EMPRESARIA ENTERS FINNISH AND ESTONIAN MARKETS
CRAWLEY, UK: Empresaria Group plc, the AIM-quoted global staffing specialist,
has expanded its international footprint by acquiring a 60% stake in the
specialist staffing companies, MediradiX Oy (Finland) and MediradiX Ou
(Estonia), which provide doctors, dentists and nurses for hospitals and health
centres on a temporary basis.
This investment signifies Empresaria's entry into both Finland and Estonia for
the first time and means the company now operates in 22 countries worldwide.
MediradiX was set up in 2003 and is headed by Managing Director, Ralf Hjorth. It
employs both Finnish and Estonian workers.
Empresaria's Chief Executive Miles Hunt said: "MediradiX operates in a region
with significant growth opportunities. There is an increasing trend of Estonian
doctors applying for permission to work abroad, providing MediradiX with a
strong pool of candidates in a sector experiencing a skills shortage in Finland.
Our investment is in line with a very defined Group policy of focussing on high
growth staffing businesses, in different geographic markets and in diverse,
specialist sectors. I look forward to working closely with Ralf and his team."
