The Beam Team Acquires Ready Set Management
September 25, 2009 by Editor
Atlanta, GA (October 2, 2009) – The Beam Team has recently acquired the merchandising division of Ready Set Companies (RSM) retail services. Ready Set is headquartered in Schaumburg, IL with approximately 250 employees. RSM provides retail services specializing in in-store merchandising installation including product assembly. With a strong business presence in the Midwest market, RSM will improve the Beam Team market coverage, enhance their service offering and generate new efficiencies.
According to Beam Team President, Rick Hall, “This deal is a smart move for both companies on many levels. It will improve our ability to offer our existing customers better coverage and make us more competitive for future growth opportunities. Ready Set provides many of the same services as we do and they have an experienced work force. Adding them to our team builds our commitment to employ full-time (W-2) workers who consistently out-perform companies who rely on a temporary work force. Ready Set also has strong management that we will leverage to grow our business. Leading this group is Ed Martin, a former director at The Home Depot, who will bring great insight into the industry.
Ready Set also will help expand the Beam Team service offering. For example, product assembly is one new area where the Beam Team will help fuel new growth. Hall adds, “Our ability to offer product assembly services will help us provide more value to our existing customers and strengthen relationships.”
