White Young Green is pleased to announce the acquisition of Nolan Ryan Partnership (NRP) – a Quantity Surveying and Project Management business employing over 70 staff in Cork, Dublin, Kilkenny, Limerick and Waterford. The Nolan Ryan Partnership was founded in 1986 and has developed steadily with a mix of public and private sector clients throughout Ireland.
This acquisition is an important step within the corporate development strategy at WYGto deliver a broader range of complementary services to its Clients in Ireland and internationally. The acquisition of Nolan Ryan Partnership follows that of Tweeds earlier this year and Denis Rooney Associates in 2004 to continue the growth of the Surveying and Management Services within the WYG Group.
The business will continue to trade under the name of Nolan Ryan Partnership but will form part of an enlarged Management Services business in WYG with a combined complement of over 300 staff. John Ryan, currently Managing Partner of Nolan Ryan Partnership becomes the Joint Managing Director of the WYG Ireland Management Services Business Unit.
John Purvis, Chief Executive of WYG Plc commented:-
“This acquisition is a significant step forward in the ongoing development of WYG in Ireland. Nolan Ryan Partnership is one of Ireland’s largest indigenous chartered quantity surveying businesses. It is a successful cost management consultancy which brings with it a strong order book from an established portfolio of clients across both the public and private sectors in the south of Ireland. It enjoys a valued reputation for quality and innovation and will enable WYG to engage much more strategically with clients in the Republic of Ireland at a time when trading conditions are extremely favourable and indigenous cost consultancy services are in short supply”.
John Ryan, Joint Managing Director of the expanded Business Unit in Ireland was enthusiastic about the new venture.
”The combination of Nolan Ryan’s existing strengths and people with the excellent business support provided by WYG will help us become a major force in the industry.”
