ManpowerGroup to Acquire Workshop Holding

February 25, 2013 – ManpowerGroup, a provider of workforce solutions, has entered into an agreement to acquire Workshop Holding AS, which, in turn, owns Workshop Bemanning og Kompetanse AS, Norway’s largest recruitment firm in the construction sector. Workshop Holding was formerly controlled by private equity company Borea Opportunity. With this acquisition, Workshop Bemanning will be incorporated into ManpowerGroup Norway’s Manpower brand. “This acquisition will further strengthen our company’s Manpower staffing business, and therefore its ability to provide the agility and flexibility required to drive business success for our clients,” said Hans Leentjes, ManpowerGroup president of Northern Europe. “This move also represents an excellent cultural fit, as Workshop Bemanning shares ManpowerGroup’s philosophy of providing an outstanding candidate experience to ensure we attract and retain the best talent available.”
