Circle8 Group, part of the Swiss-based Axiom Partners, immediately acquires the Swiss IT staffing and consulting company Swisslinx. The acquisition fits within the International Buy-and-build strategy of Circle8 group.

Previously, Circle8, formerly active as the Staffing Group, took over all the Dutch parties FixedToday and Seven Stars. Swisslinx is now also available. The Swiss party continues to operate from the current brand name. The organization continues its activities independently of other staffing organizations that fall under the Circle8 Group banner.

“We are very proud to be able to expand our staffing strategy under Circle8 group internationally with Swisslinx,” says Guus Franke, CEO of Axiom Partners. “Foreign expansion is an important step in increasing our international strength, with the aim of maximizing the economies of scale that Circle8 group’s customers bring . With Swisslinx, we are not only the market leader in Switzerland at once, it also makes us one of the largest ICT staffing and service providers in Europe in one fell swoop, which will facilitate a next step into markets such as Germany.”

The Swiss IT staffing and consulting company grew on average by almost twenty percent per year in recent years. ” We have added major international clients to our portfolio over the past 23 years, ” said Olivier Ruedin, CEO and co-founder of SwissLinx. “We are confident that the switch to Circle8 Group and Axiom Partners will allow us to continue to grow and expand our international market share. Now that we are part of a major international player, we can also offer our candidates Foreign opportunities.”

The transaction came about after an exclusive process with the four founders and owners. Ruedin: “with Axiom Partners, SwissLinx is in good hands. Their entrepreneurial nature, long-term vision and knowledge of the sector were the decisive factors for taking this sales route”. Axiom Partners also looks back on a pleasant process and looks forward to a bright future with Swisslinx in its portfolio. Franke: “the professionals at Swisslinx have extensive knowledge of technology, databases and strong consultancy qualities that strengthen our group. This feels familiar. I see great opportunities in our cooperation and I am convinced that we will learn a lot from each other’s qualities.”
