Thriving logistic personnel recruitment firm Transline Resource Group has signed a deal to move its head office from Halifax to Brighouse.

The firm is also expanding overseas and now has offices in Dublin, Budapest and Toronto.

Three years ago it turned over £25 million and predicts that to reach £65 million this year.

Transline Resource, which was formed in 1989 by current directors Paul Beasley and Jon Taylor, comprises four divisions: driving, industrial, permanent and training.

It specialises in the provision and on-site management of trained flexible supply chain staff, providing over 6,000 driving and industrial staff every day through its network of over 35 on-site offices across the UK. Its clients range from local manufacturers to household name retailers and distributors.

The company employs 30 staff locally coordinating finances and the management of its on-site office network plus 95 full time staff at its Trafford Park operational HQ and training school who coordinate the development and supply of all temporary staff nationwide.

“We have built up a deep knowledge of the logistics sector. The key to our success is reliable delivery, we contract manage staff and we are completely accountable to our customers,” said Mr Beasley.

Richard Hobson, a director at business and financial advisers Grant Thornton, said: “Over the last few years, we have worked closely with Resource Transline as the business has evolved and expanded.

“We have helped the management team to develop a sound financial model and it is extremely satisfying to see the growth and success they have achieved in such a short space of time.”
