Seven months after acquiring R&G Global Consultants, Argon & Co has fully integrated the acquisition within its ranks and retired the R&G Global Consultants brand.

Announced early February, Argon & Co’s purchase of R&G Global Consultants saw a team of around 30 consultants in the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, UK and Germany join its offices in these countries. Formed in 2018 by the merger between France’s Argon Consulting and UK’s Crimson & Co, Argon & Co now has approximately 380 employees according to its LinkedIn account. 

The two firms had worked together “successfully on numerous significant projects” over the past years, leading the French-UK consultancy to acquire the boutique Netherlands-headquartered player. Both firms specialise in operations, supply chain and lean excellence consulting services.

“Having worked on significant projects with various Argon & Co clients over the past year, R&G is now taking the next step to become Argon & Co. This move represents another exciting step in Argon & Co’s expansion strategy,” said Yvan Salamon, CEO of Argon & Co. 

Aart Willem de Wolf, co-founder of R&G said: “This move will allow R&G to further leverage Argon & Co’s ever-growing portfolio of knowledge, services and expertise. We are pleased to become Argon & Co and look forward to further increasing our footprint.

Christian Mertz, also a co-founder of R&G added: “Argon & Co cares about making a real difference for clients while providing a great place to work. We are very happy to be part of their team.”

Last month, private equity-backed Argon & Co completed another acquisition, picking up the procurement consulting team of Ayming in the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, the firm is also expanding stateside, having just opened its second office in the United States.
