Since its creation 7 years ago, ARCQ has become the reference in staffing in the life sciences industry. Manager and founder Sophie Arcq was looking for a partner to support the further growth of her company. She found that partner in House of Talents. Founded in 2008 by Steve Rousseau, House of Talents employs more than 650 specialists in various niche markets. The entire acquisition process was ultimately advised from start to end by KBC Securities.
The right match
" ARCQ specialises in project staffing for scientifically trained profiles working in sectors such as life sciences, food and chemistry. Today, we employ 75 consultants, both experienced profiles and young graduates. We offer our consultants the continuity of a permanent contract in combination with challenging customer projects," says Sophie Arcq.
Steve Rousseau, CEO of House of Talents, is happy with the acquisition. " ARCQ is a fast-growing company that focuses on quality service, which is fully in line with our vision. With the acquisition of ARCQ, we strengthen our presence in niche markets". ARCQ is the first acquisition since Sofindev's recent participation in House of Talents. "This acquisition is perfectly in line with our strategy to achieve a healthy balance between organic and acquisitive growth."
Co-shareholder Sophie Arcq will continue to manage the company in the future. "We enthusiastically take this opportunity to become part of House of Talents and are convinced that we have found the right partner to help us with our growth ambitions. This evolution allows our team to focus on the quality of our services to candidates, employees, and customers while relying on the expertise and experience of House of Talents."
