) and also MComm Solution of Puerto Rico Inc. (MComm).
Founded in 1969, the Morson Group is the UK’s leading technical recruiter and an engineering design and project management company with a global presence across engineering markets including rail, aerospace defence, nuclear and power, oil & gas, telecom, infrastructure and IT. With over 14,000 contractors on assignment and a group annual turnover over CAD$1.3 billion (£800million) the Group has 40 offices worldwide and is headquartered in Manchester, UK. The purchase strengthens Morson’s North American operations providing technical professional services in recruitment, consulting, turnkey projects and outsourcing. The exciting combination of SI and Morson will see the further development of a significant market leader with worldwide presence in nuclear and power, telecommunications, marine, aerospace, defence and other engineering sectors.
Ged Mason, CEO of Morson Group, comments: “There is a clear need for the talent and expertise in these sectors that we can source for our clients. The wider Group’s combined geographical presence will enhance reach and aid development of local personalized relationships with consultants, sub-contractors and clients and also provide the best possible continuity and variety of work assignments for our engaged contractor workforces”.
We are delighted that the SI team has joined the Morson Group family. SI, through CTSNA, has an extremely strong brand within Nuclear and Power and MComm/Comtask equally so in Telecom. Many of the staff at SI have long tenure with a wealth of experience and knowledge and the business shares similar values and culture with Morson. We look forward to offering our clients and contractors extended services and coverage as part of the enhanced Morson Group”.
Neil Smith, Co-Founder of SI comments:
“We connect technical skills and talent – people – with our client’s projects and deliverables, it’s what we do! Our priority was to find a partner whose core values assured continuity for our loyal customers and enhanced our offering”.
Rick Goodman, Co-Founder of SI, adds:
“Equally important to us was to identify a management team who share the same care and respect for the great employees who have contributed so much to our success, many of them for the majority of the company’s lifetime, we think we got a slam dunk with Morson!
Legal and financial advisors on the transaction were to Morson – Beyond Legal LLP, Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP and Deloitte LLP. To SI - Duff and Phelps and Keyser Mason Ball LLP.
