Cole Jarman acquired by RSK Group

At the end of November 2017, Cole Jarman Ltd was acquired by RSK Group plc.

The acquisition presents excellent growth opportunities for both businesses. We will add new services to those RSK is already providing and being part of a larger group means that we have access to additional and, in some cases, wholly new resources and markets. Most importantly, we are joining a group of people who share our values and are as enthusiastic about the future as we are.

As far as our clients and colleagues in the industry are concerned, we are determined that it will be business as usual. We shall continue to trade as Cole Jarman Ltd, but as a wholly owned part of the RSK group. You will be dealing with the same people who will provide the same level of service that has been our trademark to date. We aim to ensure that the day-to-day experience of working with us will only improve; we are confident that will be the case, given our access to the much broader base of resources that RSK can offer.

We thank you for your support to date and we look forward to continuing and developing our working relationship with you as we enter this new chapter in our company history. You have helped us get where we are and we hope we can continue to help you to achieve your goals and objectives.
