Pulse chief executive Richard MacMillan said the acquisition of Project ASC had increased the scale of the company’s social care staffing business by 25 per cent. “Pulse’s recent branch openings in Manchester, Leeds, Ilford and London have already increased the size of our social care operation by over 30 per cent, enabling Pulse to deliver sustained organic growth alongside this acquisition,” said Mr MacMillan. We look forward to working with the talented team at Project ASC to continue our growth in this important market.” “Social care offers strong margins and attractive growth potential and the care sector of the market is estimated to be worth more than £2 billion per annum.
