nGAGE Specialist Recruitment has acquired Setsquare.
Established in 1987, Setsquare operates from six offices throughout the UK, focusing solely within two core areas of the built environment - construction and maintenance.
Setsquare will be headed up by managing director, David Trotman, who will be leading the business and continuing its development. Trotman has been involved with Setsquare for around a year; he previously owned a consultancy business and nGAGE say it is through this business that he became involved with Setsquare.
nGAGE CEO, Tim Cook, commented, "It is great to bring such an established business into the Group. They operate in a sector that we know very well, strengthening out offering in a number of locations. The acquisition signifies the next phase of our development and having worked closely with David throughout the process, I am confident that Setsquare will continue to develop under his leadership, providing more and more opportunities for staff at all levels."
Trotman added, "Backed by nGAGE, we have been provided with an opportunity that the whole business can profit from. With access to Group-level support, and benefitting from the expertise of nGAGE’s modern back office functions, we can really push forward and enhance our reputation, whilst also modernising our offering."
Previous Setsquare owner and original founder, Mike Watson, said, "I want to thank everyone involved with Setsquare as the business has transformed over the last 28 years. With David and nGAGE I feel that it is being left in good hands as the business heads into new territory. Setsquare has been my life's work and I can't think of a better home for it going forward."
