THE FIRST FORAY into Worcester has been made by Baldwins, with its latest acquisition.
Two-director firm Sandison Rouse & Co has joined Baldwins, taking the firm to 15 offices.
All the existing Sandisons team will move across to Baldwins.
David Baldwin, a partner at Baldwins Accountants, said: “Worcester is an area that we are keen to develop and have been looking for a suitable location for some time.
“Sandison Rouse & Co is a great fit with our ethos at Baldwins Accountants for providing a top-class, friendly service.
Baldwins is keen to expand further in the locality, Baldwin added. “This has been the busiest year in our history for acquisitions across the Midlands and Wales – and we don’t want to stop yet.”
The new client base will be offered a broader range of services under the Baldwins umbrella.
Sandison director Karen Cavens (pictured right), who has worked at the company for 27 years, said: “Our team has a great deal of experience in a wide range of areas, particularly the medical profession, and this acquisition will enable our customers to make the most of Baldwins Accountants’ experts in other specialised fields.”
