Solid Solutions – A TriMech Company has acquired Solid People, a UK-based team of CAD (computer aided design) recruitment specialists who help clients grow their engineering and design teams.
Based in Newark, Nottinghamshire, Solid People is led by Ross Bannister, who founded the company 13 years ago. Its specialty is recruitment services, to help clients fill positions that require proficiency in tools such as SOLIDWORKS and the Dassault Systémes 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Over the years, Ross has built a small team, who recently expanded their scope to provide software and training to their customers.
The acquisition is an important step in bringing industry-specific staffing services to Solid Solutions’ clients. Alan Sampson, Solid Solutions CEO, said he welcomes the unique expertise of the Solid People team.
“Solid People is known for its dedication to finding skilled people quickly, so clients can work efficiently, complete projects on time, and be successful. In a time when it is particularly challenging and time-consuming to fill technical positions, we expect demand for recruitment support to continue to grow.”
— Alan Sampson, Solid Solutions CEO
Coincidentally, Ross is a former employee of Solid Solutions. He explained that he is looking forward to being part of the company again.
“Our team is ready to collaborate with a wider team of talented people and to be part of Solid Solutions’ overall plan to continually expand services to meet client needs. Together, we’re going to make a real difference in a lot of workplaces.”
— Ross Bannister, Solid People Director
Solid Solutions supports a community of more than 15,000 UK- and Ireland-based clients. These span a wide variety of sectors and include product designers, mechanical engineers, manufacturers, and educational institutions. TriMech, based in the U.S., acquired Solid Solutions in 2022. Within the TriMech divisions, recruitment services is already a popular offering in North America.
Clients who work with Solid People’s recruitment team or engage with Solid People for SOLIDWORKS or 3DEXPERIENCE solutions or support will see no immediate changes to how they do business with the company. At the same time, they will have access to an even wider range of products and services offered by Solid Solutions and the larger TriMech team. These range from specialized skill-based training courses, to cloud hosting, to enterprise-wide solutions that support complete digital transformation.
