Smithers Purslow acquisition to rebrand

From 1 July, Smithers Purslow acquisition, Byrom Clark Roberts, will rebrand to its owner’s name, using a new logo. The Rutland-based consulting engineering, surveying and architectural firm bought out its Manchester-based counterpart in October 2019.

A refreshed Smithers Purslow logo includes Byrom Clark Roberts’ company star, acknowledging its heritage, while the strapline ‘Independent Professional Expertise’, remains the same. 

Having completed the merger process, which included integrating IT systems and operational processes across 10 UK offices, Smithers Purslow is ready to run as a single-named business, providing the insurance sector with what it describes as ‘unrivalled’ multi-disciplinary services.

Smithers Purslow employs 100 chartered engineers, surveyors, architects and support staff from its Glaston head office and branches in: Chester, Exeter, Leeds, Llandudno, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Reading.

The firm has a strong reputation for buildings and liability claims’ support, expert witness services and traditional private practice work, and director Andrew Bussey, says this is now boosted with an additional architectural skill set, giving clients access to wider expertise.  

“In 2013 we created a plan to grow the business and become one of the ‘go-to’ practices for complex building-related matters and disputes. Since then, we’ve consistently grown turnover by 25% per annum and extended our service portfolio. 

“A single brand consolidates our national presence and is a great platform to raise our profile and help us achieve future goals to double our turnover and staff numbers within five years.”
