Ergalis Group acquires Swiss firm InterXpert SA
Leading Human Resources services provider Ergalis Group (the Group) recently announced it has acquired Swiss firm InterXpert as part of its international expansion plans.
Having launched Talentpeople (the Group’s RPO subsidiary) in Spain under the Winid brand name, the Ergalis Group has now turned its attention to Switzerland.
InterXpert is a Genevan temporary employment agency specialising in the medical and construction sectors. It turned over €15m (£12.48m) in 2021 and has a dozen staff led by two founders, who are preparing to retire and will be supporting the Ergalis Group while a new manager is sought.
Specialising in the medical and construction sectors, it is believed InterXpert’s work aligns perfectly with the specialist staffing solutions offered by Ergalis for over 10 years.
“This acquisition reflects the Group’s strategic desire to develop its priority specialisms in Europe. The new base will also allow us to deploy all our brands and staffing solutions in Switzerland,” explains Frédéric Noyer, Ergalis Group Chairman.
The Ergalis Group hopes that this new presence in Geneva will pave the way for an ambitious development programme, with new agencies and offices to open in Switzerland’s other French-speaking cantons.
The Swiss acquisition is a key part of the Ergalis Group’s growth strategy, which began 10 years ago. It follows organic and external investments in the field of international recruitment in order to meet major clients’ needs more effectively.
The Group has also continued to grow organically in France, opening numerous agencies to consolidate its position as a specialist. In retail, three new openings are planned for this year (in Aix, Lille and Brest), while in medical, six agencies will launch (in Clermont-Ferrand, Montpellier, Rouen, Toulouse, Nice and Versailles).
